All Notre Dame fall sports have come to an end, but this past season has definitely been one to remember. 

Starting with cross country, the girls had a third place finish at the state meet. While the girls took the third, the boys took first and won it all. This is the first time time the boys cross country team has won state in school history. 

The tennis team, golf team and the boys soccer team continue the theme of competing at the state competition.

The boys soccer team played in the championship game for the third year in a row. The Tritons fell just short, losing the game 1-0 and becoming the state runners-up.

The tennis team headed to state down in madison and competed at the Nielsen Tennis Stadium. They fell short in the quarter finals round. 

While the girls golf team did not make it to state as a team, falling short by a couple strokes. Two NDA golfers qualified for state as Individuals. Senior Grace Durkin and Junior Sophia Baek both played at University Ridge where Grace came out with a 10th place finish in state for D1 competition.

The girls volleyball team played against the fourth-ranked Freedom Irish in a regional match and fell short in a 1-3 set count. 

The boys volleyball team played against the 2nd ranked Kimberly Papermakers in a regional match and also fell short in a 1-3 set count. 

The football team was one game away from making it into the state tournament. They played against West Salem and fell to them in a back-and-forth game with a final score of 14-21.

The Tritons have all had amazing seasons and did not go down without a fight. All of the scores were very close.

With fall sports season coming to an end, that means winter sports games are just around the corner. 

Boys hockey, boys basketball and girls basketball are all starting up. With the girls being back-to-back state champions and the boys having just had one of their best seasons in recent school history, this will be a good year.

While the dance team is a year-round sport, last Saturday’s Hortonville Invite saw the dance team take a second place finish in Pom, a third place finish for Jazz, 5th place finish in Football Routine, and 4th place finish in a duet performed by two team members, Brooke Tuszka and Sydney Miles.
