“We are looking for Braythan to come in and be a three-point threat,” said Evangel head coach Leon Neal. “She knows how to work hard and carry a team with her scoring. Braythan is from a program that has had a great deal of success getting to State and she will bring that same hard working mentality to our women’s basketball program as well.”
Helms was a second team All-State performer in Class 3 in the MSHSAA coaches voting and was a first team all-state selection by the Missouri State Coaches Association. She was also an all-conference and all-district performer. She is a member of the National Honor Society and the National BETA club.
