The Kee volleyball season rolls on but not without leaving an Upper Iowa Conference (UIC) colleague behind and battling through a hard-fought five-set marathon to make it happen. The Lady Hawks first took care of fellow UIC netters Turkey Valley at home Tuesday, October 17 for the fifth time this season, this time in three straight sets, 25-18, 25-14 and 25-23, in the opening round of Class 1A Region 5 tournament play, but then were locked in a five-set war in the Region 5 quarterfinals at Riceville Monday, October 23, battling Northwood-Kensett in a match in which none of the sets featured more than a final five-point margin of victory for either team, but three of those sets going Kee’s way for the match victory and further postseason advancement by scores of 21-25, 25-23, 20-25, 25-22 and 16-14.
