In its only competition of the week, the Kee volleyball team hosted a “battle of the birds” Thursday, October 2 when the Clayton Ridge Eagles flew into Lansing for an Upper Iowa Conference match-up. A formidable Eagle front line that featured a pair of 5’11” seniors and a 6’3” sophomore proved to weigh heavily in Kee being swept in three straight sets by scores of 12-25, 15-25 and 20-25.
Falling to an 8-8 overall record, 3-3 in Upper Iowa Conference (UIC) play, the Hawks are scheduled for one of their busiest weeks of the season.
