MURDOCK – Carter Bornemeier has written many successful lines on his baseball resume with his work ethic and dedication to the game.
He will have a chance to continue penning positive moments on the basepaths for Des Moines Area Community College.
Bornemeier signed a letter of intent Nov. 2 to play baseball for the Bears. Bornemeier has been a multi-year starter for Elmwood-Murdock/Nehawka’s American Legion program and has earned many hitting and fielding accolades. The E-M senior said DMACC would provide him an opportunity to fine-tune all of the skills in his baseball toolbox.
“I signed with DMACC because of the great family atmosphere and the way the players work on their physical attributes on getting to the next level,” Bornemeier said. “My goal is to get to the next level and I feel like DMACC can help myself and other players get there.”
Bornemeier was an All-Southeastern Nebraska Baseball Conference selection this past summer for both the E-M/N Senior Legion and Junior Legion programs. He was the starting shortstop for both squads and delivered dozens of hits during the summer.
Bornemeier earned All-SENBC recognition at the Junior Legion level in both 2016 and 2017. He was an All-SENBC honorable mention selection during his 2017 Senior Legion campaign.
Bornemeier said the competitive nature of baseball has helped him gain self-confidence in all aspects of his life. He was a member of this year’s Elmwood-Murdock Homecoming Court and has been involved in both basketball and track and field. He has played in multiple state basketball tournaments during his career. He also secured a pair of state track and field medals this past spring.
DMACC is a member of the Iowa Community College Athletic Conference. The Bears finished 28-28 this past spring. The team advanced to the championship game of the National Junior College Athletic Association Region IX Baseball Tournament.
