The Notre Dame Tritons are golden girls again. They defeated DeForest 52-42 to capture their second straight WIAA Division 2 state championship. Senior Allison LeClaire led the way with 24 points and hit five of six free throws down the stretch to lock up the title. Notre Dame jumped out to a 6-0 lead on three point hoops from the Campbell sisters, sophomore Olivia went first, followed by Eliza. They never trailed in the game and built the lead to as much as 16 before the Norskies ramped up the defensive pressure and closed the gap to 44-40 in the 4th quarter. Freshman Katelyn Morgan then hit a layup to stretch the lead to 7 and DeForest was forced to foul. They fouled the wrong girl as LeClaire calmly finished off the night.

The Campbell sisters split 21 points with Eliza scoring 12 and Olivia 9. Notre Dame finished the year on an 18 game winning streak to complete a 27-1 championship season,
