ST. PAUL — The Century 4x100 girls relay team was dynamic on Friday at Hamline University, winning the race at the Elite Meet.

The combination of Favor Omoijuanfo, Madison Habberstad, Sarrah Lindner and Megan Lund finished the race in 49.04. That same group of runners landed second at the state meet a year ago in 48.28.

The Elite Meet is invitation-only, gathering most of the state's top individuals and relays in each event.

The Century 4x100 team was one of two Rochester-area representatives to win an event at the Elite Meet. The other was Pine Island defending state pole vault champion Jarod White. White cleared 15-feet-3 on Friday. He went 15-9 at state a year ago when he set a state record, for Class A and AA.

Century's Sarrah Lindner also had a big meet. She was third in the triple jump (36-3 1/4) and fifth in the long jump (16-8 1/2).

Other top girls finishers from the Rochester area were Zumbrota-Mazeppa's Katrina Sortland (fourth in the 800, 2:17.01), GMLOKS' Anika Reiland (fourth in the 200, 26.74; eighth in the 100, 12.48) and Z-M's Natasha Sortland (eighth in the 1,600, 5:03.37). The Century 4x400 relay team of Kaia Berry, Addson Clarey, Madison Ohm and Gordon was sixth, in 4:09.70.

Besides White winning the pole vault, the other top showing from a Rochester-area boys athlete came from Mayo's Yaih Marial. He placed second in the high jump, clearing 6-6. Century's Nathan Nelson was third in the pole vault (14-6), Triton's Owen Petersohn was fourth in the 110 hurdles (15.16) and fifth in the 300 hurdles (40.55), and Mayo's Cayden Holcomb was fifth in the 110 hurdles (15.29) and sixth in the pole vault (13-0).
