Highland Athletic department announces first bowling team players

FREEPORT�Highland Community College�s recent addition of a National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) sanctioned bowling team to its interscholastic sports offerings has already resulted in two student athletes signing letters of intent for the men�s team. funny halloween pictures

Kyler Jacobson (left) and William Nordman sign letters of intent for Highland Community College�s NJCAA Division III men�s bowling team on Wednesday, May 30 in the HCC Sports Center.

Incoming first-year students Kyler Jacobson, Freeport High School, and William Nordman, Oregon High School, are both former recipients of the Northern Illinois Bowling Proprietor Association (NIBPA) Foundation Eagle Excellence Award. During their high school careers, Eagle Excellence Award winners must compete for three years as a varsity team member, advance to the state finals, maintain a 3.0 grade point average and achieve all-conference status. funny pictures

Both student athletes announced their intent to attend HCC after learning of the officially-recognized collegiate bowling team. The team will be scheduled for up to 10 meets during the regular season. Players will also compete during the post-season against other two-year and four-year school programs at the United States Bowling Congress (USBC) National tournament. funny images

In his four years at Oregon High School, Nordman, also a varsity letter winner in golf and baseball, was bowling team captain and MVP as well as an Illinois High School Association (IHSA) all-conference team selection. He is a three-time IHSA Conference Tournament champion and one-time IHSA Conference MVP. He placed 38th overall at the 2012 IHSA State Finals. funny photos

Kyler, a three-year varsity bowler, had the highest average at Freeport High School last season and competed at the IHSA State Finals. He was also an IHSA All-Conference Team selection. Like Nordman, Kyler reconsidered his plans to attend a four-year university after the addition of a bowling program at HCC.

Both players will receive a $500 scholarship this fall from the NIBPA Foundation. NIBPA has pledged to award these scholarships each semester to bowlers who demonstrate athletic and academic excellence.
