6. Notre Dame makes it nine straight
As the snow melted, there was some doubt this spring that maybe, just maybe, someone could beat the Notre Dame of Hingham golf team. After all, Player of the Year Alison Eleey transferred, leaving the eight-time champions minus one of the best players in the state. Think again. Led by Lauren Flynns (right) low round of 72, the Cougars won their ninth straight state title, beating second-place Fontbonne by 16 strokes. Our goal was simply to get better, said coach Dave Gianferante. Usually were after
undefeated seasons or states. The only thing I said to these kids this year is, Our goal is everybody gets better, and I think they have.
