Xavier Prep softball enters national picture

Xavier Prep’s Gators are among the Elite Eighty prep teams listed by the Extra Innings Softball media site.

Xavier was not ranked early in the season, but a strong 8-1 start made people take notice, and the Gators recently slipped into the No. 47 slot.

Congrats to head coach Brad Downes, his players and assistant coaches for their efforts.

We can’t wait to see what the future brings in 2021.
