Bulldogs’ seniors familiar to success

BROWNSBURG — More than half of the players on the Brownsburg girls’ basketball roster have been playing together since before high school.

Some started in middle school and some before that in elementary school. Certainity the familiarity has paid off as the seven Bulldog seniors prepare for the final run of their school-record success over the past four years.

“It certainly doesn’t hurt us,” Brownsburg coach Amy Brauman said. “I think after a while, they know what they can and can’t do. They’re pretty good about making up for someone else’s weakness.”

The current Brownsburg seniors have gone 73-17 in the past four years for an 81.1 winning percentage. They trail only the 1989-92 team (76-15, 83.5 winning percentage) and 1998-2001 team (77-17, 81.9 winning percentage) for the best four-year stretch in Bulldog history.

Stephanie Mavunga, Kayle Comer, Natalie Kroll, Margaret Oles, Lindsey Low, Mackenzie Trout, and Brooke Bronger are each important parts of Brownsburg’s four-year successful span.

“They are seven that you really don’t have to worry about,” Brauman said. “They are not going to get in trouble in school and they’re going to work hard in the weight room ... From a coaching standpoint, that’s what you dream of.”

During the last four years, the Bulldogs swept the Hendricks County Championship each season and won the 2010 Hall of Fame Classic at New Castle with victories over Jeffersonville and Evansville Memorial (the eventual Class 4A and 3A state champions).

The success of the past four seasons has coincided with Mavunga’s play during that span. The North Carolina recruit has been on varsity since her freshman season and broke the school’s all-time scoring record and single-game scoring record this season.

Brauman credits her team’s ability to not care about the attention and only concern themselves with the wins.
