    Kevin Meyer wasn't worried about the transition from assistant to head coach of the Quincy Notre Dame girls basketball program. Spending the last four seasons with Eric Orne prepared him and made the change easier. "We were like co-coaches," Meyer said. "At the end of the day, it was still his program but he let me do a lot of things and gave me a lot of responsibility." It's put the players at ease, too, ahead of Saturday's home opener against Springfield Sacred Heart-Griffin.
