They have also been a part of two sub-state appearances and with their win over Knox Gibbs last season became part of only three Cyclone teams to advance to the state tournament and won the first state tournament game since the 1950s.

The group also tied a school record with 28 wins in 2018 setting records in 12 offensive and defensive categories.

In the current season, the four seniors have led the Cyclones to an undefeated conference record of 12-0 and finished the 2019 regular season with a record of 21-7 heading into tournament play.
