    Bolte went on to Iowa State and and helped Iowa State to four NCAA Tournament appearances. She was a unanimous first-team all-Big 12 selection as a senior and finished her career as the Cyclones' career leader in free throw percentage (.879), third in 3-pointers (276) and sixth in scoring (1,639)."

    Re: Kelsey Bolte one of three being indcuted into IGHSAU Basketball Hall of Fame

    Kelsey elected to the IGHSAU Basketball Hall of Fame in her first year of eligibility

    "When you talk about greatness, uniqueness, first ballot Hall of Famer says a lot," Iowa State coach Bill Fennelly said. "When you look at what Kelsey has done, the impact she has made on our sport in our state is pretty special."

    "I remember when I checked in my freshman year, coach told me not to airball it," Kelsey said, laughing at the memory.

    In the first four Big 12 games of her career, Kelsey rang up totals of 23, 21, 20 and 20 points, the first freshman in league history to score at least 20 in her first four conference games.


    "She's my favorite senior that I ever played under," said Anna Prins, a sophomore that season and a senior now. "She was just really nice to us on and off the court. She did a great job leading us on the court and keeping us calm. She's just a great person."

    "NCAA rules limit Kelsey to administrative work such as arranging travel and setting up camps, so she can't work with the players. But if she ever wandered out to the Knapp Center court during a quiet time, picked up a ball and shot it, well, there's still a pretty good chance it would go in."

    We got two more on the team right now that deserve to make it someday.

    Congrats to Kelsey!

    She had amazing stats in high school! That does not always translate into an amazing college career. Her development as a player is impressive. She started out as shooter, and ended up as a go-to, do-anything player and team leader.

    Add her to the list of special role models that high school girls and ISU recruits can aspire to be like.
