Kee softball team wins fifth consecutive and third perfect UIC championship, extends conference win streak to 60 games and wins three of four at Don Bosco Tournament

The Kee softball team reigns supreme over the Upper Iowa Conference (UIC) for the fifth consecutive year, closing out its 2018 season with three final doubleheader sweeps this past week to claim its third consecutive undefeated UIC crown and extend its current league win streak to 60 consecutive games dating back to a lone Upper Iowa Conference loss to North Fayette Valley during the 2015 season. This season’s unblemished UIC mark of 16-0 continued to be compiled in dominating fashion again this season, as the Kee girls outscored their league opponents by a combined 205-3 result but did not get a chance to face North Fayette Valley in UIC play this summer after an already postponed June 20 doubleheader was again called off due to weather this past Tuesday, June 26 and has no room to be made up due to postseason tournament play already getting underway this week.
