The Iowa Print Sports Writers Association (IPSWA) and the Iowa Girls Coaches Association each released their all-state girls’ basketball teams for the 2019-2020 season.

Two Knoxville Panthers were named to each all-state group.

Katie Keitges, the all-time leading scorer in school history in the 5-on-5 game was named a first-team all-stater by the IGCA and was a second-team selection by the IPSWA. The senior will be headed to the University of Nebraska Omaha in the fall.

Also placed on the IPSWA and IGCA all-state third team was Panther junior Maggie Wilkins.

Keitges and Wilkins each averaged 23 points per game this season as the squad posted a record of 20-3 overall. The Panthers were also South Central Conference Champions for the third year in a row.

The team was coached by Jim Uitermarkt.
