Shelbyville won the undisputed Okaw Valley Conference Championship and were the Tuscola Regional Champions. They finished the season in the sectional title game. Shelby had four 1st Team OVC players, two unanimous, and a fifth Honorable Mention.

Shelbyville Slugger Luke Hatfield tied the SHS season record for the most home runs, tying Will Clark with 12. Hatfield, a unanimous 1st Team OVC pick, set a SHS record with 38 career home runs.
