Kailey Kladivo enjoyed a trip to Barcelona, Spain with the women's basketball team from Wartburg College at the end of May. The team was accompanied by coaches, some parents and other family members totaling 41 people. Kailey was joined by her mom, Carol Kladivo, and her grandmother, Kay Kladivo. The team played a total of six games over the nine-day trip, winning four of their contests. Several sightseeing activities were planned for the free time including visits to cathedrals, castles, beaches, a boat trip along the coast of the Mediterranean and a visit to a winery.

Kailey also received two awards in May at the Golden Knight Awards Ceremony. She earned the Overall Female Athlete Award and the Hertel Athletic Award for Outstanding Female Two Sport Athlete (basketball and track).

Kailey was the leading scorer and rebounder for the Knights this past season, averaging 14.1 PPG and 5.6 RPG. Wartburg ultimately fell in the Iowa Conference championship game to Luther College. To end the season, Kailey was named to First Team All-Conference for the IIAC. In 2013 and 2014, she was Second Team All-Conference. Kailey is 48th on the list of three-time All Conference players from the IIAC.

After basketball season, Kailey jumped right into indoor track, where she qualified for the indoor nationals at a Last Chance meet with a jump of 5' 6.5". This jump also broke the school indoor record set back in 1984. Nationals were held in Winston-Salem, NC in March.

Kailey continues to participate in the outdoor track season, competing in the high jump and triple jump at meets across Iowa, Wisconsin and Illinois. At the conference meet, she placed second in the high jump and fifth in the triple jump. For an end to the season, Kailey was ranked 23rd in the nation for the Division III high jump.
