Hendricks County had just three of seven boys’ basketball teams finish with winning records this season, but two won sectional titles and 12 players earned spots on this year’s Hendricks County Flyer All-County Team.
Brownsburg finished with an impressive 21-3 record on its way to a county title and regional appearance. The Bulldogs received steady contributions from junior K.J. Walton, senior Trevor Lucas and junior Darrian Ringo.
Walton, whose Division I offers include Minnesota and Xavier, averaged 18.1 points and 3.7 rebounds, and had a season-best 31 points against Southport.
Lucas (12.4 points, 4.9 rebounds) and Ringo (10.6 points, 4.7 assists) were scoring threats both inside and out, and brought lots of intensity on the defensive end.
Junior Trevor Waite and senior Austin Musial were key in Tri-West’s 15-8 season that saw the Bruins win the Beech Grove sectional.
Waite scored 17.6 points per game and shot 83 percent from the foul line. He had a team season-high 29 points against Western Boone, and returns next year just 39 points shy of 1,000 for his career.
Musial went for 10.3 points and 6.8 rebounds, and was critical in the Bruins’ sectional victories.
While Danville bowed out against Tri-West in sectional play after beating the Bruins in the regular season, the Warriors had a solid 17-5 campaign that included a Sagamore Conference championship.
Danville was led by junior Luke Callahan, who scored 15 points and pulled down 7.5 rebounds per game. Callahan had the team’s single-game high of 26 points, and was a force in the paint defensively.
Warrior senior D.J. Shipley (10 points, 4.8 assists) battled his way back from two ACL surgeries, and was adept at finding the open shot and open man.
Led by senior Conner Funkhouser and sophomore Brandon Peters, Avon went 10-13 and had its biggest win of the season in the final week against Martinsville.
Funkhouser led the Orioles with 15.8 points and 7.1 rebounds, and had team season highs of 27 points and 18 boards against Westfield.
