BROWNSBURG, Ind. (WISH) - "I'm really working to be a leader both on the court and off the court."
Brownsburg High super senior basketball star Stephanie Mavunga is succeeding. The Bulldog leads her basketball team in every category, including breaking the scoring mark that stood since 1977.
"She has broken almost every record that we have, some of the records we have go back to the 70's and so she's done a great job,"said her coach Amy Brauman.
A job that extends off the court. Mavunga has been teaching Sunday school at her church for years, something she loves. Being a role model away from athletics is important, even though the 6'4 senior has a full ride scholarship to play ball. She's involved with student council, future families and more.
"I've been involved with helping the homeless, feeding the homeless via church,” said Mavunga. “I teach the kids at church and I'm involved in track and field, so just doing a lot of things, so it's not just basketball. So people don’t say Stephanie Mavunga the basketball player. Oh she does so much more, I don't want to be known as just a basketball player."
When sports is over, she has her eye on being a lawyer. Like her coach, she's got the description.
“Funny, happy, motivated, generous, ball of joy."
Her coach thinks she’ll follow in her footsteps and become a lawyer. "I told her she needs to do something she can communicate with. She's a good communicator, I think people listen to her."
As for what's next? Mavunga has a real shot at becoming Indiana's Miss Basketball. After that, she's on to North Carolina, where with her leadership skills, she hopes to lead the Tar Heels to the National Championship.
