“The ninth-ranked Wayzata wrestling team fell 31-29 to fourth-ranked Eden Prairie in a good Lake Conference match Thursday. Eden Prairie won the first three matches to go up 12-0, highlighted by Charles Vanier’s 7-6 win over Luke Koenen in a matchup of top five ranked wrestlers. Wayzata won the next three to grab a 13-12 lead. The Trojans’ fifth-ranked Charlie Petit won a key match at 152, beating third-ranked Terae Dunn 6-4 in overtime. Wayzata won three straight matches to lead 29-19, but Eden Prairie’s outstanding closing duo of Dominic Heim (220) and Will Sather (285) won by fall as the Eagles rallied for the win.” From CCX Media.”The ninth-ranked Wayzata wrestling team fell 31-29 to fourth-ranked Eden Prairie in a good Lake Conference match Thursday.

“The Wayzata boys basketball put up 57 second half points to pull away and beat Hopkins 89-64 for the Trojans’ eighth straight win. Trailing by as many as nine in the first half, Wayzata closed with a 22-7 scoring run to close the first half and then outscored Hopkins 57-38 in the second half. Jackson McAndrew scored 27 points while Spencer Hall added 15. Jake Schmitt and Hayden Tibbits scored 13 each for the Trojans (8-3). Jayden Moore scored 20 points to lead Hopkins (11-2). Wayzata made 14 three-pointers in the game. The Trojans and Royals play again February 10th at Hopkins.” From CCX Media.
Phase 2 of the Panoway on Wayzata Bay project, which includes the construction of the boardwalk and new docks, will come with a much higher price tag than expected based on the latest estimates.
The cost estimates received in December projected a 37-percent increase in costs due to marketchanges. The new estimate for the boardwalk portion of the project is $9.27 million.
The cost estimate for the new docks experienced an even greater increase, though the scope of that part of the project significantly changed with the decision to remove all of the docks for construction.
The estimate increased 170-percent to about $2.08 million.
The council met on Jan. 10 to approve the construction documents for the boardwalk, docks and Section Foreman House.
It voted 4-1 in favor of approving the documents to move the project toward the bidding phase.
Councilor Cathy Iverson voted against approving the documents but clarified on record that she is in support of approving the Section Foreman House documents.
Construction documents are not a final representation of what will be done on the Panoway. Several aspects of construction included alternates for cost saving purposes, such as alternate proposed materials.
For instance, there is an alternate option for the boardwalk railing that could save $230,000 by using galvanized steel rather than stainless steel.
With the construction documents approved, the various aspects of the project will soon go out to bid, starting with a request for proposals for steel and precast material.
This portion will be bid on first to stay ahead of any possible supply chain delays which Scott Jordan, principal of Civitas, said have largely eased.
Construction for the boardwalk and docks are expected to go out for bids in February.
According to the schedule laid out during the council meeting, construction of the boardwalk would begin in early June and be complete by the end of November.
Likewise installation of the docks would take place throughout the summer.
In late August, the Broadway docks would be removed while dock pilings are installed. The docks would then be open for the full 2024 summer season.
In voting against the approval of the documents, Iverson said her reservations stem from not having the funding secured, as well as the overall cost.
“The overall cost of the project is close to $10 million for a boardwalk that is probably less than a half-mile long,” she said. “We have $4 million I know we’re going to secure. I’m comfortable with that. My concern is with the additional funding of another $6 million.”
Iverson noted that several dates on the project’s schedule are fast approaching and she is worried about paying for the funding gaps with a loan paid through tax increment financing.
City Manager Jeff Dahl said though there is always some risk in taking out a loan, it is not a significant risk. He is optimistic that the city will secure more funding from the state.
“Everything is predicated on getting those plans out now,” he said. “This is a great time to solicit bids, get the best price and keep costs down. If it gets delayed, that potentially pushes us out another year.”
“The Hopkins gymnastics team defeated Wayzata 141.400 to 138.075 for the team’s fourth dual meet win of the season. Hopkins (4-0) also placed first in an invitational meet in Princeton last weekend. Hopkins junior Annabelle Speers won the bars, beam, and floor exercise to win the meet’s all-around title with a score of 36.800. NyahSymone Britt of Hopkins won the vault with a score of 9.400. The loss was the first of the season for Wayzata (3-1). It marked the first time Hopkins has defeated Wayzata in gymnastics since January 2009. The teams will be the favorites to advance to state at the Section 6AA meet Feb. 18 at Hopkins High School. Wayzata is the defending state champion in Class AA.” From CCX Media.
The Trojans (11-1-0) used a combination of stifling defense and outside shooting on offense to defeat previously unbeaten STMA (12-1-0) by a score of 54-44.
The Knights used a 2-3 zone defensively throughout the game, and lead 24-23 at the half as Wayzata struggled to adapt to the scheme.
Wayzata was able to keep phenom Tessa Johnson in check with help defense and always seemed to have a hand in her face.
Towards the middle of the 2nd half, things began to Wayzata’s way as the Trojans were able to secure defensive stops, get easy buckets on fast breaks, and shoot well from outside.
Wayzata’s execution was too much for the Knights, and late in the 2nd half with STMA trailing it became obvious the Trojans were destined to win this one.
Sophie Hawkinson scored 15 points with three field goals and three 3-pointers. Brynn Senden (Minnesota commit) had 11 points including two 3-pointers. Abby Krzewinski had 10 points, Kate Amelotte had 7 points, Jessica Oberlander has 4 points, and Ella Goodnature had 2.
For STMA, Tessa Johnson (South Carolina commit) had 15 points, Ja’Kahla Craft had 14 points including four 3-pointers, Abby Hoselton had 6 points, Kylie Diaz had 5 points, and Ava Haus had 2 points.
It’s a signature win for Head Coach Julie Stewart‘s club.
The Trojans travel to #1 ranked Hopkins (10-0) next Tuesday, January 17th at 7pm.
During the first meeting of 2023, the City of Wayzata swore in Molly MacDonald and Jeff Parkhill to serve 4 year terms.
MacDonald won re-election after being appointed to Johanna Mouton’s seat when she won the Mayor’s race. Parkhill most recently served as Planning Commission Chair. Jeff Buchanan did not seek re-election.
