Lyle/Pacelli coach Dean DeBoer and assistant Brady Stier will lead this Athletics team again in 14-15 season with hopes of a winning season. The squad finished 9-17 last year.
Senior Jordan Hart returns and brings a 14.4 ppg average back, Juniors Braden Kocer & Noah Jiskra both return 10ppg. The squad is looking much more mature this season. They will work hard at getting the ball to the rim as often as possible. Overall team shooting can be improved as well as defensive play. There is some work to get started come November 10th.
Winning the East half of the Southeast conference is a goal for the squad this year. Spring Grove provides quality competition from the West half. Heading to Sections provides tougher challenges yet with the likes of Rushford-Peterson and Goodhue being in the way.
It’s been four seasons since Lyle/Pacelli has advanced out of the first round of sub-section playoffs. It’s hopeful to see a top four seed this season as well. This squad would like to make it to Rochester again and advance as far as they can.
