PACKWOOD, IA – Ottumwa HyVee’s: North HyVee on Court Street, South HyVee on Quincy Avenue and Drugstore on the corner of Pennsylvania and Jefferson, along with Ottumwa Radio Group, want to congratulate the Pekin girls basketball squad, our 97.7 KOTM-FM Team of the Week!
After opening the season with six straight losses, the Lady Panthers continue to battle back towards a .500 record, having won four of their last five contests. In their last two games, Pekin has outscored both Cardinal and Columbus by a combined 100-39, 60-20 versus the Comets and 40-19 against the Wildcats. Senior Kerrigan Pope leads the way for the Lady Panthers, averaging 17 points and eight rebounds per game, both team highs. Pekin returns to the court Thursday night hosting Davis County.
Our KOTM-FM Team of the Week feature is made possible thanks to the generosity of the Ottumwa Hy-Vees Management team, and the cooperation of our area schools. This is a great accomplishment and one to be very proud of. Please join us in congratulating the Pekin girls basketball team! All of us at Ottumwa Radio Group wish all members of the squad continued success in their athletic and educational endeavors.
