Xenia Athletic Hall of Fame

Community Dignitaries, Xenia Community School Administrators, Former Inductees, and XHS Supporters :

On behalf of the Trustees of the Xenia Athletic Hall of Fame, I would like to extend to you the opportunity to attend the ceremony for those individuals and the team to be inducted into the Xenia Athletic Hall of Fame for the Class of 2014.

The inaugural class was inducted in 2011 and this is only the fourth class of outstanding athletes, a coach, a community contributor, and a team to be inducted.  Last year’s induction ceremony was a rewarding experience for the fans of Xenia athletics and this year’s ceremony will be just as outstanding.  Not only will you get to hear the athletes relive their memories and share their inspirational words but we will also serve dessert and light hors d’oeuvres prior to their speeches along with giving you a chance to speak with those who have given so much to Xenia’s rich tradition of athletic excellence.

The Hall of Fame induction ceremony will consist of two parts:

  • The introduction of the Class of 2014 at the XHS basketball game on Friday night, December 5th.
  • The induction ceremony and dinner on Saturday, December 6th at 5:30 PM at Faith Community Methodist Church
