Waukon baseball team plays to 15-17 result during 2022 campaign

For the second consecutive season, the Waukon baseball team played to 15 wins and hovered right around the .500 mark with its 2022 campaign of 15-17. Never losing more than three games in a row at any point in the season, the diamond Tribe had this summer’s campaign brought to a close in the second round of Class 2A district tournament play by a Dyersville Beckman squad ranked fourth that played its way to the Class 2A State Tournament, the Blazers having their season ended in the season grand finale semifinals by undefeated and now four-time Class 2A State Champion Van Meter.

Overall young Waukon softball team without a single senior on its roster plays to 8-16 final result during 2022 campaign

The 2022 Waukon softball season played out to an overall record of 8-16 for an overall young Lady Indian squad that didn’t have a single senior on this summer’s roster and most of the time had two-thirds of its players on the field be sophomores or younger, including as many as three freshmen and an eighth grader at certain points. The learning curve of this season’s squad seemed to be falling sharply as the season came to a close, as the diamond Tribe won three of its last four regular season games, but the Indians had their season brought to an early close in the opening round of their Class 3A regional tournament by a Dubuque Wahlert squad that eventually played its way to qualification for this season’s Class 3A State Tournament.

Kee softball team plays to another share of UIC crown during 17-15 campaign

The 2022 Kee softball team played to an overall season record that was right around average with a 17-15 mark, but for the second consecutive season the Lady Hawks played to an Upper Iowa Conference (UIC) result that was well above average. The Lady Hawks played their way to a share of the Upper Iowa Conference (UIC) season championship once again this season by tying Turkey Valley for this summer’s best UIC record at 14-2.

That second consecutive Upper Iowa Conference crown for her charges topped the list of this season’s high points for Kee softball coach Liz Hill. Accomplishing that feat with as many as four eighth graders on the field this summer adds a whole different dimension to not only this year, but many to come.

Upper Iowa Conference colleague Warriors then fall to top-seed Remsen-St. Mary’s in first round

Not many would have thought that the 2022 Kee baseball season would have been ended shy of a return trip to the Class 1A State Tournament, and especially not by a team they had outscored by a 33-6 result in a three-game regular season sweep. What those many may not realize, however, is that the team that ended the veteran Hawks’ 2022 journey toward improving on their 2021 State Tournament Runner-Up finish in a Tuesday, July 12 Class 1A Substate 3 championship game played at Decorah is a South Winneshiek squad that has now qualified for the State Tournament in three of the past four seasons.
