World Class Indeed
The Tar Heels had lost their last two meetings
with Notre Dame, most recently in September.
The Irish entered the championship game
unbeaten and untied. They found the goal in the
first 16 seconds. But junior forward Casey
Nogueira answered with what her coach called
“world class” goals 51 minutes into the match
and with only two minutes left, and the Heels
earned their record 19th NCAA championship
in December. It was the team’s 100th win in
the tournament, and it came in front of the
home fans in Cary. Story, page 10.
