The Kickapoo girls’ varsity team was at it again this past Wednesday, crushing Glendale’s team 4-1. This game was extremely important to their season, as it was not only the southside showdown but also the conference game.

“It was super exciting because we really weren’t sure how the game would turn out,” sophomore Julia Klein said. “And of course beating a school rival is always a good feeling.”

Winning the game secured for them the 2021 Ozark Conference title and means they are moving onto districts next week. Districts next Monday and Wednesday, beginning with the girls playing Waynesville on Monday. On Wednesday they will play Ozark or Central, depending on who wins their game on Monday.

Because of COVID, this is Klein’s first school season, and what a season it’s been. “It has been super fun getting close with the girls and winning a lot of games,” Klein said.
