Kaukauna Completes Unbeaten Softball Season With Third Straight State Title

Kaukauna captured its third consecutive WIAA Division 1 softball championship and fifth in school history with a 4-0 win over Superior on June 10 in Madison.

The Ghosts finished the season 30-0 overall and extended their state-record winning streak to 81 games. Kally Meredith scored three of the team's four runs. Her sister, Karly, drove her in with the game's first two runs on a first inning sacrifice fly and a third inning double. Karly was the winning pitcher with a five-hit shutout. She struck out four and walked one.

Kaukauna reached the finals with an 8-0 win over Waterford in the quarterfinals and a 9-4 win over Oak Creek in the semifinals. In addition to winning titles the past two years, Kaukauna also won state crowns in 2010 and 2017, pushing its all-time record to 15-0 at the state tournament.

The win also continued the FVA's dominance in softball. FVA teams have won four straight titles and five of the past six. It was the conference's 17th state title in softball by six different schools. For Kaukauna, the title marked the school's 29th state championship in all sports with 16 of those coming since 2013-14.
