Congratulations, Jalyn Helstad!
Posted on 03/29/2019
Jalyn Helstad, a Senior on the Girl's Varisty Basketball team, was named to the 2nd Team All State Class A basketball team. She is the first player in years to be recognized from Williston High School. 

This past season was her 3rd year playing varsity ball for Coaches, Axelson and Lysne. Jalyn's goal was to be recognized as All WDA, so to be All State was an absolute honor and surprise.

Jalyn would like to recognize the impactful coaches throughout her basketball career this far: Kyle Helstad (her dad), Mitch Fearing, Matt Leibel, Karen Ashworth, Brent Lysne, and Luann Axelson. She gives them all the credit for her hard work, ability and dedication. 

She plans to attend Jamestown University to study teaching or nursing. She plans to play ball for them too. Along with her success on the court, Jalyn has maintained above a 4.0 GPA. 

Congratulations to Jalyn Helstad for her hard work, determination, and achievements in basketball and in the classroom! This accomplishment is very well-deserved. WHS is proud to have her as a Williston Coyote!
