NEW COACH, SAME EXPECTATIONS  


Basketball coach Tom Cappel compiled more than 600 victories, a mark accomplished by only 39 coaches in state history.  As head coach of Crete-Monee, his teams averaged 18 victories in the past six seasons.  When Cappel retired after the season, the school didn't have too look far to find a new head coach.  Mario Coleman was not only interested but more than qualified, as he was the school's sophomore coach that compiled a 19-1 record last year.  Why mess with success?  Coleman was named the new coach in the summer and has already implemented an exciting high-flying style of basketball that plays right into the hands of the outstanding athleticism that Crete-Monee will have this year.  Back for the Warriors are two starters in Malik Hardmon and Josh Evans.  Hardmon, a 6-3 forward, was one of two players to average a double-double at last year's Hinsdale Central Holiday Classic, tallying a 14.8 points per game and 10.3 rebounds per game ratios.  Hardmon was selected to the HCHC All-Tournament Team.  This year you'll notice Coach Coleman the moment he steps in the gym.  He is full of charisma and this year should be full of high expectations.
