Emy Wardle powers Notre Dame to program's first state hoops title

NORMAL - Peoria Notre Dame's Emy Wardle drives to the paint past Nashville's Samantha Brinkmann during second half action of their title game at CEFCU Arena in Normal. Wardle later made the game-winning jumper with less than two seconds to play to deliver the Irish's first state basketball title in an exciting 48-46 finish. Wardle, a freshman, led all scorers with 18 points. Game story and more photos coming soon.
