After winning its fourth-straight district championship, the Notre Dame girls basketball team had multiple players garner Class 5 District 1 All-District honors.

Being named all-district for the fourth time was senior guard Lexi Rubel, who also earned the title of district player of the year for the third-straight season.

Rubel was dubbed the Class 5 District 1 Player of the Year after averaging 15.9 points and 10.3 rebounds per game. Lexi also produced 4.9 steals and 3.3 steals per contest, while shooting 52.1% from the field and 42.2% from 3-point range.

The next Bulldog to garner all-district was junior guard Tori Rubel as she became a three-time all-district honoree with the nod. Tori averaged 8.8 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.2 assists, two steals and 1.3 deflections per game.

Notre Dame’s third and final player named all-district was junior guard Jenna Givens, which is her first time receiving the honor.

Givens and Tori Rubel both led the Bulldogs in overall 3-pointers as Jenna made a team-high 61 threes off 187 attempts, while Tori knocked down 32 (117 attempts). Lexi finished with the third-most treys behind them at 27.

Notre Dame was seeded second in the Class 5 District 1 Tournament as the Bulldogs handled their three opponents by a combined total of 197-89 (No. 7 Hillsboro 80-23, No. 3 North County 67-39 and No. 1 Farmington 50-27).
