The D1 team hits the ice to take on Pinnacle High School at 8:15 p.m. Saturday at the Ice Den..  The theme is a jersey out.

The team has won playoff games against Brophy on Jan. 22 (3-0) and the semi-final game against O’Connor (3-1) last Sunday, Jan. 29.

 On Saturday, the Saints will play against Pinnacle High school for the title of state champions.  The boys on the team and the many student fans are excited for the opportunity to win this tournament.

Cameron Judge or “Jugdey” is a senior who has played for Notre Dame’s Hockey program three out of his four years of high school.  He did not play his sophomore year because of his commitment to his club team, the Junior Coyotes Triple A.  He is one of the students favorite players to cheer for as he saves goal after goal every game.  Judge plays goalie.

He said, “This season has been going well,” adding it has been the best in terms of “great team bonding.”

When asked about how he feels for the upcoming finals, Judge said he is “more excited than anything.”

He exhibited cool confidence when talking about his final game as a high school student.  

Merek Hertle is one of the three freshman on varsity this year, and fans got to see him get a lot of ice time during Sunday’s game against O’Connor.

“I thought it was a good game,” he said. “We got stronger as it went on.”

Hertle is a bit on the small side of the team due to his youth, but definitely a quick and fierce right winger.  He said he is “very excited” for the final game next week.

He plans to continue to play for his club team, the Junior Coyotes, while awaiting next year’s school season.

The O’Connor game drew some students who aren’t hockey regulars, senior Matthew Metz for one. He said that he came because he wanted to support the team and because he saw the reminder on Twitter.

Will he be at Saturday’s game, too?  “Yes, of course. I am amped for the state game.”

Metz said he believes that the Saints will win Saturday: “We are the best team with the most talented players.”
