From CCX Media:
“The Wayzata volleyball team is coming off a state championship and unbeaten season.
But despite the loss of five key seniors, the Trojans are loaded with talent again this fall. Twins Olivia and Stella Swenson have both verbally committed to the University of Minnesota, senior libero Sophia Johnson is a Cal commit and Avery Jesewitz is the Trojans’ returning left-side hitter and is also a Division 1 recruit.
The team also expects big contributions from girls who didn’t see a lot of varsity playing time a year ago. Wayzata opens the season at home August 25th against Minnetonka.”
Wayzata High School Volleyball finished the abbreviated season 13-0 by defeating Maple Grove in 3 sets: 25-20, 25-23, 25-20. The Trojans also finished the season ranked #1 by the Minnesota Volleyball Coaches Association.
The 2020 Wayzata Volleball team was undefeated in 13 contests and ranked #1 by the Coaches Poll.
The Wayzata state champion football and volleyball teams will have to wait until spring to defend their titles.
The Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL) announced football and volleyball are moving to next spring.
The board states spring football will have no scrimmages, a shorter season, and fewer games. The postseason plan still has not been determined.
The MSHSL’s board of directors decided to move forward with other fall activities including girls tennis, cross country, soccer and girls swimming and diving.
“Our Board of Directors recognizes the importance of the League’s activities in supporting the mental and physical well-being of our students and worked very hard to provide some level of participation in all activities,” said MSHSL Executive Director Erich Martens. “In addition, they recognize their responsibility in focusing on the health and safety of all who participate in or support these opportunities.”
At Monday’s Wayzata School Board Meeting, the state champion Wayzata High School Volleyball and Football teams will be honored.
The board is also putting on a farewell party for outgoing board member Erik Brown.
The school board meeting starts at 7 p.m. at Wayzata City Hall.

Check out this article by Matt Thomas from the Lakeshore Weekly News about Wayzata Volleyball finishing second in the state:
“For the second straight season, the Wayzata volleyball team found itself in the heartbreaking position of being on the cusp of capturing a state championship, but falling just short to a team with superior talent.
Last year it was Shakopee and its University of Minnesota recruit Ashley Wittman. This year it was Lakeville North and its University of Minnesota recruit Taylr McNeil.
McNeil – who is only a freshman, but has verbally committed to the U of M – recorded 27 kills on 44 swings for a gaudy .568 hitting percentage.”To read the full story, visit this link: Trojans finish second at state, again – Lakeshore Weekly News – Wayzata, Minnesota:
