Rosemount boys track and field coach Jay Hatleli knows he is dealing with another talented roster this season.
The Irish proved that point last week in the Farmington boys invitational, winning the team title with 195 points.
They finished first out of six teams, and the closest competitor was Eagan with 103 points. Meanwhile, Rosemount won six events.
With the top six finishers scoring points in each event, Irish names were littered across the scoring.
The best example of Rosemount’s dominance in the smaller meet was in the 800-meter run. The Irish placed five runners in the top six. Each team can only gain points with three athletes in each event.
Even though Goaner Deng placed third and Kyle Mills was sixth, they weren’t included in the team’s point total. Jonathan Sampers won the event, with Shane McCallum taking second and Chris Mergens third, giving Rosemount the maximum points in the event.
Zach Vraa won the 110-meter hurdles and the 100 dash.
Tyler Rich was fifth in the 110 hurdles, while Ben Danielson was sixth. Andrew Anderson and Colton Crow finished 2-3 in the 100, supporting Vraa’s top finish.
Nathan Rock was fourth and Chandler Dye was fifth in the 1,600. Andrew Hausmann was fourth in the 400, with Clayton Notch taking sixth.
Conor Manning placed fourth in the 300 hurdles with Danielson following in fourth, and Max Busher in sixth.
Myles Phillips was second in the 200, while Anderson was fourth. In the 3,200, Calvin Lehn, Cameron Knotz and Tim Sampers placed 3-4-5, respectively.
Rosemount also won the 4x100 and 4x400 relays.
Joe Bjorklund, Brandt Berghuis and Nick Liska were 3-4-5, respectively, in the shot put. Berghuis, Ben Rossini, and Bjorklund then went back-to-back-to-back in the discuss, placing 4-5-6.
Brandon Wolf won the high jump with Jordan Maeck taking fifth.
Jake Nelson was second in the pole vault. Tony Marthaler was fourth and Micah Marshall was sixth.
Leo Lakpa finished fourth in the long jump and Kevin Larson was sixth. Stephen Sawyer and Marius Lewis placed 5-6, respectively, in the triple jump
