Tiger Basketball will Head to Naples (FL) on Christmas Break Next Season
By Jacob Hayslip
In a new tradition establish two seasons ago by Head Coach Kevin Klein, St. Xavier Basketball takes a trip to Florida every other season to play in a Holiday tournament over Christmas vacation. This coming season, the Tigers will head to Golden Gate High School to participate in the Gulfshore Shoutout.
The tournament will take place December 27 to December 30, 2014 in Naples, Florida.
This will be the second installment of the Tigers’ Florida trips. Two seasons ago, St. X participated in the Lehigh Regional Medical Center Holiday Madness Tournament, which was held at East Lee County High School in Fort Myers, Florida. The Tigers defeated Walton High School (GA) and America High School (FL) before falling to Immokalee High School (FL) in the semifinals of the tournament.
With a senior-laden team already getting into action this summer, it looks as though St. X has a very promising team in the works. The second trip to Florida this coming season is yet another testament to how hard the Tigers have worked under the direction of Coach Klein.
We look forward to another exciting season of Tiger Basketball!
