OTTUMWA, IA – It’s time to announce our 101.5 KKSI-FM Athlete of the Week brought to you by: Josh, Brenda, and the team at Meridian Credit Union in Ottumwa, where it feels like home.
Our KKSI-FM Athlete of the Week is Ottumwa wrestler Zachariah Shoemaker! The junior clinched a berth to the State Wrestling Tournament with a second place finish at Saturday’s District Tournament in Iowa City, winning his first two bouts by Fall, losing in the Finals by Fall, but then bouncing back to win the 2nd place match by Tech Fall, 3:13 (16-1). Shoemaker and four other Bulldogs begin their quest for a State title Thursday afternoon in Des Moines.
Our KKSI-FM Athlete of the Week program is made possible thanks to the generosity of Meridian Credit Union, and the cooperation of our area high schools. This is a great accomplishment and one to be very proud of. Please join us in congratulating Zachariah Shoemaker! All of us at Ottumwa Radio Group wish you continued success in your athletic and educational endeavors.
