The Red Wing boys track and field team won the Kasson-Mantorville Invite Thursday behind the strength of its sprinters.
Red Wing won the meet with 76 points and picked up 10 points in the 100-meter dash alone. Alex Harder, Tanner Kramp and Andre Page gave Red Wing a 1-2-3 finish in the 100. Harder won in 11.85 seconds, Kramp and Page finished in 11.89.
Northfield finished second with 66 points and the KoMets placed third with 44 points.
“The guys should be proud of what they did,” Wingers head coach Adam Nelson said.
Red Wing got wins from Trent VanLoon in the 800, Christian Leitner in the 3,200, the 4x800 relay team of VanLoon, Joe Partington, Aiden Winn and Tanner Alms and the 4x200 relay team of Page, Kramp, Darrick Johnson and Gage Lastine.
The 4x200 relay finished in 1:34.97, a time faster than the relay ran all of last season, Nelson said.
Harder and Kramp finished second and third, respectively, in the 200 while Tyler Rea placed second in the 110 and 300 hurdles.
The Wingers also found points in the field events with Jonny Banks, Alex Byrne, Tanner Kruger and Ryan Parr.

Byrne placed second in the pole vault by clearing 12 feet and finished third in the long jump with a leap of 19-3. Parr took second in the high jump, clearing 6 feet.
