“We had a really good season this year,” said Notre Dame coach John Trahan. “The boys were regional runnersup and the girls were the regional champs so I’m really proud of them.”
In the boys’ division, Loyola won the team title and Parkview was second.
On the girls’ side, Berwick edged out E.D. White for the team title.
“We got a tough draw in the boys division and we didn’t do quite as well as we had hoped to do,” said Trahan of his team’s performance at the state meet. “The girls, we thought we could contend for the state title if we got a good draw and we played well. And we did play well.”
In boys’ action, Notre Dame’s lone singles qualifier, Andrew Kondert, won his first match but he lost in the second round to Chris Anders of Parkview.
