ALBIA, IA – It’s time to announce the KTWA Athlete of the Week, brought to you by Pella Regional Therapy in Ottumwa. Physical, occupational, speech, and aquatic therapy, located at the Ottumwa YMCA.
The KTWA Athlete of the Week is: Albia softball player Alex Beard. The senior finished her season batting .371 and tying for a team-high four home runs with 16 runs batted in. Beard, along with six other fellow seniors, helped lead the Blue Demons to their first state softball championship with a 1-0 win over Williamsburg in last Friday’s Class 3A title game.
Ottumwa Radio’s Athlete of the Week program is made possible by the generosity of Pella Regional Therapy in Ottumwa, 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 Alex Beard. All of us at the Ottumwa Radio Group wish you continued success in your future!
Our Athlete of the Week feature will return at the end of August as schools begin to transition into Fall sports seasons.
