The Kee baseball team played to an undefeated week to extend a current eight-game win streak, including a yet undefeated 6-0 start to the Upper Iowa Conference (UIC) season that currently has the Hawks at an 8-2 overall mark. This week’s unblemished schedule included a sweep of a pair of UIC opponents, including wins of 7-2 and 14-4 in five innings over Clayton Ridge/Central at home Monday, June 4 and by scores of 13-2 and 12-2 in five innings Thursday, June 7. The Hawks were also scheduled to play two games in the Charles City Tournament Saturday, June 9, but that tournament was first moved to St. Ansgar due to wet field conditions before being called off due to stormy weather. It is not anticipated to be rescheduled.

The Hawks were scheduled to remain at home all this week, playing doubleheaders against Starmont, Monday, June 11, against South Winneshiek, Thursday, June 14, and against Davenport Assumption, Friday, June 15. Kee’s baseball boys will then play at North Fayette Valley Monday, June 18 before playing in the annual Jeff Houg Tournament in Waukon Saturday, June 23.
