Heim selected as NCCAA All-American

WINONA LAKE, Ind. – Sam Heim wrapped up her sterling career for Grace’s softball team as an All-American.

Heim was selected as a First Team NCCAA All-American, Grace’s first All-American since Hannah Herbster in 2017.

Heim enjoyed a dominant season at the plate. She hit .439 for the season, ranking in the top 15 of the NAIA in both hits and triples. Her eight triples this season ranked fourth in the NAIA.

Heim led Grace in at-bats (173), runs (31), hits (76) and stolen bases (18). She wraps up her career with 204 hits, sixth-most in team history. Additionally her .394 career batting average places her seventh all-time for Grace and her 67 stolen bases ranks third.

Heim was also Grace’s most-used pitcher. She posted a 4.24 ERA in 107 1/3 innings of work, racking up 76 strikeouts to go along with six complete games.

In the classroom, Grace had six members earn Scholar-Athlete status. Emily Bobb, Hannah Harless, Erin Lawhon, Olivia Scarbrough, Morgan Tapscott and Jess Vandenboom each earned Scholar-Athlete recognition from the NCCAA or NAIA.
