What school entered the Tier II tournament with one regular-season win in 1992?

Rosemount was 1-20-1 entering sectional play in the first year of the Tier I and II experiment. A larger school playing in the Lake Conference, the Irish were relegated to Tier II based on their performance. They won all three sectional games, defeating Farmington in overtime in the finals. They then beat Mpls. Roosevelt 2-1 in overtime on Matt Hansen’s goal and then downed Cambridge 7-1 before being handled 6-1 by Greenway-Coleraine/Nashwauk-Keewatin in the Tier II finals. The Raiders entered the post-season with a lowly 10-12 mark before winning six straight to finish 16-10.

Jim Hoey was born and raised in the tiny Iron Range community of Taconite and graduated from Greenway High School. After playing for the Raiders in three state tournaments, he then matriculated to St. Mary's University in Winona, where he captained the team in his senior season. Hoey spent 34 years as a secondary social studies teacher and was head hockey coach at both Shakopee and Farmington High Schools. For 10 years, he covered high school sports writing for the Farmington Independent and the Rosemount Town Pages. After writing his first book on the Minnesota Twins, Hoey published "Puck Heaven", a trivia book on the state boys high school hockey tournament in 2011.
