Sydney, N.S. – Cape Breton University and CAPERS women's basketball head coach Fabian McKenzie is pleased to announce the commitment of Lincoln Prep's Sydney Guker-Wickie to Cape Breton University beginning the 2019-2020 season.
The 5'9 guard from Kitchener, ON explained " Cape Breton University felt like a second family to me within a few hours of being on campus. Coach McKenzie is a motivator and truly loves the game of basketball. I am excited to learn and grow from his over 20 years of knowledge."
Head Coach Fabian McKenzie says "Sydney is going to be a nice addition to our program. She is a high character young lady with a strong desire to improve in all facets of her life. I feel that as she grows and learns the level of play in the AUS she is going to be a very effective player on the floor. Her defensive skills and knack for scoring around the basket will be of great benefit to Sydney as she begins her AUS career. I think Sydney's leadership skills are going to be a positive addition to the locker room. Our program is very happy to have Sydney join us this fall."
When Sydney was asked about coming to Cape Breton University, she said, "I see myself always being the hardest working player on and off the floor. I am looking forward to doing all the little things to contribute to the team's continued success, Go Capers Go."
