SAINTS READY TO BEGIN A NEW IDENTITY

If you followed Saint Charles East basketball the last few years, you probably got to see a whole lot of Justin Hardy.  The four year varsity letterman seemed to always have the ball and in his hands and when he shot it usually went in the basket.  He finished his 12-game Hinsdale Central Holiday Classic career as the event's all-time leading scorer with 233 points.  The Saints' challenge will begin to build a new identity and a pair of returning starters are a good start to begin that journey.  6-3 guard Nathan Ortiz is a three-year starter.  Last year Ortiz averaged 11.3 points per game in his four starts at HCHC.  Also back from the starting lineup is 6-6 senior Cody Mitchell, who is expected to be the anchor around the basket on both ends of the floor.
