Witzke excited about 2nd year at DMACC


Usually the first year of college is about young adults finding themselves.
Former Humboldt High all-state baseball player Chris Witzke has appeared to have found a new home at Des Moines Area Community College in Boone.
A year ago Witzke, a 2016 HHS graduate, headed off to the University of Illinois at Springfield, where he joined the NCAA Division II program. But after the first semester, Witzke opted to transfer back to Iowa and play for the DMACC Bears. Witzke made a significant contribution this past season and is now looking forward to his second year with the junior college program.
“It was tough leaving UIS, but I got a really good deal financially over at DMACC. I decided over the long term I would be saving some money by starting out at DMACC. I would also have a chance to have a different role at DMACC than I did at Springfield,” Witzke said. “I felt like I could have a better impact at DMACC.”
