Sherbrooke SUNS welcomes Ariel to our Senior Women’s team for 2022 season. Coach Chad Burton said: “Ariel will be a great asset to the team for the coming Big V season, she shoots the ball at a high percentage and most importantly for me she is a great defender and gets after the ball. Ariel will fit right in with the team and she is a great club person, she has most recently played in Europe and I know she can mentor our younger players in the team and our club to help them improve. I look forward to her arriving and getting started with the team.”
Ariel is a passionate guard who loves to win. She is big on having lots of energy, hoping to encourage and energize her teammates. Enjoys scoring the ball, she loves setting her teammates up to score the ball. Her style of play is versatile. Can shoot the three, the pull up, and even attack the basket. Is big on ‘easy buckets’ which is by being aggressive in defense, or grabbing rebounds and pushing the ball for easy baskets in transition. She believe you are less likely to make mistakes if you just stay aggressive. Enjoys snatching rebounds and initiating early, fast transition. Although Ariel is a tough player all around, she believes the only way to achieve is together.
The Sherbrooke Suns family are extremely excited to officially welcome their new and extremely talented big man Jonathan Cathey-Macklin to their senior men’s program!
Jon is a very well-known international player with a long-playing history and transitioned into basketball down under shortly after his arrival.
Jon attended college at Tarleton State University where he quickly excelled to become the strong dominant player he currently is. From there, he began his professional career which has led him to play in more than 6 countries over the past 8 years.
Jon played in countries such as Mexico, Tunisia, Germany and recently played in Bolivia before arriving in Australia. Throughout his career, Jon has easily averaged an impressive 25 plus points and 15 rebounds along with a strong and dominant number of blocks per game. Although a late addition, Jon was highly recruited by our Suns club while he was considering another offer to play in Mexico. The Suns knew that Jon would be a great fit to the team because of his welcoming personality and his high level talent and so they pushed to be his number one option for playing for this season.
The Suns family would like to give a huge warm welcome to Jon as he settles in and prepares to assist the Suns in having a successful season.
We can’t wait to see him in our gold coloured uniform while he showcases his talent!
