I’M DAN SHADWELL… AND I’M CARINA CORRALL. OVER THE WEEKEND WE REPORTED THAT AN ATASCADERO TEEN WAS KILLED IN A CAR ACCIDENT — 17-YEAR-OLD SHELBY SUDBRINK. SHE WAS CO- CAPTAIN OF THE TEMPLETON HIGH BASKETBALL TEAM AND TODAY THE EAGLES PLAYED THEIR FIRST GAME WITHOUT HER. KSBY SPORTS REPORTER DEREK OPINA WAS THERE… AND JOINS US LIVE NOW FROM THE GYM. DEREK? Yeah Dan and Carina, it was definitely an emotional scene here. This was the highest attended game of the year I’m told …. it was the power of a community coming together for a basketball team. IT WAS CLEAR FROM THE GET GO THAT SHELBY WAS AT THE BASKETBALL GAME IN SPIRIT. HER TEAMMATES WORE BLUE SHIRTS WITH HER NUMBER 12 ON THE BACK. AND THE COMMUNITY SUPPORTED THE TEAM BY ALSO WEARING BLUE….AS THEY WATCHED THE LADY EAGLES GET READY TO PLAY IN THE BIGGEST GAME OF THEIR LIVES. SOT COACH There’s no playbook for this. We got together as a team last night. A Tragic accident. We just try to focus on the positives and positive memory of Shelby and go forward. BUT THE BIGGEST HONOR THE TEAM PROVIDED FOR SHELBY CAME IN THE OPENING MINUTES. THE EAGLES MADE SURE THAT THEIR CAPTAIN WOULD BE A STARTER. THEY BEGAN THE GAME WITH ONLY FOUR PLAYERS ….. THE 5TH SPOT OCCUPIED BY SHELBY. SOT Player: We just wanted to feel her again. Just have her with us on the court. Four people and her. It was for her. BE A STARTER. THEY BEGAN THE GAME WITH ONLY FOUR PLAYERS ….. THE 5TH SPOT OCCUPIED BY SHELBY. SOT Player: We just wanted to feel her again. Just have her with us on the court. Four people and her. It was for her. SOT COACH: She’s been a starter since her Junior season. She was one of our captain’s. That was the team’s idea. I was real proud of them for wanting to do that. PERHAPS THE MOST EMOTIONAL MOMENT OF THE GAME FOR SHELBY’S CO- CAPTAIN, ANNIE ELTERMAN. SHE HIT THE FIRST SHOT OF THE GAME, THEN QUICKLY POINTED TO THE SKY…. THANKING SHELBY FOR THE ASSIST. SOT PLAYER: It meant a lot. The beginning of this game I was like, I’m going to shoot this shot for her and I’m going to point to the sky because it’s what she’d want. I knew she was looking down watching me shoot that. So I was like this is for you. If she was out there, she’d do the exact same thing. she’d shoot the first shot. So I wanted to do it for her. IN THE END …. THE EAGLES CAME AWAY WITH THE WIN OVER SANTA MARIA HIGH. BUT IN THE BIGGER PICTURE …. NO ONE COULD SAY ANYONE LOST ON A NIGHT LIKE THIS. Her sister Kiley was the honorary team captain … and even wore the number 12. THANKS DEREK. THE SUDBRINK FAMILY IS STILL TAKING DONATIONS FOR SHELBY’S MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP.
