Athletic Hall of Fame

Hall of Fame Mission

The Xenia Athletic Hall of Fame was established in 2010 in order to honor the greatest athletes, coaches, community contributors, and teams from the rich traditions of Xenia East High School, Xenia Central High School, Spring Valley High School, and Xenia High School.  The Hall of Fame committee also recognizes the importance of the inductees serving as role models – athletically, academically, and/or professionally – for many of the aspiring student-athletes in the Xenia community.  Not only does the Hall of Fame committee charge itself with honoring athletic achievements and associates but we also recognize the importance of supporting the endeavors of various organizations and individuals in building a stronger school community.”
