OTTUMWA, IA – Josh, Brenda, and the team at Meridian Credit Union in Ottumwa, along with Ottumwa Radio Group, want to congratulate Ottumwa baseball player Tanner Schark, our 101.5 KKSI-FM Athlete of the Week!
The sophomore clinched the Bulldogs first State Baseball Tournament appearance in 15 years, earning the win in relief against Iowa City High in the Class 4A-Substate 6 Final, 2-1. Schark pitched the final three innings allowing just one hit, walking one, and striking out three Little Hawk batters on his way to earning his seventh victory of the season. His performance helped advance Ottumwa to their first State Tournament berth since 2006, as the Bulldogs open play in Iowa City today against Pleasant Valley in the 4A 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 Tanner Schark! All of us at Ottumwa Radio Group wish you continued success in your athletic and educational endeavors.
