OTTUMWA, IA – Josh, Brenda, and the team at Meridian Credit Union in Ottumwa, along with Ottumwa Radio Group, want to congratulate Indian Hills track athlete Aliyah Simmons, our 101.5 KKSI-FM Athlete of the Week!
The sophomore became the first woman in IHCC track & field history to win an individual national title earning a first place finish in the 800 Meter Run at the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) National Championships last weekend in Pittsburg, Kansas. Simmons ran a personal best, and school record, time of 2:10.55 in the event. For her efforts throughout the year, she was also named the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) Midwest Regional Female Track Athlete of the Year.
Our KKSI-FM Athlete of the Week feature is made possible thanks to the generosity of Meridian Credit Union, and the cooperation of our area schools. This is a great accomplishment and one to be very proud of. Please join us in congratulating Aliyah Simmons! All of us at Ottumwa Radio Group wish you continued success in your athletic and educational endeavors.
