GIRLS BASKETBALL -- No. 2 Notre Dame girls knock off top seed and previously unbeaten Fillmore in Class D1 final. As a player, Notre Dame alumnus Tom McCulley was as successful as they come. He has carried that success into his career as head coach of the Irish girls basketball team. For the fourth time in six years, McCulley’s Irish claimed a Section V championship, earning a convincing 39-25 win over No. 1 seed and previously unbeaten Fillmore in Friday’s Class D1 title game. “It was our best game of the year,” said McCulley of his girls’ effort. “I’m so proud of their effort. I’m not easy to play for and these girls have bought in.”

GIRLS BASKETBALL -- Notre Dame outlasted Andover/Whiteville in the Class D State Qualifier. The Fighting Irish used a great defensive effort to stop the Panthers, and will meet Section VI'S Sherman.

Emma Sisson scored a game-high 16 points, including a number of clutch free throws down the stretch, and Notre Dame withstood a furious rally from Class D2 winner Andover/Whitesville to come away with a 38-34 win at Dansville High School to advance to this weekend’s Far West Regional final.
