OSKALOOSA, IA – It’s time to announce our 97.7 TOM-FM Athlete of the Week brought to you by: William Penn University in Oskaloosa.
Our TOM-FM Athlete of the Week is William Penn men’s basketball player Karmari Newman! After an 0-7 first half from behind the arc, the senior guard caught fire in the second half hitting 9-11 three-point attempts on his way to a team-high 35 points in the Statesmen 102-79 win versus Park Saturday in the Conference Tournament Semifinals.
Newman also led William Penn in scoring in Tuesday night’s Heart of America Tournament Championship versus Benedictine with 28 (4-8 3-point). He and the Statesmen will learn their seeding for the NAIA National Tournament Thursday evening.
Our TOM-FM Athlete of the Week program is made possible thanks to the generosity of William Penn University, and the cooperation of our area schools. This is a great accomplishment and one to be very proud of. Please join us in congratulating Kamari Newman! All of us at Ottumwa Radio Group wish you continued success in your athletic and educational endeavors.
