OSKALOOSA—A local high school athlete has signed his letter of intent to continue his academic and athletic career at the collegiate level.
Oskaloosa senior Owen Gordon made it official Tuesday, putting pen to paper and committing to Iowa Central Community College in Fort Dodge, Iowa to swim.
Gordon currently holds the Oskaloosa boys' school record for the 500 freestyle, and he was part of two separate 4-man relay teams that also set Osky school records.
Gordon said he is looking forward to the new challenges of competing at the next level, especially since the ICCC swim program is now nationally ranked among junior colleges.
Gordon plans to study television broadcasting while attending ICCC.
