Kimball Area High School 2012-graduate Erin Dingmann continues to score under par on the golf course, and way over par in the classroom. The Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC) honored Dingmann this fall with the inaugural prestigious Elite 22 Award, which recognizes a student for his or her combined athletic and academic achievements. It is presented to an All-Championship team member (top 10-finish) with the highest grade-point average. Erin took second of 54 players at the
Oct. 5-7, MIAC Tournament, helping the Tommies capture a one-stroke win, the program’s first in six years. Dingmann boasts an impressive 4.0 GPAC at
St. Thomas College, where she pursues a major course of study in marketing, with a minor in French. She attends the institution via academic scholarships from the school and from the Minnesota Women’s Golf Association.
