On Jan. 24 at the UNI vs. Illinois State basketball game, Shelby DeSotel (12) was recognized as the Lincoln Saving Bank and Learfield Sports Special Olympics Athlete.

“It was quite an honor,” Connie DeSotel, Shelby’s mom, said. “She had a huge smile on her face the entire time.”

DeSotel was honored with this award at center court during halftime because of her accomplishments in Special Olympics.

“Our family is so proud of Shelby and all the Special Olympians who give it their all every day,” Connie said.

At the UNI vs. Illinois basketball game, DeSotel posed for a picture with the UNI mascot.
