County girls ready to hit the court


“I think we have a group of kids that work very hard. I think what it will come down to is if we can put points up on the board. We’ll learn to defend, we’ll learn to rebound. I don’t know we are there yet. The key will be if we can put the ball in the hoop and where’s our scoring to come from.”



The one-two punch of seniors Stephanie Mavunga and Kayle Comer provide a formidable duo that have the Brownsburg Bulldogs ranked No. 3 in Class 4A as they enter the 2012 season.

North Carolina commit Mavunga led the Bulldogs in scoring (21.6), rebounds (12.4), blocks (5.14) and steals (2.43) in 2011 and should be a top contender for Indiana Miss Basketball in 2012.

“She’s a great player and we’re looking for leadership on the court and off the court this year from her,” said Brownsburg coach Amy Brauman, whose squad went 18-3 last year. “Now that she’s committed to North Carolina it should make things easier because you don’t have to worry about the college aspect. But she’s obviously a great player and the best player to have gone through Brownsburg High School.”

Comer is no slouch either as she provides a strong perimeter threat for the Bulldogs. She averaged 8.5 points and 32 percent shooting on three pointers in 2011.

“Kayle is a great outside shooter, she’s also been a good leader during the summer,” Brauman said. “We have some players who are able to penetrate and kick it back out to her and that’s definitely where she likes to shoot it from. We are expecting her and Stephanie to really step up for us.”

Brauman also expects junior guard Hannah Mingus, who was out most of last year with a broken foot, to be a main contributor and be the only non-senior to start this season. Seniors Lindsey Low and Mackenzie Trout will round out the starting five for the Bulldogs.
