A former Johnston High School star will go down in history.

Kate Nielsen had a season to remember at Simpson this year and for that, her jersey will be sent to the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame.

Nielsen’s #44 will hang alongside 99 other jerseys in Knoxville, Tennessee.  The hall honors the top 100 high school and college players each year.

Nielsen averaged 22 points and 9 rebounds for the Storm.

She was first team All-American, Academic All-American and Iowa Conference MVP.
