Be sure to check often for updates and the latest info... to be posted under various links on the WIAA INFO PAGE of this XavierHawksSports.com web site... and... also on the Facebook page called Xavier Hawks Sports.
One of the most important sections might be the link called PLAYOFF MATERIAL. That page will have TONS of details, plenty for the die-hard fan and some of it is not-too-complicated for the just-interested fan. Two specific and very helpful items to read, if you have not yet done so, are called PLAYOFF PROCEDURES -- one is the COMPLETE and lengthy pack on the WIAA web site, and, the other option is the CONDENSED version, which we created to keep you informed... if you really only want the simple, basic Playoff info regarding how teams qualify, or the seeding process, etc.
In 2019, the Hawks have now qualified for the WIAA Playoffs 17 times in the past 18 years under head coach David Hinkens... who is in his 19th year coaching XHS. It is the 20th time in school history that Xavier will participate in the Playoffs. For a complete look at the all-time Playoff History for Xavier, see the HISTORY-RECORDS section, using the link above in the black header on this XavierHawksSports.com web site.
Technically, XHS qualified for the Playoffs in the first season that Hinkens coached the Hawks. However, an obscure, seldom-used tiebreaker (which was eliminated the following year) late in the process to determine the entire Playoff field "bumped" Xavier from actually "competing" in the Playoffs that year.
