Notre Dame High School Boys State Basketball Tournament 2019

Had the Notre Dame High School Boys basketball team stayed injury free, it would have been one of Head Coach Jarrod West’s most talented teams to date. But, despite the team facing injuries, the boys have persevered and maintained the #1 spot in the state before landing themselves the #3 seed in the West Virginia Boys State Basketball Tournament. After being upset by Trinity High School in the Sectional Title game, the boys pulled together and brought home the Regional Title and secured their bid to the State Tournament.

“Heading into the State Tournament the team’s energy is high and they have been playing hard in their games leading up to the tournament”, according to Coach West.

This will be Notre Dame’s eighth consecutive State Tournament appearance. “It was important to the team to continue their State Tournament run as well as for seniors who have made an appearance throughout their entire high school career”, said Coach West. If the Fighting Irish win the 2019 Single “A” WV State Championship, the Notre Dame Boys Basketball team will have the most successful Single “A” boys basketball program in the State.

Freshman Jaidyn West acknowledged his history with the WV State Basketball Tournament, “I’ve been going since I was a kid and I have wanted to play in the Charleston since then, and getting to go to States and getting to play with this group of guys will be fun.”

Until a season ending injury, Joel Maurer led the Irish basketball team, and is one of the top players West has ever coached. Various other Irish players have stepped up to lead the team to the State Tournament, First Team All-State player Gabe Zummo is averaging 20 points a game and is the team’s leading rebounder, followed by Jaidyn West who averages 15 points a game. Tyler Hardesty has been a key defensive player and third leading scorer with nine (9) points a game, followed by senior Nathan Helm and Elijah Goodman who both bring in seven (7) points a game. Eli Gordon has stepped up and plays with intense energy since Maurer’s injury.

“It’s been very special going all four (4) years to states, even one time would be great, but it just shows you not to take anything for granted”, said Zummo. He continued,“Going back year after year is an accomplishment for our team who has played together all year. Since Maurer has been hurt everyone has stepped up and taken us that step forward”.

The Fighting Irish are coached by Jarrod West and assistant Steve Petitto.

The Irish will face off with Parkersburg Catholic in game 1 in Charleston at 9:30a.m. on Wednesday, March 13, 2019.

The City of Clarksburg would like to wish the Notre Dame Fighting Irish Good Luck on their Journey to bringing a State Championship back to Clarksburg.
