Nathan Lohmeier, of Hartland, has signed a National Letter of Intent to play baseball at Kellogg Community College and will begin playing for the Bruins next season.

Lohmeier, a senior at Hartland High School, is a member of the school’s 2015 state championship team and earned Prep Baseball Report Preseason All-State honors as a junior. He also earned KLAA Scholar-Athlete and State Bank Athlete of the Week honors as a sophomore and junior, All-County and All-Conference honors as a sophomore and boasts a 3.52 GPA.

“Nate is a talented pitcher from one of the state’s top programs,” said Head KCC Baseball Coach Eric Laskovy. “He is a tireless worker, and we think the sky is the limit for what he can do.”

KCC’s Bruins made their mark last season as conference and regional champions after winning the Michigan Community College Athletic Association conference championship and the National Junior College Athletic Association Division II North Baseball Tournament in May 2015. The team finished the season with a 23-3 conference record and a 39-16 record overall after going 2-2 in NJCAA Division II World Series play in Enid, Okla., in what was the team’s sixth national championship appearance since 1999.

The team’s first home games of the 2016-17 season will begin at 2 p.m. Tuesday, March 29, as part of a doubleheader against Lake Michigan College at Bailey Park in Battle Creek. Admission is free.
