Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

SYD­NEY — The Cape Bre­ton Uni­ver­sity Capers women’s bas­ket­ball team has landed one of the top At­lantic Cana­dian high school re­cruits in Kayla McCar­ron of the Syd­ney Academy Wild­cats.

“Kayla will bring ver­sa­til­ity to the lineup as she has the abil­ity to play nu­mer­ous po­si­tions,” said Capers head coach Fabian McKen­zie in a release. “She brings great ath­leti­cism and a great deal of com­pet­i­tive fire to the Capers. Her de­sire to im­prove is very high and she will work hard ev­ery day to be­come a solid player at the CIS level. She has the po­ten­tial to be a very spe­cial player in our pro­gram.”

McCar­ron, a three-time mem­ber of the Nova Sco­tia pro­vin­cial team, led her Syd­ney Academy team to the Cape Bre­ton High School Divi­sion 1 Girls Bas­ket­ball League re­gional ti­tle with 41 points in an 8880 victory over the Memo­rial Ea­gles in the cham­pi­onship, Feb. 19.

“Kayla re­ally dis­played her tal­ents in that game,” said McKen­zie. “She dis­played a great deal of pas­sion and showed that she can score in many dif­fer­ent ways.”

McCar­ron plans to en­ter CBU’s nurs­ing pro­gram in the fall.

“The pro­gram is ex­actly what I was looking for and I am very ex­cited to ex­pe­ri­ence ev­ery­thing it has to of­fer,” said McCar­ron. “On the bas­ket­ball side of things, I can’t wait to get started and put on a Capers jer­sey. The pro­gram here is ter­rific, the coaches are out­stand­ing and the team chem­istry is the best I have seen.”
