BRILLION – Brillion’s Sara Braun became the fourth Brillion girls’ player in history to hit the 1,000-point career milestone last Tuesday night against Sheboygan Falls.
“It was a big accomplishment getting it,” Braun says. “It was sweet.”
The senior has continued to improve as her career’s gone along. This season, she’s had her highest shooting percentage. Braun is shooting 46.8%, a five percent improvement over last year.
“She’s worked pretty hard through her four years; she’s been a four-year varsity player,” Head Coach Jeff Capelle said. “She’s worked at her game a lot. She’s spent time on her shooting, her one-on-one moves with the dribble. She’s gotten better at posting up and playing with her back toward the basket.”
Braun, last season’s Eastern Wisconsin Conference Player of the Year, can score can score from inside or outside. She’s averaged double digits in each of the last three seasons. This season has been her highest with 16.4 points per game.
Braun admitted that the achievement means even more because so few in the school’s history have passed the mark. She joined Mary Berghuis (1,803 points; 1980-1984), Kylie Moxley (1,199; 2008-2012) and Amanda Popp (1,091; 1999-2003).
