Coach Scott Jackson release the following statement on Facebook, “This afternoon, my high school volleyball’s team season (and seven wonderful senior student-athlete’s high school volleyball career) ended with an incredible five-set, 13-15 loss to a great opponent. My team left every ounce of their being “on the court” this afternoon. I typically am quite sad when our season ends. And though I feel some sadness tonight, more than anything I am incredibly and profoundly proud of my team. They played with true grit, togetherness, and emotional fire the entire match – every rally, every contact. I am lucky to have the opportunity to do what I do.”

Three Senior Captains–Morgan Baufield, Kate Berg, and Kenzie Groechel have played on the Varsity team since 9th grade, and were recently featured by Channel Twelve during a Sports Jam feature.

 

Congratulations to the Boys’ Soccer team on a terrific season. #TrojanPride”

Brad Anderson steps down as head coach of Wayzata Football

Wayzata Football Coach Brad Anderson released the following statement this afternoon:

Friends & Family,

For the better part of 42 years I have been a player or coach in the Wayzata football program. The last 18 years as the head varsity coach. During my time as head varsity coach it has been an honor and privilege to also serve on the WPYF Board. I am proud to have been a part of Wayzata football and the WPYF Board for the quality of experiences provided to so many.

I have come to the decision that now is time for me to step down as the Wayzata head varsity football coach so that I may seek new adventures. Today I shared this information with the players and football staff. I am sharing this with you now so that you will know before it is public information. My replacement as varsity football head coach is Lambert Brown. He is a young coach who is passionate about Wayzata football. I wish him well and will do what I can to support him.

I want to thank every one of you. I feel blessed to have been able to fulfill one of my dreams by being the Wayzata head football coach and I could never have done so without your support. I am excited to follow other dreams and be open to what comes next. Remember, It’s the journey not the destination.

Sincerely,

Brad Anderson
Wayzata Head Varsity Football Coach
