Kee girls basketball team begins new calendar year with single win

Historic Hawk ... Kee girls basketball senior Reagan Mudderman rewrote Kee girls basketball program history in the Lady Hawks’ 44-32 home win over South Winneshiek Tuesday, January 4, as the first five points she scored in that game pushed her past the Kee girls basketball all-time career scoring mark of 1,364 points established by 2007 Kee High School graduate Chandran Duffy. That fifth and historical point came on a lay-up with 1:44 left to play in the first quarter as part of a 25-point performance by the four-year varsity starter for the Lady Hawks. Mudderman put herself within easy striking distance of that record with a 24-point performance just the night before in a 56-33 Kee loss at Waukon, where she is pictured below soaring in for two of those points.

That lone Lady Hawk victory of the week also featured some Kee girls basketball history, as a 44-32 home win over South Winneshiek Tuesday, January 4 saw Lady Hawk senior Reagan Mudderman become the program’s all-time leading scorer early on in her 25-point performance in the contest, surpassing the previous mark of 1,364 points scored by Chandran (Duffy) Lapel during her Kee girls basketball career during the 2004-2007 seasons.
