Minneapolis’ Shelby Davidson – Athlete Spotlight Presented By American Family Insurance, Scott Ausherman

By Hayden Swope

Shelby Davidson, a volleyball player at Minneapolis High School, was a first team all-league selection, with over 400 kills last season. This year, Davidson and the Lions are hoping to make a deep run in the postseason. 

“My high school team is off to a 10-4 start, so we are working to continue to improve match to match and finish with a winning record,” Davidson said. “We were able to win one substate game last year, so we are looking to build on that this season. Our league is solid from top to bottom, and we play in some difficult tournaments, so we should be prepared to be competitive in our substate. My goal for my stats this season is to reach 1,000 kills.”

Hoping to play college volleyball, Davidson worked and trained over the offseason to strengthen her skills. 

“I was busy preparing this summer through final college visits, camps, and showcases,” Davidson said. “I play in a variety of court sizes, so I wanted to continue to improve my jump serve while maintaining a solid set serve for the smaller courts.”

Outside of volleyball, you can find Davidson busy and active all around her school. 

“I also play softball, earning all-league for three years,” Davidson said. “I am involved in choir, show choir, musicals, plays, and drama club, book club, chess club, and National Honor Society. I have been in Stuco for three years serving as co-president this year. I attend FCA and Girl’s Group.”

Davidson plans to continue her athletic and academic career at the next level. 

“I plan to sign for college volleyball soon and will major in Business or Communications,” Davidson said. “I would like to be a small business owner or a manager of a company.”
