Red Wing started its season with a pair of duals, but the Wingers added an extra opponent Thursday during a trip to Austin to face the Packers and Owatonna.
The final results were a mixed bag for Red Wing, as the boys' team finished third with 76 points while the girls took second with 48 points. Owatonna was the meet winner in the boys and girls races with 18 and 22 points, respectively.
Nora Hanson was the top finisher for Red Wing, taking second place with a time of 19 minutes, 56.47 seconds. This was the third-straight meet that Hanson has placed second — bettering her time each meet as well.
