Kee boys basketball team comes up a bit short, 71-64, in return from holiday break

Holding a 1-7 overall season record, the Hawks were scheduled to hit the road for a busy week this week, playing at Waukon Monday, January 5, at West Central Tuesday, January 6 and at Central Elkader Friday, January 9.
