101.5 KKSI-FM Athlete of the Week: Olivia Gordon, Oskaloosa Volleyball


OSKALOOSA, IA – Josh, Brenda, and the team at Meridian Credit Union in Ottumwa, along with Ottumwa Radio Group, want to congratulate Oskaloosa volleyball player Olivia Gordon, our 101.5 KKSI-FM Athlete of the Week!

The senior setter totaled 37 assists and tied for a team-high two ace serves in the Lady Indians’ State Tournament Quarterfinal match Monday against Waverly-Shell Rock, albeit in a losing effort as Oskaloosa fell in five sets against the third-seeded Go-Hawks: 25-23, 26-28, 25-21, 15-25, and 12-15. Gordon continued to feed her teammate, and last week’s 101.5 KKSI-FM Athlete of the Week: fellow senior Faith DeRonde, who set a new Class 4A record with 40 kills in the loss. The maroon-and-white finish the season at 31-5 overall having made 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 Olivia Gordon! All of us at Ottumwa Radio Group wish you continued success in your athletic and educational endeavors.
