Good mix of veterans and newcomers results in 2014 Kee volleyball team playing to 12-17 record

The Kee volleyball team put together a 12-17 record for its 2014 campaign, tempering a dash of returning veteran leadership with a dose of young athleticism. That combination played out to a 4-5 UIC record that placed the Hawk netters in the middle of the final UIC standings, but also meshed well enough to allow the entire team to grow and peak when it mattered most, as the Hawks won their opening round of Class 1A Regional Tournament play over Central Elkader before having their season ended once again at the hands of top-10 ranked Turkey Valley in a hard-fought battle.
