For most people, athletic careers end in high school, however, Shelby Mohler is one of the few who will continue playing sports into college after receiving a scholarship to play softball at Missouri Valley College.

Playing the sport since she was young, college softball has been a lifelong dream of Shelby’s. Mohler has worked diligently to make her dreams a reality in her four years as a softball player at Orcutt Academy. During her final high school season, she hopes to see the softball program grow as a whole. Shelby is excited for another season of building her skills, playing the sport she loves, and giving her team “as much love and leadership as I can.”

Prior to being offered the scholarship, Shelby attended many showcases as a sophomore and junior. She met her future coach at a tournament in Sacramento and later set up a visit to discuss a scholarship. Shelby recommends visiting the college you plan to attend to confirm its the right fit for you, just as she and her mom did.

When visiting Missouri Valley College , she says it “truly felt like home.” After experiencing the process of picking a college, Shelby wants students to know they should choose a college not based on the sports or money, but a place they’re confident they love because it will be home for the next 4 years.

Currently, Mohler plans on majoring in nursing and minoring in mathematics at Missouri Valley College. She is thrilled to grow as a person in college and to “pursue the career I had been waiting for my whole life.” Shelby Mohler will be missed at Orcutt Academy next year, but we are proud to watch her accomplish many wonderful things.
