Frankie Hofmeyer to Mount St. Joseph University

Elder senior guard Frankie Hofmeyer informed Mount St. Joseph University head coach Toby Carrigan tonight that he will join the Lions next school year. Hofmeyer, a senior captain of the Elder basketball team, was the GCL-South co-player of the year and a 2nd team AP Southwest Ohio All-District All-Star.
The 6’0” senior was Elder’s leading scorer for the second straight year, averaging 16.4 points per game for the Panthers this season. The sharp shooting guard hit 46% of his 3 point field goals this season and finished his career with 900 points, placing him 6th on the school’s all-time scoring list.

Hofmeyer was a three-year starter at Elder where he helped lead the Panthers 58-15 record during his tenure, including back-to-back GCL co-championships and undefeated seasons in The Pit the past two years.

In addition to his success on the hardwood, Hofmeyer is an Honor Roll student in the classroom and also a two-year member of Elder’s varsity baseball team.

He will join a Mount St. Joseph squad that won the 2015-16 Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference championship and captured the school’s first-ever bid to the NCAA DIII Basketball Tournament. The Lions are coached by Toby Carrigan, who earned HCAC coach of the year honors for the second year in a row. Carrigan’s team won the HCAC regular season championship in 2014-15 and the tournament championship last year. He just completed his fifth season at the Mount.

At the Mount, Hofmeyer, who finished his Elder career with 147 made 3-point field goals, will re-join former Panther teammate Mitch Moorhead ’15.
