According to MaxPreps, the Kickapoo Lady Chiefs are ranked #46 in the nation. Every week, the rankings are updated and Kickapoo continues to rise on the ranking list.

In 2016, the Lady Chiefs were ranked #52 in the nation, according to MaxPreps. They finished 29-3 on the year and won the Class 5 State Championship. The current Lady Chiefs are looking to collect another plaque and banner to hang around Kickapoo.

The Lady Chiefs stand as #2 in the state and hold a record of 19-2. With 4 regular season games left, the Lady Chiefs hope to add on to the current 15-game winning streak.
