The 6-1 forward from Spencer, Iowa, finished a solid Nebraska career ranked 14th all time on the NU scoring list with 1,096 points, while just missing the top 10 with 545 career rebounds.

Halsne earned honorable-mention All-Big Eight honors in 1989-90, when she enjoyed her best season by averaging 11.0 points and 5.8 rebounds per game. An excellent performer in the classroom as well, Halsne was a three-time first-team academic All-Big Eight selection (1988-89, 1989-90, 1990-91).

She posted a career high with 29 points in Nebraska's 83-80 loss at Kansas State on Jan. 21, 1989, while grabbing a career-high 11 rebounds in a 68-65 loss at Oklahoma on Jan. 25, 1989.

As a freshman, Halsne helped the Huskers to the Big Eight Conference title and the first NCAA Tournament appearance in school history. She scored six points and grabbed six rebounds in the Huskers' 100-82 loss at USC in the 1988 NCAA Tournament. Halsne set a freshman school record with a .560 field goal percentage (79-141) that was not broken until Charlie Rogers connected on 58.2 percent (78-134) of her shots as a freshman in 1996-97. Halsne's .529 career field goal percentage (423-799) ranks as the fourth-best mark in Husker history.

As a senior softball player in 1992, Halsne led the team with a .321 batting average and tied for the team lead with 20 RBIs, while producing the eighth-highest single-season assist total in school history with 142 in 1992. She lettered as a softball player in 1988 and 1992. She was also a two-time CoSIDA Academic All-American in softball, earning third-team honors as a designated player in 1991 before adding a third-team award at third base in 1992.

Halsne served as the head women's basketball coach at Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa, until 1999. She now lives in the Seattle, Wash., area.
