- "She's incredible," Valley Christian coach Scott Babinat said. "We put our best defender on her and said, 'Dig in and make everything difficult.' Everything she got she obviously earned. She's an amazing player." (Contra Costa Times)
- Indefatigable, the sophomore set up plays, initiated fast breaks, shot sharply behind the arc, took it to the net and rarely missed a free throw; at times single-handedly turning games around and always with a smile on her face. The story was not lost on the San Francisco Examiner, who named Mehta, with her 24 points, 7.4 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game, All-City Girls’ Basketball Player of the Year (April 4, 2013). (La Lettre)
- “She’s one of the most underrated guards in The City and she can put a team on her back ...mean, go ahead, try to stop her,” (San Francisco Examiner)
- "She can split defenders and take the ball to the rack, stop on a dime and drain a 15-foot jumper, or use her step-back move to swish a three. Shay is so much fun to watch and coach, and best of all she is humble, hungry and motivated to get better." (SF Gate)
- End of Trail report, Nor Cal Report: Many standouts, but the one player who really jumped out at me who showed very well and was better than I had expected was Shayna Mehta, a 2015 at International. She put on a show at the Bentley Showdown last year, and I think her quickness and shooting will translate well to the college level. (Clay Kallam, NorCal Preps)
- “She’s a gamer,” Murphy said of Mehta (…) she can put a team on her back (...) She’s averaging 29 points a game, she’s shooting 50 percent from the field, three-point percentage is 43.“ (San Fran Preps)
- The Jaguars figure to be the favorite to win the Bay Counties League West title in their first year in the league, mostly due to the return of sophomore phenom Shayna Mehta. (San Fran Preps)
- “I’ve been coaching Shayna since she was in sixth grade,” said International head coach Charlene Murphy. “She’s one of the top five guards in San Francisco, hands down, and we’re very lucky to have her.” (San Fran Preps)
