UW-Green Bay alumna, (Boyer) Rohde top AP coach

Winning state championships isn’t easy, but Green Bay Notre Dame girls basketball coach Sara (Boyer) Rohde sometimes makes it look that way.

Boyer is a member of Green Bay’s 1,000-point club, registering 1,115 points with the Phoenix throughout her career (2000-2003). In addition, Boyer finished third on Green Bay’s individual career record list with 160 three-point field goals made and fourth with 376 attempts. Boyer was an assistant coach for the Phoenix from 2004-06.

She has led the Tritons to four WIAA Division 2 titles in her 11 seasons, the most recent coming in a 68-54 win over Pewaukee on March 12 at the Resch Center in Ashwaubenon.

Perhaps this title was the most impressive yet.

Notre Dame entered the season as the defending state champion and with a target on its back, but a squad with just two seniors went 29-1 and finished on a 28-game winning streak.

The Tritons outscored opponents by an average of 34.6 points and won their six postseason games by an average of 30.6.

It made Rohde the choice for The Associated Press state coach of the year. It’s the second time she has received the award and the first since 2013.
