What an amazing night of basketball at the Target Center! Minnehaha Academy defeated Sierra Canyon 78-58 in the ESPN Clash of Champions exhibition game.

The Redhawk Boys' Basketball team played a fast-paced and exciting game to a crowd of 17,378 people - one of the highest attended at the Target Center in the last six years. It was also broadcast to more than 17,000 people on ESPN3.

A huge congratulations to our student athletes for the way they represented Minnehaha. We couldn't be more proud of all they have accomplished on the court and in the classroom.

We were fortunate to also have our very talented student Grace perform the National Anthem to begin the game. She truly shone in the spotlight on a national stage!

Students Grace, Prince (also on the basketball team), Zac, and Danyelle were featured on the big screens at the Target Center when our new Upper School video was shown during halftime. It was fun to share what life is like at Minnehaha to our basketball fans.

A huge thank you to all of the Redhawk community who came out to support the team. Your energy was palpable in the space and made the night so much fun.

Thank you also to the coaches, staff, the Target Center, ESPN, Paragon, and everyone else who made the night such a success!
