In her sophomore year on the diamond received Best Defensive Player of the Year award while being named 2nd Team All-District as a pitcher.

Coach Yates on Brown: “There’s never a moment when I’ve question Shelby’s drive to improve her game. She didn’t come to college to be a pitcher, and still had several good outings last season. With spending more time in the bullpen this year, I believe she will be very good in the circle for us and she possesses the ability to be a great hitter as well.”
