Our number five moment for Knoxville this past academic season in 2018/2019 takes us actually out of Marion County and to Des Moines at Wells Fargo Arena in January fifth. Knoxville was taking on Newton in a girl/boys basketball double header before an Iowa Wolves game and the girls played first. With the game in hand, Knoxville’s Katie Keitges stuck a three point shot and became the fourth Panther to score 1,000 points in their career. Keitges told KRLS Sports the coaching staff was telling her not to take a three, but she said it was wide open and she took the opportunity. Keitges will embark on her senior year for the Panthers this year. Yesterday she also announced that she had given a verbal commitment to play basketball at the University of Nebraska-Omaha.
