Weather or not, Eden Prairie wins a lot

Posted by: Paul Klauda Updated: June 18, 2014 - 8:41 AM


Congratulations to the Eden Prairie boys’ lacrosse team on winning the state championship Tuesday afternoon with a 13-11 victory over Rosemount.

Its baseball team had a chance to make it two championships in one day for the school, but the Eagles succumbed to Mounds View pitching ace Sam Hentges and an 8-run sixth innning in a 9-0 loss at Target Field in the Class 3A title game.
 
Two first-place trophies in one day would have been fitting for the athletic powerhouse that began the school year winning its third consecutive state football championship, the first large-class school to pull off that feat.

Had not the weather intervened in recent days, perhaps Eden Prairie could have ended the year with another trio of firsts.

Its girls' lacrosse team saw its championship game shortened by lightning Saturday night, leaving Blake with an 11-7 victory. And if the baseball game had been played that night as scheduled, the Eagles' chances likely would have improved: Instead of having four days of rest, Hentges -- a fourth-round pick of the Cleveland Indians -- would have been forced to pitch just two days after he threw a complete-game shutout.

Let’s face it: Eden Prairie wins at everything, right?
 
From 2008 through 2012 Eden Prairie won the Challenge Cup, a Minnesota State High School League year-longcompetition that awards points to schools based on their success in section and state tournaments in athletics and fine arts.
 
But before calling for Eden Prairie to either join the SEC or split into 12 smaller high schools, consider this: The school that won the Challenge Cup last year, and will win it again this year, is not Eden Prairie.
 
That would be Wayzata

Here's a list of schools that won state titles in multiple sports in 2013-14:

Multi-sport team champions in 2013-14*

Wayzata: cross-country (boys and girls), swimming (boys and girls), boys’ tennis, girls’ golf, girls’ Nordic skiing, synchronized swimming

Eastview: girls’ basketball, high kick dance, jazz dance

Eden Prairie: football, boys’ lacrosse

(Includes single-class or big-school tournaments. Nine other schools each won one championship.)
