She led her team in 9 kills between the two matches on Sunday, October 1st. As a Right Side hitter, it is a great feat to play this position let alone have the highest kill percentage. She also earned four assists and eight digs. She was consistent in serving and was notably the only player on the team to serve both matches with no errors. Not only did Shelby have a tremendous performance, but she also continues to maintain a resilient and infectious attitude on and off the court. Shelby is a true leader and an astounding student-athlete.
