Wayzata was never even supposed to play in St. Paul this year. Heavy underdogs going into the section finals, the Trojans continued their strong late-season momentum and upset Benilde-St. Margarat's earlier this month to retain a slot in the state tournament's shrinking bracket. Wayzata's first test on the big stage came Friday night against No. 5 seed Centennial. A physical tone was set early, and Centennial took several penalties for infractions at or near the net—including one for sending goalie Aaron Dingman headfirst into the left goaltender's pipe. Thanks to a helmet that did its job, Dingman stayed in the game and went on make several outstanding (and game-saving) stops through three-plus periods of hockey. Related posts: Wayzata …

Trojans will advance to face No. 1 seed Hill-Murray tonight at the Xcel Energy Center after Chase Heising's game-winning goal. Opening face off is scheduled for tonight at about 8:15 p.m.
Wayzata High School's unpredictable run toward a state hockey championship will continue following the Trojans' 2-1 victory over Centennial Thursday night in St. Paul.

The Lake Conference hockey programs are known for their depth, talent and tradition. It's a fellowship each school appreciates year in and year out.
Last year’s Class AA state hockey tournaments were a clean sweep for the Lake Conference. The Eden Prairie boys team won the state championship, and on the girls side Minnetonka edged Edina for the title. It’s a trend within the conference for both boys and girls. Last year alone the Lake—comprised of Edina, Wayzata, Eden Prairie, Hopkins and Minnetonka—had six NHL draft picks, seven total Mr. and Ms. Hockey finalists and four state tournament participants. The Trojans had two of those draft picks. Mario Lucia was selected by the Minnesota Wild, and Tony Cameranesi was taken by the Toronto Maple Leafs. “You know you’re playing one of the best teams in the state every time you are playing a conference game,” Wayzata girls coach Becky Wacker…
