It was a short but sweet winter season for Notre Dame across the board in 2021 as every team put together a successful season.

Both the boys and girls swimming teams were outstanding, with the boys winning the GR Division I title — and the swimming teams combining to put up 10 GR all-stars.

Meanwhile, the girls hoops team won yet another sectional title, the boys basketball team advanced to the sectional title game and the hockey team earned the No. 1 seed in the Class A tournament.

All and all a good representation by Notre Dame this past season.
