TWO NEW TEAMS JOIN 2024 HINSDALE CENTRAL HOLIDAY CLASSIC

Two schools representing conferences that have never participated in the Hinsdale Central Holiday Classic will join the field for the 2024 event.  The new teams include Burlington Central of the Fox Valley Conference and Wheaton Academy from the Chicagoland Christian Conference.  The field of sixteen teams will represent 15 different conferences.

Central High School has amassed a record of 226-53 over the past nine years.  During that stretch, the Rockets have won four Class 3A Regional Championships and have topped the 20-win plateau in eight seasons -- with the only exception coming during the 2020-21 Covid campaign. 

Wheaton Academy has won 18 or more games in four of their last six full seasons.  This past year, the Warriors played mostly underclassmen -- including a number of top prospects from the Classes of 2026 and 2027.

Hinsdale Central Holiday Classic Tournament Manager Joe Spagnolo was excited with the new additions, "To get two quality rising programs, who are slightly under the radar, and represent new conferences to our event, is exactly what we are looking for.  We welcome these two fine schools to our Holiday Classic family."

The field of teams for the 2024 Holiday Classic includes four returning conference champions, 11 teams that finished in the top three positions in their conference, eight teams with 20 wins during the 2023-24 season, and two teams that won 30 games this past year.  The complete field includes Brother Rice, Central High School, DePaul Prep, Hinsdale Central, Lane Tech, Maine South, Marian Catholic, Morgan Park, Morton, Niles North, Oswego East, Plainfield East, Rockford Auburn, Schaumburg, Saint Charles East, and Wheaton Academy.


The 2024 Hinsdale Central Holiday Classic will be played on December 26, 27, 28 and 30 in the historic Hinsdale Bank Gymnasium.  Additional information on the event will be posted on the tournament website at: www.hcholidayclassic.com and on the tournamentís social media pages.
