SAINTS READY TO MAKE THEIR STATEMENT


Year three of the Hinsdale Central Holiday Classic figures to be a landmark event for Saint Charles East.  The Saints have had high expectations the past two years but fell in the opening round in both of the last two years.  This year Saint Charles East expects to do a whole lot better and be among one of the top teams in the Chicago suburbs.  The optimism is high thanks to three year starter Justin Hardy, a 6-5 senior forward.  Hardy was chosen to the first team of the All-Tournament Team at last year's HCHC, averaging 18.3 points per game, shooting 61% from the floor and 58% from the three-point arc.  Nate Ortiz is a 6-3 junior guard and Charles Murphy is a junior point guard, who are both ready to handle the backcourt responsibilities.  The Saints have had much success during head coach Patrick Woods' tenure -- averaging 19 wins per season over the past five years.  This year has high expectations that the success will travel to Hinsdale this December.
