"Shelby has practiced with our team pretty regularly this season, as they do not have the facilities to vault at their school," Jimmie women's track coach Jim Clark said. "She will likely compete in the pole vault and the sprints.

"I have been impressed with her willingness to drive here to practice and to work hard on the track. She seems to fit right in and gets along well with everyone. She will be a welcome addition to our team."

A 5-foot-4 guard, Rose averaged 3.5 points, 4 assists and 2.6 steals per game her senior season and was named the Bison's top defensive player.

"Shelby loves to play and compete, whether it is basketball, track or volleyball," Jimmie women's basketball coach Mark Wiest said. "She has put a lot of time into basketball throughout high school and has shown she has the desire to work very hard."

The daughter of Robert and Dawn Rose of Wimbledon, she plans to study biology and possibly pre-physical therapy at Jamestown College.
