Shrewsberry Added To Athletic Staff

Wabash College Athletic Director Vernon Mummert has announced the hiring of Micah Shrewsberry as assistant basketball coach and athletic department minority recruitment coordinator. He will begin his duties on July 1.

Shrewsberry is a 1999 graduate of Hanover College in physical education and communication, where he was a three-year starter for the Panthers' basketball team at point guard. He led the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference in free throw shooting in the 1998-99 season (83.3%) and in assists with a 4.4 assists-per-game average. Shrewsberry completed his career at Hanover averaging 5.3 points per game and 3.4 assists per game. He was an honorable mention All-Conference player in 1999.

Shrewsberry spent the 1999-2000 season as a graduate assistant coach at the University of Indianapolis. He was responsible for recruiting for the Greyhounds, as well as scouting and film breakdown of opponents. He also coordinated the weight and conditioning program for the basketball team.

"We are excited to bring someone of Micah's abilities to Wabash College," said Mummert. "He brings not only a strong knowledge of the game of basketball to the College, but the ability that he has already shown in recruitment at the University of Indianapolis will be a great addition to our staff."

Shrewsberry has worked with the Purdue University basketball camps in 1998 and 1999 as a student assistant, and was an intern with the National Institute for Fitness and Sports in 1998 with the Nike High School All-American Camp.

"Having played against Wabash College, I understand the traditions that surround almost every event," said Shrewsberry. "I was always impressed by the support shown by the students and the faculty and staff of the College, and I look forward to being a part of that in the upcoming year."

Shrewsberry is the son of William and Brenda Shrewsberry of Indianapolis. His father is the city of Indianpolis deputy mayor for public policy and was a city councilman in Jeffersonville, Indiana, prior to moving to Indianapolis to work for Governor Evan Bayh.
