By SPENCER DAVIDSON

TROY, N.Y. (WKTV) - Emily Durr scored 29 points in her high school finale to lead the Notre Dame Jugglers girls basketball team to the Class B State Title Saturday.

The Jugglers faced Bishop Kearney at Hudson Valley Community College for the right to hoist the state hardware.

Notre Dame took a 32-20 lead into halftime, where they would come out in the second half and run away with it.

Led by Durr and 8th grader, Claire Sehring, who had 19 points of her own, the Jugglers expanded their lead to 52-34 after three quarters of play.

In the 4th, the momentum continued as they held Bishop Kearney to just 2 points while scoring 19 of their own to take the state crown with a final of 71-36.

Along with the team victory, Durr, who leaves Notre Dame on top, surpassed former C-NS and current UConn sophomore Breanna Stewart for most career points in Section III history with her 29.
