The Jimmie men and women combined for six first-place finishes at the Minnesota-Morris Invite on Saturday.
The men accounted for four of the wins, with the Roemmich brothers accounting for half.
Trent notched his usual victory in the 110 hurdles (15.86), but it was his brother Scott that got the nod in the 400 version as the two had identical 56.56 times for a 1-2 JC finish. Their younger brother Derek was seventh in the 110, meaning the Roemmichs posted 3 of the top 7 times.
Jarann Johnson and Nate Christensen also collected victories.
Johnson added another notch to his belt in the 400 (51.04). William Swanson, a former Blue Jay, was fourth (51.76).
The Jimmies went 1-4-5-6 in the half-mile with Christensen’s 2:01.49 comfortably in the top spot. Spencer Kamoni, Kyle Heim and Kendall Wiltzen also were in the top six.
The throwers had another solid outing.
Rob Nelson and Brandon Bodien finished 2-3 in the shot, with Mike Findlay and Robert Brousseau following in fifth and sixth.
Nelson, Garrett Tenney and Findlay bunched in at 2-3-4 in the discus.
Tenney led the way in the hammer (5th) and Kevin Moore was also fifth in the javelin.
Freshman Kadie Savage (1:08.86), Kayla Byle (1:09.16) and Kayla Schumacher (1:12.86) made a clean sweep of the top 3 spots in the 400 hurdles to lead the Jimmie women.
It was the first time Savage finished ahead of Byle in the race.
Freshman Taylor Miller had the other first for the JC women, winning the 200 (26.85) by nearly a second.
Kayla Roemmich had the second-best discus (128) throw and fourth-best shot (38-7.75).
Courtney Oliver had the other runner-up finish by coming in second in the pole vault.
Jolynn Warnes led a 3-4-5-6 JC effort in the high hurdles in 17.59, which was run into a strong wind.
Warnes (5-1) and Taylor Brown (5-3) each had personal-bests in
the high jump, placing fourth and third, respectively.
Mallory Souder was fourth in the 1500 (5:13.06) and sixth in 800 (2:35.24), one spot behind Bernie Bachel (2:33.18). Souder’s 1500 time was a PR and she got no help from a stiff breeze that persisted during the meet.
The Jimmies host their lone home meet of the season on Saturday with the Al Cassell Relays.
The throwing events begin at 10:30 a.m. with running commencing at 11.
