Leister signs letter of intent to Texas A&M-Kingsville

 

 
Alyssa Leister will retire her maroon and gold for blue and gold after signing a letter of intent with Texas A&M University-Kingsville for a track scholarship.
 
Nordheim coach Carlton Williams said, “I am happy for her and she is close enough for me to go watch her run.”
 
Kingsville recently won their first Lone Star Conference Outdoor Track & Field Championship since 1970. The Javelinas are ranked fourth in the national team rankings so recruiting Leister will add to  their speed and distance in the long jump.  
 
Leister will pursue a degree in kinesiology in hopes to return to Nordheim to coach.

Niemeier making fourth trip to state in shot put

 

There are very few students that can say they are a six time district champ, four time area, regional, and state qualifyer, all in the area of shot put.
 
When Vickie Niemeier, who prefers to go by the name of Sam, was in 7th grade, Yorktown coach Bruno Mata knew that she was special.
 
Coach Mata said, “When she came out to shot practice I was showing the basics of how to grab the shot put and how to hold it. At the time we had a 12 pound brass shot put mixed with several 6 lb., 8 lb. and 4k (8.8 pounds) shot puts. Sam reached down and picked up a shot put not realizing that it was the 12 pound brass shot put. When she threw it, it went 28 feet. I asked her, ‘How is your arm?’ She replied that it was okay. She threw it again and it went 28 feet. I told myself, ‘This is one of those events that is once in a lifetime.’”
