TOL. NOTRE DAME 71
FINDLAY 29
Playing state-ranked Toledo Notre Dame is tough enough.
Playing the Eagles when they’ve got something to prove makes it that much tougher.
Notre Dame, still stinging from a three-game losing streak that included its first Three Rivers Athletic Conference loss in three years, cruised to a 71-29 win over Findlay in TRAC girls basketball action on Thursday.
Tierra Floyd, a 6-foot-2 junior being recruited by several Division I colleges, scored 22 points. Kaayla McIntyre, another 6-2 junior, added 14 as Notre Dame, which slid to No. 9 in the state rankings after losing to No. 1 Mason and No. 3 Kettering Fairmont in the Classic in the Country Tournament and to Toledo Whitmer in a TRAC matchup last week, improved to 11-3 overall and 8-1 in the league.
“Floyd is such a tremendous athlete. With her size and ability to play like a guard, she creates a lot of issues,” said FHS coach Connie Lyon. “I was pleased with how we played in spurts. But we strugggled on the defensive end because they are so athletic and so solid on the interior.”
Zoe Swisher, Joslyn Bendt and Sarah Thomas all scored six points for Findlay (2-14, 2-7 TRAC).

NOTRE DAME (11-3, 8-1)
Copeland 1-0–3, Huth 2-1–5, Miller 2-1–6, Ohlinger 0-1–1, Gaines 3-0–6, McIntyre 6-2–14, Goedde 1-1–3, Jefferson 2-1–6, Parker 0-1–1, Floyd 11-4–26. TOTALS: 28-52 12-18–71.
