Kee girls basketball team plays to third straight regional final during 17-5 campaign

After playing to program history a season ago with its first-ever State Tournament appearance, the Kee girls basketball team took its 2016-2017 season to the brink of that same qualification accomplishment for the third consecutive season this winter, falling just a few seconds and a single point short of a return trip to that season grand finale. Still, the Lady Hawks played to another strong season with a 17-5 season record that included a 10-3 mark that placed the Hawks third overall in the final Upper Iowa Conference standings and second in the small school division of that league.

Career milestone among highlights of 4-17 season for 2016-2017 Kee boys basketball

The Kee boys basketball team played its way to a 4-17 record this winter, battling through its lowest per game scoring average in the past 10 seasons. That 47.2 points per game average posted by this season’s squad couldn’t quite keep pace with the 57.8 points per game the Hawks allowed on defense this winter.

“As a team, we came close to knocking off Turkey Valley in the first round of the tournament, but poor free throw shooting at the end of the game allowed Turkey Valley to extend a narrow lead and take the victory,” Coach Sullivan remarked.
