Class of 2019 recruit Noelani Helm has committed to the University of Portland Pilots’ women’s volleyball program. A 5’10” setter and right side, Helm could be a strong weapon in a 6-2 system or just be used as a facilitator for the offense.
A junior at Walla Walla High School in Washington, Helm helped her school to a 15-7 finish this past season. According to her MaxPreps profile, Helm logged 189 assists (3.5 per set), 160 digs (3.0 per set), 129 kills (2.4 per set) on a .198 hitting percentage and 36 aces (0.7 per set).
On the club side of things, Helm plays with Central Region United. She owns a 7’7″ standing reach, a 9’4″ block touch and a 9’8″ approach jump.
Last season, Portland finished 15-15 with a 6-12 record in the West Coast Conference. The 2017 roster featured two setters – a freshman and sophomore – who will be scheduled to be a junior and senior come Helm’s first season in the fall of 2019.
