Girls' hoops squads ready for tip-off

With fall fading into winter, basketball season has arrived, and Hendricks County girls’ squads hit the court for real this week.

BROWNSBURG

Brownsburg is coming off a 20-4, sectional championship season, but graduated seven seniors.

“We will be nervous at first as we do not have a great deal of varsity experience,” Brownsburg coach Amy Brauman said. “I am hopeful that as the season progresses, we will begin to settle down and play tough basketball.”

Aliyah Walker (7 points per game, 5.3 rebounds per game) is the lone returning starter.

“Aliyah is strong in the paint and is also able to drive to the basket,” Brauman said. “Even though she is only a sophomore, she returns with significant varsity experience.”

The Bulldogs have two returning letter-winners in Hannah Mingus and Hannah Linville. Zhane Roper saw varsity time last year, while Isabella Zoog and Ellie Reinhart step up from JV. Three freshmen – Reilly Olmstead, Devon Courtney and Rebecca Schrad – will see extensive minutes.

TRI-WEST

Tri-West went an impressive 16-6 last season, bowing out to regional finalist Indian Creek in its sectional opener. The Bruins will feature a different look with standout Lauren DeSutter gone to Franklin College.

“Team chemistry will be a major focus for us as players get used to playing together and adjusting to new roles,” Tri-West coach Brad Acton said. “With an overall inexperienced team, we are looking to improve every day and get better as the season progresses.”

Post-player Karen Jones is back after being Tri-West’s leading rebounder and second-leading scorer (14 ppg in second half of the season) last year. Katrina Headlee (8 ppg) returns at guard, as does Marisa Meyer (6 ppg), the Bruins’ lone senior. Madison Sprecher, Claire Johnson, Marita VanDyke, Lacey Meyer, Lexi Jobe and Olivia Benner will also see varsity action.
