"They're a quality ballclub," said Notre Dame coach Jeff Graviett, whose squad is the defending Class 3 state champion. "If we make it to the postseason, we might see them again."

While Notre Dame improved to 12-0, junior Katie Bond is 11-0 after pitching a three-hitter. She struck out five and walked one.

The Bulldogs, who had five hits, scored in the third inning on an RBI squeeze bunt by junior Summer Burger.
