The 2018-19 school year has come to a close, and with it, the spring sports season.
Here's a glimpse at some quick-hitting highlights from April and May:
- The baseball team improved from four to seven wins and won a playoff game for the first time since 2017, advancing to the Section 2AA quarterfinals. This was done with injuries to key seniors.
- Although it took a little longer than hoped, the brand new track and field facility opened up for practice with the first meet on the way in 2020.
- Sticking with track, the Knights claimed a conference title with Juliana Boyum winning the 100-meter hurdles. The junior Boyum doubled up to win a subsection title, as did seventh-grader Hayley Lentsch in the 400. Much of the Knights' production came from juniors or younger, including freshman Josh Schmidt who led the boys in points.
- For the second straight year, K-W softball won a section playoff game. Both instances were against Gibbon-Fairfax-Winthrop, with this one a 9-8 thriller where Emma Berquam battled to get out of a high-stakes jam in the seventh inning. Berquam was the team's only senior.
- Sophomore Tanner Angelstad advanced to day two of the Section 2AA golf meet and was in the hunt to qualify for the state meet. The K-W boys drop down to Class A beginning next year.
