QUINCY, IL (WGEM) -- Thursday night turned out to be extra special for the Quincy Notre Dame girls basketball team.

Not only did the Lady Raiders win their fourth straight regional championship, they also got a little revenge for their head coach Eric Orne, who six years ago lost to former Quincy High head coach and now Springfield Southeast skipper Sandi Devoe in the post-season

QND scored 90 points en route to a 26 point victory and they've now won 48 straight games dating back to last season.

"It's always something special," Orne told WGEM Sports.

"There were times in my coaching career when we weren't always winning a regional, so we'll take em'."

The Lady Raiders opened the game on a furious run, and never looked back scoring 57 points in the first half alone.

"We did play very hard," said senior forward Jordan Frericks.

"We came out strong and had a lot of energy and wee were just ready to go, but I think we still have a lot in us."

"Obviously being 3A this year and playing a ranked team to win a regional gave us a lot of good feelings after the game," added Orne.

"We know we've got another opponent and we've got to start working here today. "

Two games down, and four to go in the Lady Raiders quest to three peat as state champions.

Next up, a trip to Mount Zion to face Chatham-Glenwood in Monday's sectional semifinals with tip-off scheduled for 6 o'clock.

The teams met exactly a month ago with QND winning by 11 points.
