Since his sophomore year, Nick Argento says he’s grown into his body, which has helped him succeed on the mound to start what is now his senior season at Wayzata.
That development has shown, with Argento allowing just one run and striking out nine batters, helping the Trojans secure a 4-1 win over Minnetonka Friday night at Wayzata High School.
“My sophomore year I was just a long, lengthy kid,” Argento said. “I’ve focused and put some work into the weight room.”
The senior added he also feels like he’s an actual pitcher this time around.
“My sophomore year, I would just throw super hard. Now I feel like I have a slider, curveball, changeup, a mix that matches the velocity,” he said.
Senior Nick Argento allowed just one run through six innings, helping Wayzata, ranked ninth in the Class 4A coaches' poll, secure a 4-1 victory over No. 3-4A Minnetonka Friday night at Wayzata High School.

Brendan Dieleman cracked the biggest hit for the Trojans in the first inning, a two-out single, which brought home two runs.
