Mt. Vernon’s Sydney Shelton gets bumped by Greenfield’s Madison Wise in the closing seconds of a 45-43 win for Mt. Vernon. Greenfield and Mt. Vernon faced off in the opening round of IHSAA Girls Basketball Sectionals at Mt. Vernon High School Wednesday, February 11, 2015.

Butler has secured a commitment from one of the area’s top girls basketball players.

Mt. Vernon’s Sydney Shelton, a 5-9 guard, posted on her Twitter account on Tuesday night: “So excited to announce that I will be playing basketball at Butler University.”

Shelton, Mt. Vernon’s all-time leading scorer, was previously committed to Kentucky. She was named as one of six core Indiana Junior All-Stars last season after averaging 22.5 points a game.

Shelton’s aunt, Julie Shelton, is a Butler assistant and is the former Mt. Vernon coach. Julie Shelton (the former Julie VonDielingen) scored more than 2,000 points in her playing career at Butler.

Butler was 14-16 last year in Kurt Godlevske’s first season as coach.
