Brownsburg's superb season ended

(Continued)

“Getting down eight points and having the resilience to come back and win,” she said.

Until Saturday’s game, the Bulldogs were undefeated in 2013. After suffering a 51-45 defeat to Mooresville on Dec. 27, Brownsburg rattled off 13 straight wins by an average of 15.5 points per game.

“It was a lot of fun,” Brauman said of the Bulldogs’ season. “It certainly takes a lot of work to get a bunch of girls to play together as a team. They bought into that, they knew what their roles were.”

In the whirlwind of certain situations, people are not able to soak in the moment and truly register what they accomplished. Brauman believes the Bulldogs’ achievements have not fully set in yet for her team.

“Once you win a sectional, you’re thrilled that you won it, but you’re looking forward to the regional at that point in time,” she said. “Once the sting of losing in regionals wears off, I think that they’ll be able to look back and realize what they accomplished this season.”

North Carolina recruit Stephanie Mavunga averaged team-highs of 23 points, 12.6 rebounds, and 3.8 blocks per game this season. The 6-foot-4 senior also became the first McDonald’s All-American in Brownsburg history.

Mavunga was the leader of the seven Bulldogs seniors and ends her time at Brownsburg with Natalie Kroll, Margaret Oles, Kayle Comer, Lindsey Low, Mackenzie Trout, and Brooke Bronger.

‘That’s one of the saddest things for the coaches is that once the players leave on that final game, it’s one of those things where you’re never going to have them in that same circumstance again,” Brauman said. “We’re all going to miss them. They were all hard workers and just great kids.”

Those seven seniors left their mark on the Brownsburg program as they tied for the second most successful four-year span in school history. In the past four seasons, the Bulldogs have gone 76-18 for a winning percentage of 80.9.
