A near-flooded course wasn't enough to deter the Red Wing boys' golf team Friday as the Wingers cruised past Austin for a Big Nine Conference dual victory, 319-376. “The boys played well. The course was extremely wet. It was pouring rain there yesterday and it was pretty much underwater,” said Wingers head coach Nate Gale. “The guys had to manage their shots and they were forced to play longer because the ball wasn't rolling. The boys played well considering the conditions.”
In a doubleheader Friday against Glenville-Emmons, Randolph pitcher Lindsey Grant struck out eight and limited the Wolverines to no hits and a walk in a 15-0 Game 1 victory. Then in Game 2, Morgyn Otte struck out eight and gave up just one hit to G-E as the Rockets completed the sweep with a 17-0 victory.
Zumbrota-Mazeppa scored once in the third, twice in the fifth and twice in the seventh to upend Goodhue, 5-1, on Thursday. Kevin Nordquist and Isaiah Nolte both scored twice for the Cougars, with Nolte and W Heitman both coming through with two hits. Taylor Buck scored on a wild pitch in the sixth inning, and Casey Ryan tripled and Jack Gadient doubled and singled to highlight Goodhue's offense.
Red Wing got a solid start from Ben Domagala, but Mahtomedi manufactured just enough offense in a 3-2 Zephyrs victory on Friday. Domagala went all seven innings for the Wingers, giving up eight hits and three earned runs with four innings of four or fewer batters faced. Mahtomedi struck out four times and walked just once off Domagala. But a sacrifice bunt in the top of the first inning set up the Zephyrs' first run, and Mahtomedi scored twice more in the fifth thanks to a seven-pitch walk to lead off the frame and three-straight singles to follow.
By the time Red Wing caught up to Winona’s pitching, it was too late. The Winhawks managed to strike out 10 Wingers, and Red Wing’s only hit came in the bottom of the fifth inning as Winona pulled out a 10-0 five-inning Big Nine Conference victory Friday at Red Wing High School.
With a trio of wins from Madisyn Lyons, Paige Patterson and the 4x400-meter relay, the Red Wing girls' track and field team placed fourth out of six teams at the Farmington Girls Invite Thursday.

Stephanie Herzog had a hole-in-one on No. 17, putting an exclamation point on her 4-under par 66 to lead Red Wing to a 294-388 victory over Park on Monday. Leah Herzog came in with a 1-under 69, with Sophia Yoemans (72) and Sydney Flack (97) also scoring for the Wingers. Head coach Mark Herzog said the conditions were great for scoring. “Great weather,” Herzpg said. “(And) no wind.” On Tuesday, Red Wing hosts an invitational at Mississippi National Gold Links.
The Kenyon-Wanamingo girls and the Stewartville boys were both victorious on Tuesday in the Zumbrota-Mazeppa invitational. The Knight girls were paced by freshman Shelby Noah, who finished in a tie for fifth with a round of 106.

The Red Wing girls’ track and field team cruised past Rochester Mayo and Winona on Tuesday in a three-team Big Nine Conference triangular in Rochester.

Lyons and teammate Paige Patterson had 1-2 finishes in the long jump (15 feet, 4.5 inches; 14-11.75) and triple jump (32-7; 32.6.75). Lyons was also second in the high jump at 4-10.
