The Kee volleyball team got its 2021 underway at a pair of locations that begin with “W,” as the Lady Hawks played at both Waukon Monday, August 30 and at Wauzeka-Steuben in Wisconsin Thursday, September 2. Although the Lady Hawks’ season didn’t necessarily begin with that same “W” fate in the win-loss column after a pair of first-night sweeps, they wrapped up their week’s action reversing that trend to end up with an early-season match record of 1-2.

At the Waukon triangular event, the Hawks were swept by both Riceville, 25-19 an 25-21, and the host Indians, 25-11 and 25-7. The Kee net squad bounced back from those season-opening losses to deal Wauzeka-Steuben, WI that same fate, posting a road dual match sweep, 25-22, 25-21 and 25-17.

The Lady Hawks are next scheduled to play freshman and junior varsity matches at Decorah Thursday, September 9 before competing at the Crestwood Tournament Saturday, September 11 and then hosting Clayton Ridge Thursday, September 16. The Kee netters will then take part in the Waukon Tournament Saturday, September 18.
