Bulldogs, Quakers advance, Avon bows out

TERRE HAUTE — Two Hendricks County teams advanced and one saw its season end in Wednesday’s opening round of the Class 4A Terre Haute North girls’ basketball sectional.

Behind 18 points from Aliyah Walker and 11 by Reilly Olmstead, Brownsburg topped rival Avon 55-36.

In a game with 49 fouls, and with Plainfield shooting 15 of 31 at the free throw line, the Quakers topped Terre Haute South 64-54.

That sets up the third meeting between Plainfield (14-6) and Brownsburg (14-8) this season. The Quakers topped the Bulldogs 60-56 in December and 59-58 in the title game of the county tournament.

Up just 5-4 in Wednesday’s opener, Brownsburg took over after entering the bonus with four minutes left in the first quarter. From that point, the Bulldogs finished the period on a 13-3 streak and outscored the Orioles by eight in the second quarter for a 35-16 halftime lead.

Avon (1-19) forced seven turnovers in the third quarter as the Orioles trimmed four points off their sizable deficit, but couldn’t get closer than 14 in the final period.

Lexi Short had 15 points for Avon, while Megan Hunt finished with 11.

Hannah Mingus (12) and Walker (11) pulled down double-digit rebounds for Brownsburg.

In the nightcap, Plainfield had 11 fouls and 10 turnovers in the first half, but a 3-pointer at the buzzer by Kayla Casteel gave the Quakers a 26-25 halftime lead.

At 45-45 in the fourth quarter, Plainfield reeled off nine straight points to take control. South cut it to six with a minute remaining, but the Quakers scored the final four points of the contest to advance.

Casteel led Plainfield with 15 points, while Mackenzie Reeder finished with 13 points and 18 rebounds. Kyndall Spears (10) also scored in double figures.

Lauren Hambrock led South with 21 points.

Plainfield and Brownsburg will meet at 7:30 p.m. on Friday.
