OTTUMWA, IA – Josh, Brenda, and the team at Meridian Credit Union in Ottumwa, along with Ottumwa Radio Group, want to congratulate Ottumwa baseball player Colton McKinnon, our 101.5 KKSI-FM Athlete of the Week!
The senior tossed his first career no-hitter in last Friday’s Class 4A-Substate 6 First Round game versus Cedar Rapids Washington, leading the Bulldogs to a 1-0 win. Along with not allowing a hit, McKinnon struck out nine batters in his seven innings of work. The right-hander also started Ottumwa’s Substate Final game versus Iowa City High Wednesday night, working four innings of no-hit baseball, but he did not factor into the decision. The Bulldogs went on to win 2-1 against the Little Hawks, clinching their first State Tournament appearance since 2006.
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 schools. This is a great accomplishment and one to be very proud of. Please join us in congratulating Colton McKinnon! All of us at Ottumwa Radio Group wish you continued success in your athletic and educational endeavors.
