2012 Jim Howe Sportsmanship Girl Award
In the beginning of October, Shelby was honored with the Jim Howe Sportsmanship Girl Award at the Annual USTA (Hawaii Pacific Section) Awards Banquet at the Ala Moana Hotel. The Jim Howe Award is given to one girl and one boy junior player each year who exemplifies admirable sportsmanship qualities both on and off the court.
That night, the banquet honored many individuals who have helped to spread the spirit of tennis throughout the islands. Click here to see view the 2012 Award Recipients. The USTA Hawaii Pacific Section has been very supportive throughout Shelby’s tennis career, and she would not be where she is today without its help.
