Henning improved to 5-2 overall as the Hornets won for the fifth time in six games last week. The Hornets defeated Battle Lake 70-56 in non-conference action, before defeating the Sebeka Trojans on Thursday night 79-45.
This week the Hornets will travel to Wadena on Tuesday night and New York Mills on Friday in a pair of Park Region Conference games.
Tyson Misegades hit six 3-pointers and helped the Hornets overcome a slow start against their rivals down Highway 210 on Tuesday night. Misegades finished with 29 points as he went 6-10 from behind the 3-point line.
“We came out of the gates slowly. But, Tyson Misegades caught fire midway through the half, making six triples in the half, which gave us some momentum,” said Head Coach Randy Misegades.
The Hornets led 42-25 at halftime, before coming away with the 70-56 non-conference win. As a team, the Hornets shot 46 percent from the field and hit eight 3-pointers in the win.
Despite the hot night of shooting across the board, Misegades said the Battlers played hard down the stretch to make a game of it in the second half.
“Battle Lake played very hard and clawed back to make it tight, but we were able to seal the deal with some big baskets and free throws late,” said Misegades. “We just need to continue working to get consistent effort from all of our guys on both ends of the floor each night.”
In addition to Tyson Misegades, the Hornets were led offensively by Tanner Arndt show scored 15 points to go along with 4 assists and 5 rebounds.
Misegades credited the effort of Ethan Houselog in the paint on Tuesday night as the senior scored 6 points to go along with 9 rebounds.

Henning used a strong second half to blow past Sebeka 79-45 on Thursday night. The Hornets led 35-20 at halftime and were led by Mason Hammer who scored 20 points, Tanner Arndt with 19 points, Joe Angell with 12 and Tyson Misegades with 10.
As a team the Hornets shot 45 percent from the field, but were just 7-31 from behind the 3-point line.
“It was nice to pick up a win on a night we didn’t shoot the ball particularly well,” said Head Coach Randy Misegades. “We need to do a better job moving the ball and being efficient on offense and we also need to clean up a number of things on the defensive end.”
Misegades credited Angell with a solid game as the senior was 6-8 from the field and pulled down 12 rebounds to register a double-double on the night.
