The Notre Dame Eagles may have some other business to attend to before the girls basketball state tournament begins next month. First there are two big games at the prestigious Classic in the Country invitational in Berlin, Ohio. Then they have a their sights set on winning a third straight Three Rivers Athletic Conference championship.
But as Toledo Blade veteran sports writer Steve Junga points out in his feature story that was published in The Blade on January 9, 2014, the Eagles have one true quest — reaching a third straight state final four and this time winning a championship.
That task is easier said than done, however, even for a Notre Dame team that returned four starters from last season’s 25-4 squad.
Nothing less will do for the Eagles, who are led by senior third-year starter senior Jayda Worthy, and junior returning starters Tierra Floyd, Kaayla McIntyre, and Christiana Jefferson.
“We’ve talked a lot about not only getting back there, but staying and playing two games,” Notre Dame head coach Travis Galloway said of the final four. “But it takes a lot of luck and a lot of ability to get down there, and there’s a lot of good teams that can beat anybody. We’re trying to take that next step, but we have a lot of work ahead of us.”
