Team Momentum coaches gathered Sunday, September 22nd to honor the memory of our shinning star Shelby Meyer. Shelby, who played for Team Momentum from 14s through her 18s season, was a gift to our club and this program. Shelby was the epitome of what Team Momentum was looking for: an awesome person as well as an all-around athlete of the game. Shelby most recently gained praise in her back row dominance, but we remember the days of Shelby also smashing the ball at the net.
Shelby’s team soon became family, and these girls remained inseparable even through choosing different universities. Team Momentum has been so proud of Shelby’s achievements in school and volleyball over the years. Shelby was a state champion at St. Pius, and a Nationally ranked defender at Mineral Area College. Shelby’s Team Momentum teams won tournaments earning their way to both USAV and AAU Nationals. There is a reason Shelby’s teams were successful as she was an anchor for both her team mates and coaches.
Shelby will be honored and remembered by our club this year and all the years ahead. Thursday there will be a visitation for the Meyer family at Our Lady Catholic Church – Festus from 4:00pm – 9:00pm and the Mass will be held Friday, September 27th at 10:00am.
Trish, Paul, Sammi and Summer are all in our thoughts and prayers.
