Caden McDonald & Hayden Yost - The two head into their senior year as a big part of this Sickles team and will be a key factor to how deep they can go.



Sickles is coming off an appearance at the State Final Four. The 2023 team has a chance to make some noise late in the season. They return all 9 starters from the final 4 lineup a year ago. Their younger guys have developed into better players making them a deeper team than last year. Sickles added a few new arrivals that could make a big impact. "We need to stay true to who we are and stay focused on the daily task and not get too ahead of ourselves" says Coach Luksis. This experienced group has a chance to be really special.
