Top five sports stories from the 2012-13 prep sports season

(Continued)

Tri-West led 5-4 headed into the top of the seventh and a two-run homer by sophomore Claire Johnson broke the game open while breaking the Tigers’ spirit.

The state championship was the first for Tri-West in softball. The Bruins averaged over 10 runs per game throughout the year and five players — Johnson, Taylor Heath, Lizzie Meyer, Kaitlyn Settlemoir and Alyssa Clark — all hit above .450 on the season.

BROWNSBURG’S STEPHANIE MAVUNGA

In what was one of the slimmest margins of victory in recent years, Brownsburg’s Stephanie Mavunga took home the coveted honor of Indiana Miss Basketball during the winter sports season.

Mavunga, a 6-foot-4 forward, averaged 23 points, 12.7 rebounds and 3.8 blocks per game this season, shooting 62 percent from the field.  The North Carolina-bound forward also was named a McDonald’s All-American and the Gatorade Indiana Player of the Year while leading the Bulldogs to their first sectional title in 12 seasons.

MENTAL ATTITUDE AWARD WINNERS

With several county teams in the state finals of their respective sports, three athletes brought home very special honors to their schools.

Both Avon’s Kayla Springer (volleyball) and Brad Patz (Golf) along with Tri-West’s Alyssa Clark (softball) were honored with IHSAA Mental Attitude Awards in the fall and spring sports’ seasons.

These awards are traditionally given in recognition of an athlete’s performance both in their sport and in the classroom.  All three were instrumental in their team’s success throughout their season and postseason run, while also dominating in the classroom as one of the brightest students in their respective schools.
