Minnehaha Academy has been on a dynasty run.  It was previously led by Jalen SuggsJalenSuggs6'5" | SGMinnehaha Academy | 2020State#6NationMN who is now at Gonzaga.  However, a host of talent returns for the Redhawks including 5-star Chet HolmgrenChetHolmgren7'0" | CMinnehaha Academy | 2021State#1NationMN, and they are ready to move the program forward. 

Key Wins in 19-20:  Onalaska (WI), East Ridge, Park Center, Sierra Canyon (CA), Edina, Waseca, Caledonia, La Crosse Central (WI), DeLaSalle, Minneapolis North, Columbia Heights, Totino-Grace.

Oops: The three losses last year were to Cretin-Derham Hall, Hopkins, and Eden Prairie.

Moving On:  The Redhawks lost three mainstays to their program that played 5-6 years on varsity bringing home basketball and football titles: Jalen SuggsJalenSuggs6'5" | SGMinnehaha Academy | 2020State#6NationMN (Gonzaga), Kaden JohnsonKadenJohnson6'4" | SFMinnehaha Academy | 2020StateMN (Wisconsin Football), and Terry LockettTerryLockett6'1" | PGMinnehaha Academy | 2020StateMN (Michigan State Football).   A trio that certainly left a lasting legacy that will be long remembered.  Also, Demarion Watson-SaulsberryDemarionWatson-Saulsberry6'6" | SFMinnehaha Academy | 2022StateMN transferred to Totino-Grace.

Returning Starters:  The Redhawks have three returning starters from last year’s 25-3 team: 5-star senior center Chet HolmgrenChetHolmgren7'0" | CMinnehaha Academy | 2021State#1NationMN (nation’s top recruit), 4-star junior wing Prince AligbePrinceAligbe6'6" | SFMinnehaha Academy | 2022State#39NationMN (top 50-100 level player nationally), and Hercy MillerHercyMiller6'3" | PGMinnehaha Academy | 2021State#195NationMN (top point guard prospect in Minnesota’s senior class).  Each of these players
