Sycamore

Scouting Report: Sycamore

Coach: Brett Goff (second season, 12-15)

Last Season: 12-15 overall, 2-8 Northern Illinois Big 12 East

Postseason Result: Lost to Sterling, 51-23, in Class 3A Rochelle Regional semifinals

Key Returners: Jessica Mollman, sr., F; Julia Moll, jr. G; Bailey Gilbert, so., G

Impact Newcomers: Baylee Foresman, jr., F; Paige Wogen, so. G; Jenee Carlson, so., G; Kayley Aase, fr. C; Lauren Goff, fr. G

Outlook: Sycamore returns an inexperienced group, including only one starter. Gilbert started as a freshman and was named All-Area Honorable Mention.

Mollman saw a lot of minutes off the bench as a junior and will now step into a permanent starting role.

It's an unusual position for Goff, in his second year as the head coach. Although he was new to the program last year, he worked with a more experienced team and had a better idea of what to expect at the start of the season. This year, Sycamore's early-season tournaments will be take on more importance.

Goff's take: "We'll be a very young team this year, very inexperienced, but we'll take our chances. We got a good group. They're working hard so far so I like what I've seen."
