Anna Nimz is transferring to Dodge City

Ken Corbitt Capital-Journal

Anna Nimz is leaving the Washburn women’s basketball team, but she could return in a year.

Nimz, who had limited playing time during her freshman season, is transferring to Dodge City Community College but has an open invitation to return to the Lady Blues, coach Ron McHenry said Monday.

“It was a mutual decision,” McHenry said. “She wants to play and we have so many players at the two-guard spot, so it wasn’t looking like she would get much time next season.”

Starter Alison Garrett will return for her senior year and Erin Menard will be a junior next season.

Nimz could not be reached for comment.

Nimz was a Topeka Capital-Journal All-State Top 5 selection at Hayden, leaving as the career scoring leader (her record was broken this year by Kalee Silovsky). The 5-foot-9 guard played a total of 65 minutes in 15 games, averaging 2.5 points and 0.9 rebounds for the MIAA co-champion Lady Blues.

“Anna explored her options and she’ll go to Dodge for a year and then the plan is for her to come back,” McHenry said. “I’m sure she’ll have some options at that time, but we’d like to have her back.”

Nimz will play at Dodge City for coach Jim Turgeon, a Topeka native who guided the Conquistadors to a second-place finish in the Region VI tournament last season. Turgeon also announced the signing of Highland Park’s Nettie Hunt, a second-team All-City selection.
