Pierce Hibma to Join Us on Tonight’s Marion County PM Sports Page

Posted: Wednesday, March 14th, 2018 at 5:59 am

One of the newest members of the Iowa High School Athletic Association Hall of Fame will join us tonight on the Marion County PM Sports Page on KNIA & KRLS.

Pierce Hibma, who graduated from Pella High School in 2003, was inducted into the basketball wing on championship night last Friday.

Now an Emergency Room Doctor in North Carolina, Hibma says that the things he learned as a member of the Little Dutch have carried forward to this day.

“If kids are listening, make sure you realize this is an opportunity to develop skills like work ethic, teamwork, accountability and leadership. If you can do that on a high school sports level, you can do that in any arena.”

Hibma is still Pella’s career leader in scoring, and has the most assists in school history as well. He says that he hopes that someone comes along soon to break those records.

You can hear the full interview with Hibma on tonight’s Marion County PM Sports Page, which starts at 6:00 on KNIA & KRLS.

Pierce Hibma to be Honored Tonight

Fifteen years ago, Pella’s Pierce Hibma wrapped up one of the most decorated careers in Iowa high school basketball history. Tonight he takes his place among the greats when he is inducted into the Iowa High School Athletic Association Hall of Fame.

After starring as a sophomore on a Little Dutch squad that finished third at the 2001 state tournament, Hibma led his club to back-to-back championships in 2002 and 2003.

Hibma was named to the all-tournament team all three years, becoming the first player in class 3A history to accomplish that feat. He’s still the only member of that club to this day. He was Pella’s all time leading scorer (1,301) and he holds the school’s career assist (310) record as well.

Hibma played his college basketball at Creighton, where he earned his degree from their College of Medicine. He’s currently a physician at Wake Forest Baptist Health in North Carolina.

The Iowa High School Athletic Association’s class of 2018 will be honored before tonight’s class 3A state championship game.
