The Kee softball team played a brief schedule this past week, putting half of those games in the win column to record its first wins of the 2021 season. Those victories came in convincing, mercy-rule fashion in a home doubleheader sweep of Postville Wednesday, June 2, the Hawks defeating the visiting Pirates by scores of 12-0 in just three innings and 10-0 in five frames. The Lady Hawks were then scheduled to play a couple games at the North Fayette Valley Classic in West Union Friday, June 4, first surrendering a 4-3 loss to AGWSR in an early-morning battle before falling to Osage by a 12-9 final result.

Now holding a 2-6 overall season record, including a 2-0 start to their Upper Iowa Conference (UIC) season, the Kee girls were next scheduled to play a UIC doubleheader at MFL/MarMac Monday, June 7 before hosting Clayton Ridge for the same Wednesday, June 9. The Lady Hawks will then play another doubleheader at Central Elkader Monday, June 14, host Turkey Valley for a doubleheader Wednesday, June 16 and then play in the West Delaware Tournament in Manchester Friday and Saturday, June 18-19.
