Playing at the second singles position in dual matches at NJIT and Ivy League powerhouse Columbia, he defeated his Highlanders' opponent 6-3, 6-4 before forcing his opponent from Columbia to three sets before falling 6-7, 7-6, 1-6. Himmelsbach has also played at both the first and second doubles positions this spring, winning two matches. He defeated a pair from Harvard 8-2 and also salvaged the Red Foxes' lone win against Columbia 9-8 (10-5).
