In a semifinal matchup with Sauk Prairie, she had 10 kills, 11 assists, 11 digs and three blocks as the Chargers swept 3-0. Burlington awaited in the title match and Katelyn turned it up a notch. She finished with 10 kills, 23 assists, 12 digs and four blocks in the 3-1 victory.
Katelyn's performance led the Chargers to capture the Division 1 WIAA State championship for the first time in school history. Their second appearance came all the way back in 1986.
