Henning also previously served as an assistant coach for the Beatrice girls soccer team for two seasons under Greg Sederberg.

A tough schedule for the Orangemen in 2019 led to a 2-12 overall record.

Beatrice High School is still seeking applicants for the head girls tennis coach. Applicants should submit resume and letter of interest to BHS Athletic Director Neal Randel.
