Kaukauna girls volleyball advances

Down two games to Fond du Lac in the WIAA Division 1 state quarterfinal, Kaukauna mounted a stunning comeback and won the next three games to advance to the semis against Middleton.

Because of early deadlines, covering the fifth game of the match wasn't a possibility. But the other games afforded ample opportunity to capture some moments that helped tell the story.
