Senior twins Hayden and Haylie Zenner have had a unique and memorable homecoming this year.

For the first time at Fergus Falls High School, 17-year-old twin brother and sister were crowned king and queen.

“It was such a surprise. I knew Hayden was going to win but I really didn’t think I was going to,” Haylie said.

“It was pure shock,” Hayden said. “It was really awkward that we both won. We have gotten made fun of a lot about it, but we have taken the teasing and we are dealing with it.”

Not only are the Zenners popular with their peers, but they have really made a name for themselves in the sporting world. Haylie participates in cross country and basketball and Hayden in football and wrestling and both are in track. When asked who is the faster runner Hayden quickly chimed in with his arms raised high, “I am.”

“No you might be a faster runner than me but I’m a faster distance runner than you. In the 800, I could kick your butt,” Haylie said.

The twins have a unique relationship, “It’s a very much love-hate relationship. We get along but then we fight at the same time,” Haylie said.

“We get along for the most part. We have the same group of friends,” Hayden said.

They spend a lot of time together between classes and homework, sports and hanging out with friends.

“We do like to go out and play Frisbee with each other. It’s a great leisure activity they we have been playing for a long time,” they said.

Haylie and Hayden are not planning on continuing their education together. They plan on attending different colleges next year. “I’m excited, but then you realize that it’s over and I’m leaving my friends and my brother,” Haylie said.
