Kee softball girls tie State Tournament records in 18-1 first-round win over Montezuma to advance to Thursday semifinal

The Kee softball team tied State Tournament all-time records with 23 hits and 18 runs in opening up their Class 1A State Tournament championship defense with an 18-1 victory over Montezuma Monday, July 17 at Harlan Rogers Sports Complex in Fort Dodge. The Hawks scored in just three innings, but did so with five runs in the second, four more in the fifth, and doubled that total with nine in the seventh inning to take a considerable first step toward repeating as Class 1A State Tournament champions. The Hawks will now advance to the Thursday, July 20 Class 1A semifinals, beginning at 7 p.m., and will play Westwood, 11-9 first-round winners over Colfax-Mingo.

Complete details, including photos, of the Hawks' State Tournament run will appear in the July 26 issue of The Standard. You can subscribe to The Standard's print edition or e-edition by clicking here.
