Nicolet baseball coach Sykes to retire after 23 years

Oct. 20, 2012

After 23 years, one state title, nine conference crowns and over 500 career wins, Nicolet baseball coach Dick Sykes has announced his retirement.

Sykes said that he wanted to be able to see his youngest son Alex participate in high school sports, which Sykes said he was unable to do with his other children. He said he will also be retiring from teaching at the end of the school year.

He led Nicolet to four state tournament berths including a WIAA state title in 1998. He was also elected into the Wisconsin Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame a few years ago.

"I leave with no regrets, I accomplished everything I wanted to do while coaching," he said.
