UNCASVILLE — When Notre Dame-Fairfield senior forward Kayla Tilus left the game in the second quarter with a reaggravation of a knee injury she suffered in the state semifinals, Notre Dame was trailing Newington and the season was hanging in the balance.
Rather than retreat without the LIU-bound Tilus, Notre Dame’s other seniors — Aizhanique Mayo, Taylor Gibbs and Sarah Macary — stepped up to lead the Lancers (the third seed but ranked No. 1 in the GameTimeCT poll) to their first ever state title 60-45 over No. 1 seed Newington in the CIAC Class L championship.
