Kaylee Bennett meant a lot to the Brownstown Central High School girls basketball program not only this year, but for her career, coach Karla Rieckers said.

Bennett topped off her senior season by being named the team’s most valuable player and receiving several other honors during the team’s awards program Thursday night in the school cafeteria.

“I wanted her to be a leader,” Rieckers said of Bennett. “She went through some struggles early in the year, but she came on strong. Kaylee has done great things in her career at Brownstown Central. I’m proud of her efforts.”

Bennett topped the Braves in scoring with 189 points in 19 games. Her high-point games were 17 against Salem and 16 against Scottsburg, and she scored in double-figures eight other times.

Bennett also led in rebounds with 161. She ranks fourth on the career rebounds list with 646, and she ranks 13th on the career scoring list with 736 points.
