OSKALOOSA, IA – Josh, Brenda, and the team at Meridian Credit Union in Ottumwa, along with Ottumwa Radio Group, want to congratulate Oskaloosa volleyball player Faith DeRonde, our 101.5 KKSI-FM Athlete of the Week!
The senior brought her ‘A’ game to the Class 4A-Region 3 Final Tuesday against Pella, totaling 21 kills in the Lady Indians’ sweep of the Dutch: 25-19, 26-24, and 25-16. DeRonde hit an extremely efficient .514 in the win, while also notching a team-high six ace serves. The win advances Oskaloosa to their first State Tournament berth in 15 years, with the maroon-and-white’s last appearance coming back in 2006. They’re the six-seed in the Class 4A bracket, and will face Waverly-Shell Rock in next Monday’s Quarterfinal.
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 Faith DeRonde! All of us at Ottumwa Radio Group wish you continued success in your athletic and educational endeavors.
