HAWKS TAKING THEIR SHOW ON THE ROAD

When you've built a program like Head Coach Tony Lavorato, Jr. has at Maine South, people start to take notice.  The Hawks, who are tied for first in wins with eight in the three year history of the Hinsdale Central Holiday Classic, have entered themselves in three tournaments and five shootouts this season.  A good reason to upgrade their schedule lies with having two of their three leading scorers back from last year's 22-8 regional finalist.  Seniors Essam Hamwi and Fil Bulatovic return for their third year on the varsity.  Hamwi, and All-Tournament selection at HCHC last year averaged 14.8 points per game and earned 4th team All-State honors.  Bulatovic, a 6-4 senior forward, tallied 10.8 points and 4.2 points per game.  Also watch 6-4 senior Dan Crane, who returns for his third year of varsity competition. 

 

 
 
   



Essam Hamwi was a HCHC All-Tournament Team selection last year.
