Kee girls basketball team records season of historical proportions for 2014-2015

The 2014-2015 Kee girls basketball season proved to be the best in the history of the Hawks’ five-on-five program, and there are plenty of numbers to back up that claim. First and foremost in those numbers is the 21-4 record the Hawks compiled this season, the most wins, by far, of any previous Kee five-on-five girls basketball season, according to head coach Danny Love.
Improving on that previous best single-season record of 13-8 from the 2007-2008 season on the way to advancing to the Class 1A Region 4 championship game and the brink of a State Tournament berth was just one of the many highlights Coach Love has drawn from this past season. But he sees this season as having a much bigger impact than just another entry in the school record books.
