  Boys Lacrosse is sitting in a solid spot in the Lake Conference standings after a commanding 12-0 victory against Hopkins on Thursday, May 18th at WHS. Sophomore Brayden Nelson and Junior Brooks Hanson both netted hat-tricks while Junior
Matthew Mayberry tended the net and led the shutout.
  The Trojans currently sit second in the Lake Conference standings with a 5-3 conference record. Eden Prairie holds the
top spot with an undefeated 8-0 conference record. The Trojans have lost to EP twice, once by five and once by four goals. “So far the season has gone pretty well,” said sophomore Chris Thomas, “We have definitely had our highs and lows and we are beginning to play more disciplined and stabilized.” Thomas has been a very important player to the team, being very effective on faceoffs.
  Much of their success has come from sophomore Brayden Nelson, who leads the team with 22 goals and 14 assists. Nelson averages 1.7 shots on goal per game which is very impressive for 22 goals on the season, making him a very consistent sniper for the team. Nelson’s best game came April 24th at Hopkins where he scored 6 goals, which was just a small addition to an explosive performance where Wayzata won 23-3.

  “We’ve had a few big wins but have also lost a couple games we could have won,” said Nelson. One of those big wins came in overtime against Chanhassen who at the time was ranked third in the state with a 9-1 record.
  “We are putting in more practice with higher intensity and we are also starting to play more like a team,” said Nelson.
  With a 8-4 overall record, Wayzata looks to exceed last year’s team which lost the third place game to Eden Prairie. “We are definitely capable of making it to the state tournament as long as we play how we practice and listen to our coaches,” said Nelson.
