Pequot Lakes alum Rose (Ebnet) Henderson is one of eight athletes inducted as the 2020 class of the Jackrabbit Sports Hall of Fame at South Dakota State University.

Henderson made an impact on the volleyball court from 1997-2000, helping lead the Jackrabbits to unprecedented success in the North Central Conference and three appearances in NCAA Division II postseason play.

An outside hitter from Pequot Lakes, Minnesota, Henderson capped her career in 2000 by being named North Central Conference Most Valuable Player as the Jackrabbits earned a share of the NCC title for the first time in program history. She powered a single-season record of 564 kills that season as SDSU advanced to the regional final.

Henderson also took over the top spot on the SDSU career kills chart during her senior season, finishing with 1,724 — a total that still ranks second in program history. A three-time all-NCC performer, she also finished fourth in digs (1,316) and sixth in block assists (187) on the SDSU career charts.

In addition, Henderson was named an NCC Honor Athlete during the 2000-01 academic year and was the recipient of an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship.
