BLOOMFIELD, IA – Shawn McCarty State Farm Agent, serving southeast Iowa from his office at 604 W Burlington in Fairfield, along with Ottumwa Radio Group want to congratulate Davis County wrestler Emmitt Newton, our 104.3 KRKN Athlete of the Week!
The freshman ran his dual record up to 43-1 on the season while clinching a first place finish at Saturday’s Sectionals at Albia in the 106 weight class. Newton received a bye into the Semifinals, prior to earning a win by fall, then by 5-1 Decision in the First Place Match. He’ll wrestle for a ticket to the State Championships Saturday at the Class 2A-District 3 event in Knoxville.
Our KRKN Athlete of the Week feature is made possible thanks to the generosity of Shawn McCarty and State Farm Insurance, plus the cooperation of our area schools. This is a great accomplishment and one to be very proud of. Please join us in congratulating Emmitt Newton! Shawn McCarty and Ottumwa Radio Group wish you continued success in your athletic and educational endeavors.
