Forest City, Iowa – Nicholas Heimerman, a two-time Minnesota high school all-conference team bowler from Faribault, has signed with the men’s bowling team at Waldorf College.
“I’m excited about joining the team. Everyone at Waldorf is friendly, and I look forward to my collegiate career and working with [headcoach] Marilyn,” said Heimerman.
“Nick’s sportsmanship on and the off the lanes was a huge factor in recruitment,” said Waldorf bowling head coach Marilyn Schachel. “He has great ball speed and accuracy in his game, which is a necessary factor in the development of college lanes play. We are thrilled that he is going to be part of the Warrior team this coming fall.”
Heimerman has been bowling strikes from the start. The same year he joined Faribault’s Youth League, he was the 2003-2004 Minnesota State USBC Youth Championship runner-up in the singles event. In 2010, he was singles state champion at the contest, where he bowled a career-high series of 764. In 2010 and 2012, he won first place in Faribault’s Junior/Adult League, and in 2011, Heimerman was runner-up at the Minnesota USBC Pepsi Youth Championships, where he earned a junior gold spot.
As part of the Faribault-Waseca-Medford high school team, the accolades continued. For the 2011 season, the team was regular season champions, conference tournament runner-up, and took third place at the all-conference tournament. Heimerman was named most outstanding player and earned all-conference team and first team all-state honors. Regular season champions again this year, the team was runner-up at the state tournament, and Heimerman earned a spot on the all-conference team a second time.
While bowling for the Waldorf Warriors, Heimerman will pursue a communications degree.
