Defending gymnastics state champion Northfield held Red Wing out of the top five spots in each event Friday in a 146.425-123.525 victory.

The Wingers did set a season-high in the vault and Maria Furlong led the team with an 8.825.

Furlong also led the team in floor exercise with an 8.3 while Irina Anderson had the highest finish for Red Wing with a 7.8 on the uneven bars. Molly Hart scored a 7.7225 on the balance beam and Anderson had the highest all-around finish with a 31.4 in the Wingers' last regular season home meet.

"It was a good meet for the girls," Red Wing head coach Beth Mayer said. "Everyone was competing."

The Missota Conference meet will be held next Friday in Northfield before hosting the section meet Saturday, Feb. 18 at Red Wing High School.
