There are a litany of places in the history of Minnesota basketball that Lindsay Whalen will forever be immortalized.

One can add her high school alma mater of Hutchinson High School to that list.

This past Tuesday, a ceremony was held to honor the renaming of the indoor gymnasium after Whalen. While at Hutchinson, she became the school’s all-time leading scorer, was part of three conference championship teams, and had her No. 13 jersey retired.

Many were in attendance to be part of the festivities – including the seventh grade and varsity girls teams. A video of her highlights that spanned her high school, college, and professional careers. Daron VanderHeiden, the superintendent of Hutchinson schools emceed and her old high school coach, Andy Rostberg, also paid tribute via video.

Those were pretty cool highlights.

We have to do that again. That Final Four was fun.

There’s no other place I’d rather be from than Hutchinson, Minnesota. There is no better place to grow up.
