Braves’ Benter nominated for player of the week

Brownstown Central’s Jack Benter was a boys District 3 nominee for top player of the week as the Indiana High School Athletic Association moved through sectional play last weekend and on to regional play.

Benter’s highlight performance was a 36-point night versus Northview as the Braves’ season ended in the Owen Valley Sectional final by two points.

The Indiana Basketball Coaches Association and Franciscan Health sponsor the player of the week awards.

Brownstown finished 14-7 on the season. The only one of five Jackson County high schools still playing is Trinity Lutheran, which advanced to the Loogootee Regional starting this Saturday.
