Boys Track & Field
2024 Season Preview
The 2024 Roncalli Track and Field team has the potential to be one of the top teams in the state. The team boasts top competitors and potential state qualifiers in every event.
Leading the way is senior thrower Seth Brosseau. After his junior year, Brosseau was named an Indiana Track and Field All Star, and he broke the school record in the discus at 172’3. He opened his senior season heaving the shot put 62’11, which ranked him in the top 10 nationally. The team will look to sophomore throwers Casey Horton and Carter Sitzman to develop as varsity scorers.
Ben Brandenburg is a defending Circle City Conference Champion in the high jump and long jump and potential state meet scorer in both jumps. He ranks 6th and 10th on the Roncalli all-time list in those events. Senior Bryce Himelick should also be a Regional scorer in long jump, giving the Royals a strong 1-2 punch in the event. Additionally, Brandenburg ranks 3rd all-time in the 100m. There is potential for a state-qualifying 4X100m relay with Brandenburg, sophomore speedsters Liam Kidwell and Alex Beard and senior newcomer Eli Miller.
Senior Brady Rossman (#6 all-time) returns to defend his Circle City Conference pole vault title. Rossman should be a high point scorer in big meets such as Conference, County, Sectional and Regional as well as a potential state qualifier.
The team’s hurdlers feature senior Dom Morelli, who ranks 8th in the 110HH and 7th in the 300IH on the all-time list and won the 2023 Conference title in the 110s. Sophomore Anthony Litz was one of the top freshmen 300m hurdlers in 2023 and should be a scorer at the Regional level. Junior newcomers Eli Lauck and Alex Winchester are also potential varsity scorers in both events.
Junior Sam Vaught and senior Ezra Littell both had breakout seasons in 2023. Vaught posted the #8 all-time performance in the 3200m while leading the team with the fastest 800m, 1600m and 3200m. Senior Liam Huff, junior John Wagner and senior Jack Davis will also be relied on as distance scorers.
Vaught and Littell will team up with sophomores Litz, Nick Woodburn or Owen Lewis to form a 4X800m relay that is a potential state qualifier. Litz, Lewis and sophomore Cole Huff will handle the 400m and 4X400m events.
