Flyer names all-county girls' basketball team

Two girls’ basketball players end their careers with four straight appearances on the Hendricks County Flyer’s All-County team.

Brownsburg’s Stephanie Mavunga and Tri-West’s Lauren DeSutter made an impact for their respective programs the moment they stepped on the court their freshman seasons.

Mavunga made the All-County first-team all four years and DeSutter was first-team all but her freshman year when she was selected to the second-team.

Over the past four seasons, Brownsburg’s record is 76-18 and Tri-West’s is 68-21. Mavunga and DeSutter are mostly responsible for those two superb records and it shows.

This season Mavunga, the county’s second-ever McDonald’s All-American, led the way for the Bulldogs’ first sectional championship in 12 years and a 20-4 record.

The North Carolina bound recruit averaged county highs of 23 points, 12.7 rebounds, and 3.8 blocks per game. Mavunga also shot 62.5 percent from the field and made 9 of 10 3-pointers on the season.

She also became Brownsburg’s all-time leading scorer and set a school-record for most points scored in game with 44 against Plainfield.

In 2012-13, DeSutter averaged 22.3 points, 5.3 steals and 3.5 assists per game. She graduates from Tri-West with quite a legacy.

She won two sectional titles and just missed the Bruins’ career-points record. The Franklin College bound guard did set the Tri-West single season scoring record with 490 points this season. She also owns Bruins records for career steals (249) and free throw percentage (80.9).

Cascade senior Brandyce Sallee made the All-County team for the third straight season. She averaged 17.4 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 4.1 steals per game to lead the Cadets to a 14-8 record this season.

The do-it-all player became Cascade’s all-time leading scorer in late January with 18 points scored against Zionsville.

Sallee is headed to Butler next year to play softball, but the dynamic athlete showed her versatility in playing volleyball and basketball at a high level.
