History was made when the Kimball girls’ varsity basketball team traveled to Belgrade on Feb. 25 for its final Central Minnesota Conference game of the season at BBE. Ellie Kuechle, a junior guard for the Cubs, became the 9th player in school history to score her 1,000th career point in the contest. Kimball held on for a thrilling 64-55 victory, guaranteeing the squad a share of the 2021-22 CMC Conference Championship.
"This group has come a long way in the last two years and I am so incredibly proud of them all,” said head coach Jeremy Kuechle. “It's such a journey through all the ups and downs, but I think my favorite part of tonight’s game was just watching them jump up and down in celebration in the locker room after the victory."
