Heidi Warmelink, formally committed to attend Cornerstone University beginning in the fall of 2010. She made this official by signing her letter of intent on June 11, 2008. Cornerstone Head Coach Jim Farrell is excited to welcome Heidi onto the team not only because of her softball abilities, leadership, and priorities, but most importantly how her desire to deepen her relationship with Jesus Christ is demonstrated in her life.
The current Wayland-Union Junior has put together an impressive career in her two years. She broke seven school records her freshman year including pitching appearances (45), wins (40), innings pitched (260), strike outs (272), shutouts (20) no-hitters (7), and assists (356). When she is not pitching, she is playing shortstop. She is an offensive weapon as well with a batting average above .400 both years and an on-base percentage above .550 both years.
Warmelink was chosen as a team captain her sophomore year. Other honors she has received are Team Rookie of the Year (2007), All Conference (2007, 2008), All District (2007, 2008), All County (2007, 2008), All Region (2007, 2008), All State (2007), and Team MVP (2008).
This past summer, Heidi played for the Grand Rapids' Blaze 16U team which had great success, including a 3rd place finish at Compuware and 2nd at NSA "A" States. Heidi rotated each game between pitching and shortstop for this team.
In talking about the addition of Warmelink to the team, Farrell said, "We are thrilled to have a player of Heidi's caliber come into our program and are very excited about her contribution to us both on and off the field as well as the impact that she will have on our campus."
