It's rare a freshmen has a significant impact on a varsity high school basketball game, but our Loaf N' Jug - Aquafina Athlete Of The Week not only impacted the game, she decided it.
Manitou Springs frosh Shelby Megyeri hit the game winning shot against St. Mary's last weekend. With eight seconds left, the Mustangs grabbed the rebound, kicked it out to her, and she sank the three pointer to win it.
"Right when that free throw shot, I was like 'Get me the ball!' and she got me the ball, and it worked out," says Megyeri. "I had been shooting well that whole game. I dribbled over there and shot it, and it went in. My whole team stormed the court, and then my coach did, and then my two brothers did. It was a pretty cool experience."
Right now Shelby is dealing with Patella Tendinitis in her left knee, she hopes be back playing as soon as possible.
