• Brownsburg’s Mavunga returns home with gold medal

    June 22, 2011 No comments

    Most high school students use the summer break to go on vacation or simply to relax and enjoy a lazy summer. The same can’t be said for Brownsburg’s Stephanie Mavunga.

    Mavunga was selected as a member of the USA Basketball Women’s U16 National Team that traveled to Merida, Mexico to play in the 2011 FIBA Americas Under 16 tournament last week. USA beat Brazil 73-40 in the championship game on Saturday to claim the gold medal for America.

    Mavunga is the second Bulldog to win a gold medal in basketball in recent years. Current Utah Jazz guard/forward Gordon Hayward brought home the gold after winning the FIBA Under 19 World Championship in 2009.
