With both boys’ and girls’ Henning Hornets basketball teams qualifying for the state tournament this year, and unfortunately, both teams ending their seasons early — for the girls (29-2), in the semifinals and for the returning state champion boys’ team (29-1), in the section playoffs — in response to the COVID-19 pandemic by the Minnesota State High School League, both teams held a drive-thru awards celebration recently.
