HAWKS PLAN MANY BIG THINGS FOR UPCOMING SEASON


Averaging 23 wins over the past eight seasons, the Maine South basketball team shows outstanding consistency that ranks among the top programs in the state of Illinois.  Last year the Hawks played a number of juniors and sophomores, gaining valuable experience, which paid off by winning the Riverside-Brookfield Summer League. Big things will be expected this winter when the basketball season gets into gear.  And "big" is a perfect adjective to describe the Hawks.  Returning for this year's campaign are a number of big players starting with 6-7 Grant Miller, a three-year varsity player who averaged 11.5 points per game last season at the Hinsdale Central Holiday Classic.  Tom Gardiner is a 6-6 forward, who is another three year starter and who is coming back from injury.  6-4 junior Fil Bulatovic, in his second year of varsity competition, completes the massive front line.  Even the backcourt will have size with another three-year player in 6-3 Michael George and 6-1 junior Essam Hamwi, who averaged in double digits at last year's HCHC.  The Hawks will be looking to be racking up big numbers next year on the court and in the win column.
