Going Green

The Recycling Club organized a recycle day on campus, challenging students to decrease the amount of trash generated during their lunch periods. Overall, students reduced trash from an average of 35 bags produced during all four lunch periods to only five bags. The winners were the freshmen class. Although they are the largest class at Xaverian, they produced the least amount of trash at only half of a bag! For more information visit the Xaverian Student Life News page.

Xaverian standout Chris Wagner ’09 Signs 3-year Contract with Ducks

The Anaheim Ducks have signed center Xaverian standout Chris Wagner ’09 to a three-year contract. Chris helped propel Xaverian to the semi-finals of the Super 8 hockey tournament in 2008. “Playing at Xaverian gave me my foundation to learn to play with bigger, stronger kids,” said Chris.

Wagner, 20, recently completed his sophomore season with Colgate of the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC), scoring 17-34/51 points with 69 penalty minutes (PIM). Leading all NCAA Division 1 underclassmen in scoring, Wagner’s 51 points currently rank sixth in the nation. He ranked as high as fourth in the nation when the Raiders played their final game of the ECAC tournament (third-place game vs. Cornell on Mar. 17). In addition, the 6-0, 200-pound bruising center recorded the second-most points in one season for Colgate since former Duck Andy McDonald (58 points) did so in 1999-00.

The Xaverian graduate completes his collegiate career having scored 26-44/70 points with 95 PIM over two seasons and 79 games. He co-led the ECAC in scoring this year and ranked second in assists with 15-24/39 points in 27 conference games. In addition, Wagner had a career-high 11-game point streak (7-10/17) from Feb. 4-Mar. 16. Accolades for his sophomore season include ranking among the top three finalists for the ECAC Best Defensive Award, as well as Second Team ECAC All-League honors.

Chris was selected in the fifth round (122nd overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
