Helms, a freshman from Moline, earned All-Iowa Conference honors in both singles and doubles competition, an honor matched by doubles partner Elise Allen. They were among four Norse players voted all-conference.

At the Iowa Conference Individual Tournament, Allen and Helms advanced to the semifinals of the Flight A doubles bracket before being eliminated by Michelle Schupbach and Tai Lucero of Coe, 8-6. The duo tallied a 7-3 record this fall.

In singles, Helms was 11-3, playing matches at the No. 2, No. 4 and No. 5 positions. She won her opening match in the Iowa Conference Individual Tournament, but fell to a teammate in the round of 16.

Luther completed the 2012 Iowa Conference schedule with a record of 6-1, 10-1 overall. Luther's only loss of the fall schedule was to Iowa Conference champions Coe.
