The Ohio High School Athletic Association recently honored the recipients of its annual scholar-athlete scholarships and Gilmour Academy cross country and track & field athlete Tim Diemer '19 earned one of the highest awards. A total of 199 seniors statewide received a combined $177,750 in scholarship dollars. Tim was one of 36 honorees to earn the top scholarship amount of $1,000.
Scholar-athlete recipients are selected based on a point system that rewards students for grade point averages, class rank, ACT or SAT scores, varsity letters earned, and individual and team athletic honors. The number of scholarship recipients from each district are based upon the number of schools within the district. The recipients were selected by special committees within each of the OHSAA's six athletic districts. Individuals who receive athletic scholarships from NCAA Division I or II institutions or appointees to military academies are not eligible for an award.
Diemer was a four-year letter winner in both cross country and track & field, representing the Lancers multiple years in the state championships for each sport. Most recently, he finished 55th out of 181 runners in the 2018 OHSAA Division III Cross Country state championship, helping Gilmour to an 11th-place team finish. He also competed in the 2019 OHSAA Division III Track & Field state championship. He was part of the fifth-place 4x800 relay and also ran in the 800.
Diemer is attending Purdue University in the fall and will major in engineering.
