Mavunga first Bulldog to be named McDonald's All-American

BROWNSBURG — Brownsburg senior Stephanie Mavunga’s McDonald’s order of a three-piece Chicken Selects, large fry, and large Hi-C has now gotten a lot more fulfilling.

Each time Mavunga that walks into the Golden Arches, she’ll be doing so as a McDonald’s All-American.

The North Carolina commit is one of 24 selected to the prestigious basketball game April 3 at the United Center in Chicago (6 p.m., ESPNU).

“I am just overwhelmed with joy,” Mavunga said. “It’s really a blessing to say the least. I’m really excited and I couldn’t have made it here without God, my teammates, my family, my friends, and my fans.”

Mavunga is the second Hendricks County resident to earn the national honor. Plainfield resident Kelly Faris played her high school ball at Heritage Christian and was named to the McDonald’s All-American team in 2009.

The 6-foot-4 forward is the first Bulldog to be selected to the team.

“This is a huge honor,” Brownsburg coach Amy Brauman said. “This is something that not very many kids get. It’s a huge honor for her and she’s worked really hard for it.”

Mavunga averaged team-highs of 23 points, 12.6 rebounds, and 3.8 blocks per game in 2013. She also became the Bulldogs’ career leading scorer and set the individual game scoring record with 44 against Plainfield.

Being selected as a McDonald’s All-American helps cement Mavunga’s name in the Brownsburg and Indiana history books that much more.

“It just kind of validates everything that she’s done for the season,” Brauman said. “We’ve always known that she’s a great player but she’s done a great job especially this year trusting more in her teammates and it’s allowed her to do more.”

Two of Mavunga’s future Tar Heel teammates also made the All-American team: Jessica Washington and her teammate on the East squad, Diamond DeShields.
