It's been a good volleyball rivalry between Hopkins and Wayzata in recent seasons, with Wayzata generally having the upper hand.
This fall, Hopkins is off to a great start, and the Royals continued that Thursday night.
They swept Wayzata 25-16, 25-22, 25-16 in their Lake Conference opener.
Hopkins improves to 11-1 with the win; their only loss came in the Southwest Minnesota Challenge tournament last weekend to top-ranked Lakeville North.
