A teammate and friend of Shelby's died Friday, Oct.16,2009 at 5:25 a.m., after losing her 10 month battle with Ewing's Sarcoma, a cancer that started in her upper inner thigh. Her name was Megan McNeal and she was the sweetest girl and one hell of a ball player. There was no drama with this teenager who just turned 14 last month, but always a bright smile. The Wednesday prior to her passing, she told her parents, Patti and Tim that she was ready for her angel wings so that she could go to heaven. It all happened so fast, it's heartbreaking. She handled her battle with grace and dignity...her true spirit. She will be forever missed. Please keep Megan and her family in your prayers. (Megan is in the center of this team picture...pretty fitting I think).
