The 2019-2020 Kee girls basketball team will include a mixture of new faces and familiarity, as eight young ladies who put in some varsity time last season return but less than half of those returnees bring back any significant contributions to the Lady Hawks’ 14-6 season record last winter. That same kind of mix will also be found in the coaching ranks for the Kee girls program this season, as former Lady Hawk head coach Ben Wagner returns to that helm this season.

Coach Wagner had previously coached the Kee girls program from 1999-2009 before becoming an assistant coach for the Kee boys program from 2010 through completion of the most recently completed season. Furthering his familiarity with the local hardcourt is the fact that Coach Wagner also played his high school basketball in Lansing, including two years at St. George High School and two at Kee.
