'Senior Night' set for Heimstra

March 1, 2013

The CSU women's basketball team will celebrate the career of Meghan Heimstra, one of the top interior players in school history, at 6 p.m. Wednesday when the Rams host Wyoming in their home finale.

“Senior Night” will honor Heimstra, a 6-foot-2, forward from Longmont. She is the lone senior on the team.

Heimstra has been an interior force for the Rams throughout her career. She was named the Mountain West’s “Sixth Player of the Year” last season as the conference’s top reserve, and has been a consistent starter this season for the Rams.

Among the best

She goes into her final home game second on CSU’s all-time list in blocked shot, trailing only CSU Sports Hall of Fame member Teresa James. She’s also 9th in career rebounds with more than 640.

Heimstra, majoring in health and exercise science, leads this year’s team in blocked shots and steals, is second in rebounding and third in scoring. She overcame a major hip injury, which forced her to sit out her second season, to become a steady presence throughout her career for the Rams.
