Tigers Named MaxPreps Cup Champion

Saint Xavier High School is proud to announce that it has been named Kentucky’s top all-around athletic program. The Tigers placed first in the 2020-21 MaxPreps Cup standings with a total of 1,150 points.

This marks the second consecutive year that the Tigers earned the top spot in the annual rankings, and the third time within the last four years.

The 2020-21 school year closed with seven state championships. Titles were won in cross country, lacrosse, soccer, swimming & diving, tennis, track & field, and volleyball.

In order to determine the top programs in the country, MaxPreps has developed a ranking system. The system takes into account a school’s success in 10 sports: football, basketball, baseball/softball, volleyball, wrestling, lacrosse, track & field, swimming, cross country, and soccer.

School programs receive points for state titles, runner-up finishes based on the type of sport, the size of the state, the enrollment classification of the sport, and the total number of teams competing in that classification. Points are also awarded for appearing in national rankings for various sports.
