Brownsburg's superb season ended

The Brownsburg girls’ basketball team’s most successful season in 12 years came to an end Saturday.

A 20-4 record and sectional championship should help coat the Bulldogs’ 57-46 loss to the Roncalli Rebels in the Decatur Central regional.

The 1-2 punch of Purdue-bound Bridget Perry and freshman Lindsey Corsaro provided too much for Brownsburg to handle.

“We had a little difficulty defending them,” Brownsburg coach Amy Brauman said. “They are both good 3-point shooters and can attack the basket.”

Neither team was able to muster much offense in the second quarter as the Bulldogs outscored the Rebels 4-2 and led 16-14.

In the second half, Roncalli outscored Brownsburg 43-30.

“It was a close game, there was just a run that they made that we couldn’t respond to,” Brauman said. “The girls played as hard as they could. We just came upon a team that could defend us and we haven’t quite encountered shooters like that in a long time.”

While the regional was the end of the road for Brownsburg’s season, they have much to look back on and celebrate.

The Bulldogs won their first sectional in 12 years and became the second team in Hendricks County history to win four straight county championships.

“Overall, the girls were very sad that it has come to an end,” Brauman said. “Primarily because they enjoy spending time together and did such a great job winning sectionals. On the other hand, they are keeping it in perspective that they were able to do what no one has done for Brownsburg in the last 12 years and that is win a sectional.”

After the Bulldogs were eliminated the past three postseasons by the Giants, Brownsburg earned retribution and won 40-39 in the sectional semifinal.

Brauman’s favorite memory of her sixth year coaching at Brownsburg and second 20-win season is that dramatic victory.
