The No. 1 team in Class 4A volleyball is …

Wayzata strengthened its stance at the peak of the Class 4A volleyball rankings with a big run over the weekend in the Southwest Minnesota Challenge in Marshall.

The Trojans (9-0) won five matches, closing with a victory Saturday over No. 2 Champlin Park but also going through No. 4 Lakeville North and No. 9 Maple Grove.

Challenges remain. Wayzata will play a rematch with Champlin Park on Sept. 26 at Wayzata. Before that, the Trojans will play No. 3 East Ridge on Monday at home.

Pequot Lakes replaced Cannon Falls atop Class 2A after Cannon Falls lost Saturday to Farmington. The other classes are all led by defending state champions, just as they were when the season began.
