Accepting the hardware for their hard work ... The Kee baseball team’s lone senior this season, right fielder Chris Wagner, leads the rest of the team as the Hawks are presented the Class 1A State Tournament Runner-Up trophy following their 7-5 loss to Council Bluffs St. Albert in the championship game of the Class 1A State Tournament Thursday, July 29.

ON TO STATE!!! Kee baseball team claims Substate crown, earns first State Tournament berth since 2011 with 11-0 domination of Northwood-Kensett


Ending a decade-long drought without a doubt ... The Kee baseball team displays the banner signifying the Hawks’ qualification for the 2021 Iowa High School State Baseball Tournament after posting the 11-0 mercy-rule win in five innings shining bright on the scoreboard in the photo background above. That win came in the Class 1A Substate 2 Championship game played Tuesday, July 20 at Charles City High School, with the Hawks’ mercy-rule victim being a Northwood-Kensett team that had upset Class 1A top-rated Mason City Newman just a few nights earlier. Playing in a substate championship game for the first time in four years, the Hawk victory advanced them to the Class 1A State Tournament for the first time since the 2011 season, when Kee finished as the Class 1A State Runner-Up. The Hawks’ Substate Championship earned them their 20th appearance at the summer season grand finale, and the first without legendary head coach Gene Schultz at the helm of the program. Kee’s diamond dwellers were scheduled to open this year’s Class 1A State Tournament as the number-four seed in the eighth-team bracket with a Monday, July 26 first-round match-up with fifth-seeded New London.

Playing in its first Class 1A Substate Championship game since the 2017 season and looking to earn qualification for the Class 1A State Tournament for the first time in 10 seasons and the first time ever without legendary head coach Gene Schultz at the helm, the Kee baseball team was matched up with a team looking to make its own bit of history in the Class 1A Substate 2 Championship game played at Charles City High School Tuesday, July 20.

Three-hit night helps them advance ... Waukon baseball senior left fielder Konnor Krambeer drives a pitch into the outfield for one of his three hits in the Indians’ 9-7 district semifinals victory in 11 innings over Waterloo Columbus Tuesday, July 13 at Jesup. Krambeer collected a double and two singles to drive in two runs and score the go-ahead run in that marathon triumph, and also swatted a single in three at-bats in the final game of his high school career, the Tribe’s 3-2 district finals loss at eighth-rated Jesup Saturday, July 17.

The Waukon baseball team had its 2021 campaign brought to a close this past week with a split of two Class 2A District 8 Tournament games, but not before venturing farther than any diamond Tribe has in postseason play since 2011, when the Indians made their last State Tournament bid, and providing Waukon baseball fans with some thrilling memories and hope along the way. After posting a 10-0 first-round district triumph over a winless Postville squad more than a week ago, this year’s postseason surge continued against two much stronger squads in games played at Jesup, the baseball Tribe first waging war against Waterloo Columbus (21-12) Tuesday, July 13 to pull out a 9-7 triumph in 11 innings before then battling eighth-rated Jesup (25-3) right to the very end of just a 3-2 loss at the home of the highly-regarded J-Hawks Saturday, July 17 to have the 2021 diamond season brought to an end.

Kee baseball team claims Class 1A District Championship, advances to first Substate berth since 2017 with wins over Wapsie Valley and South Winn


Championship chat ... Members of the Kee baseball team gather in the outfield as the scoreboard in the background at Shooky Fink Field tells the tale of the Hawks’ 4-2 win at home over South Winneshiek Saturday, July 17 in the Class 1A District 4 Championship game. Following the Hawks’ 3-1 home victory over Wapsie Valley in Class 1A district semifinals play Tuesday, July 13, the Hawks were matched up with their fellow Upper Iowa Conference season champions in that district title bout, with the Kee boys benefiting from a two-out South Winneshiek error in the bottom of the sixth inning to score two runs that proved to be the difference in the game’s final score. The district championship victory is the first claiming of that title for a Kee baseball team since the 2017 season and advanced the Hawks to the Class 1A Substate 2 Championship game scheduled for Tuesday, July 20 at Charles City at 7 p.m. against Northwood-Kensett, with the winner of that substate contest advancing on to the Class 1A State Tournament to be played at Merchants Park in Carroll Monday, July 26 through Thursday, July 29. Kee baseball’s last State Tournament qualification took place during the 2011 season. Photo by Danielle Potter.

The Kee baseball team’s postseason path would end up crossing this past week with a pair of teams the Hawks had fallen to in back-to-back games nearly three weeks earlier. Fortunately, Kee’s diamond dwellers would avenge both of those regular season losses with a pair of two-run triumphs at home that have now pushed the Hawks to their first District Championship and Substate berth since the 2017 season.
