Varsity DECA · Westonka DECA Presents Second Annual ‘Mound Talks’ Event


By Emma Mack ’20

What does the student body at Westonka Public Schools have to say about being limitless? We generally don’t get a chance to hear from students. This winter, Westonka DECA has taken on the challenge of organizing an event to let students take control and share their ideas about being limitless. The event, Mound Talks, will feature students in grades 8-12 speaking about a wide variety of topics all linked to being limitless.

At Mound Westonka High School on Dec. 3, from 1 to 4 p.m., students, parents and community members are invited to hear student speakers share their passions about being limitless. Tickets are available online through the Westonka Activities Department at a cost of $5 for students and $7 for adults or are available for purchase at the door.

One of the featured speakers, Shelby Cooper, a senior at MWHS, will be talking about the importance of personal empowerment through positive self-talk. She summed it up by saying, “Your words have the power to grow flowers in your life’s garden.” This speech, among many others, is highly anticipated by the student body and community.

Other topics being shared are getting out of your comfort zone, artificial intelligence, personality tests and rising after failure. Come join us at Mound Talks on Dec. 3 to show your #WestonkaPride as you support the students of our community and hear about what you can do to be limitless!

Girls Junior Varsity Hockey, Girls Varsity Hockey · White Hawks Girls Hockey Loses Opener


The Mound Westonka/Watertown-Mayer/Southwest Christian girls hockey team lost its season opener to New Ulm on Nov. 11 in New Ulm. The final score was 3-2.

The White Hawks entered a buzzsaw, as New Ulm returned all but their starting goalie from a year ago, when they won 20 games. Their experience would show during power plays and short-handed situations throughout the game. Ten players were playing their first varsity game for the White Hawks, with a couple of others playing significant roles for the first time.

Ninth-grader Jenna Brustad got the White Hawks on the board with her first career goal midway through the first period on a nice pass from ninth-grader Brittney Davis and senior Lydia Schmidtke. With less than 20 seconds left in the first period, the White Hawks surrendered a power play goal. It was the first of three power play goals given up in the game.

The White Hawks went up 2-1 midway through the second period when ninth-grader Brooke Pioske’s wrist shot found the back of the net. Eighth-grader Kailey Niccum assisted on the play.

The White Hawks led 2-1 after two periods but would be shorthanded starting the third period due to a costly cross checking penalty. The Eagles tied the game when their best player cut inside a White Hawks defender who failed to secure the post side and caused a scrum, resulting in the goal after junior goalie Taylor Smith had stopped the first two shots. Later, the White Hawks got a checking penalty, which resulted in the Eagles getting their third power play goal of the afternoon and the victory.

Smith stood tall in goal, allowing only three goals on 41 shots. The young White Hawks controlled parts of the game until the last half of the third period, when penalties kept them on their heels and allowed the Eagles to get 17 third-period shots on goal.

The White Hawks face Minneapolis on Thursday, Nov. 16 and Holy Angels on Saturday, Nov. 18. After the varsity game on Saturday, there is a free “Skate with the White Hawks” event for 45 minutes after the game.

Come out and support the girls as they continue to improve this season.

Multiple Teams · 10th Annual Spiketacular Draws Crowds


By Katie Jo O’Gara

The 10th Annual MWHS Spiketacular drew a solid crowd for the championships on Nov. 9. The double elimination tournament saw some great competition leading up to the final match. The two teams in the finals were captained by the same captains as the final match last year. Team Larsen was able to hold onto the win.

It was a fun couple of nights and eye opening for those who don’t play volleyball. The food shelf will also be getting a donation of the items collected at the event. Thank you to all who participated.
