PACKWOOD, IA – It’s time to announce the KKSI-FM Athlete of the Week brought to you by Josh, Brenda and the team at Meridian Credit Union in Ottumwa, where it feels like home.
The KKSI-FM Athlete of the Week is: Pekin cross country runner Lauren Steigleder! The freshman paced the Panthers at their regular season finale in Mediapolis last Thursday, finishing third in the individual standings with a time of 21:53.07. Her performance, along with several more strong finishes, led the Pekin girls to the meet title. The Panthers host a Class 1A State Qualifying Meet today in Packwood with a chance to advance to the State Meet next Saturday on the line.
Ottumwa Radio’s Athlete of the Week program is made possible by the generosity of Meridian Credit Union, and the cooperation of our area high schools. This is a great accomplishment and one to be very proud of. Please join us in congratulating Lauren Steigleder! All of us at Ottumwa Radio Group wish you continued success as the season moves forward.
