The Kee cross country team posted its most successful overall results in many years when it ran at the MFL/MarMac Invitational Thursday, August 31. The Hawk girls made a strong early-season statement by, literally, running past Class 1A’s most recently top-ranked team, two-time defending Class 1A State Champion Central Elkader, to claim team championship honors at the MFL/MarMac meet, while the Kee boys also showed marked improvement as this young season gets underway with a runner-up finish at the meet run at Tri-City Golf Course in rural Luana.
