On Saturday November 9, 2013, the Tiger Cross Country team traveled to the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington Kentucky for the KHSAA Cross Country State Championship. They were the favorite heading in and they did not disappoint. The Tigers won with a team score of 53 points and had 5 runners place in the top 16. It was the school’s 20th Cross Country State Championship, 3rd in a row and 4th in the last 5 years.

The team was led by Chris Striegel who placed 2nd and was followed by Ben Metzger (9th), Stephen Kinny (14th), Spencer Hayden (15th) and Jack Minogue (16th). The nearest team to the St. X pack was Trinity who placed 2nd with a score of 133 points.

Tiger Volleyball won the Kentucky high school volleyball state championship for the seventh time in eight years, beating Trinity 25-18, 25-21, 27-25 on senior night.  The Tigers regained the championship from Trinity, which ended their six-year streak by winning last year’s state title match after losing to its archrival three times during the regular season.

The Tigers (14-2) dominated the net — winning the kills battle 35-26. Ratterman led all players with 10 kills. Zach Bixler added six kills for the Tigers, and Sam Bibelhauser had five.  The teams fought through nine ties in the first game. With the score knotted at 11, St. X scored eight of the next 10 points to build a 19-13 lead. The Shamrocks pulled within 20-17, but St. X scored five of the last six points.  Trinity took a 4-2 lead in the second game and didn’t trail until St. X went ahead 11-10 despite battling through four ties. The Tigers built a 17-14 lead before the Shamrocks went on a rally to take a 19-18 advantage.  St. X knotted it up at 20, then scored five of the final six points to go up two games.

Even though that put Trinity two games down, it didn’t go out without a fight in the third game as the rivals battled through 10 ties. Early on the Rocks looked sharp and built a 9-4 lead. St. X scored the next five to tie it.  From that point on the largest lead came when St. X was ahead 19-16. However, Trinity tied it at 23. The Tigers had three chances to win, but Trinity managed to survive until St. X won 27-25.
