Horn welcomes Saginaw Heritage girls basketball team to state Capitol

LANSING, Mich. — State Sen. Ken Horn, R-Frankenmuth, welcomed the players and coaching staff of the Saginaw Heritage High School girls basketball team to the Michigan Capitol on Thursday to recognize their recent Class A state championship title.

Horn was joined on the Senate floor by the players, Head Coach Vonnie DeLong, Assistant Coach Bill DeLong and Saginaw Community Schools Superintendent Doug Trombley as he presented the team and coaching staff with a special tribute honoring their accomplishment.

“The Saginaw community is extremely proud of these talented young athletes and what they were able to accomplish through dedication, teamwork and excellent guidance from their coaches,” Horn said. “Their drive and strong work ethic will serve them well throughout their lives. It was my pleasure to honor their remarkable season — a state championship is something these young women will cherish the rest of their lives.”

The Lady Hawks beat East Lansing to claim the state title on March 17, earning their second state championship in the school’s history.
