On August 31, 1963, Xaverian Brothers' provincial Brother Gilroy, C.F.X., the first headmaster, Brother Marcellus, C.F.X., and Cardinal Cushing officiated at the dedication ceremony for the new Xaverian Brothers High School. An article dated August 24, 1963 from the Westwood News described the new school: During the first year, 290 ninth graders will occupy the first floor wing. There will be 1,000 students when they graduate in four years… [Brother Marcellus] is happy with the $2,300,000 structure, designed by Shields Brothers of Quincy and Scully Contractors of Boston… Four lay teachers will join the brothers and the faculty in making the program, "flexible, modern, comprehensive, interesting, and above all tough." "We're social studies and language conscious," the principal continued. Students of Latin, French, Spanish and Russian "placed by ability" can utilize the up-to-date language lab… The chapel is simply and beautifully designed with striking stained glass windows. Other facilities include a 10,000 volume library, a large cafeteria, a 500-seat auditorium, a gymnasium, 25 classrooms… and laboratories for biology, physics and chemistry… The building is equipped with an up-to-date public address system reaching all sections and closed-circuit TV in all classrooms; "we can both transmit and receive." The extensive extra-curricular program will include music, speech, debating, dramatics, journalism, photography, science, math and foreign language clubs. Also radio - the principal himself a longtime ham radio operator - and athletics."

Dayton (79-64) In 1966, UCLA was the defending NCAA champion but while the Bruins may have been No.1 in the country, they were No.2 on campus. The freshman team was better and beat the varsity 75–60 to prove it. A year later, those frosh were sophomores and they beat everyone in sight. Thirty and oh. At the NCAA tourney in Louisville, they won by margins of 49, 16, 15 and 15—the last against Dayton in the title game. Alcindor, the 7-foot New Yorker who would later become one of the greatest pro basketball players ever as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, dominated the college game as his future pro colleagues Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain had done. He was easily the best player of the year and the tournament. NCAA Football Champions USC (10-1-0)
