State Wrestling Champion Signs with Chadron State
Since January, Rapid City Central has had at least nine high school seniors sign letters of intent to further their athletic careers at the collegiate level.
Wednesday, another Cobbler added his name to the growing list.
Alan Heidinger signed a letter of intent to compete in wrestling at Chadron State College in Chadron, Nebraska.
Two months ago, Heidinger won the 126-pound division at the state wrestling tournament, and completed his senior year with a 47-12 record.
He also finished fourth at the state wrestling tournament in 2012.
Heidinger is excited about competing at the Division II level while staying close to home.
Heidinger says, “Basically, it was far enough so I didn't have to go home everyday. It was close enough so I could go home over the weekend if I wanted to. My parents can come and watch me any day they wanted to. So that was probably the most deciding factor.”
