HASTINGS -- Red Wing girls basketball Coach Carl Pierson was happy with the way his team responded to an 8-0 Hastings run in the third quarter of Thursday night's nonconference tilt. Pierson also hopes the Wingers will keep the ball rolling after their 57-52 win over the Raiders. "This was certainly an exciting win," he said. "It was a quality road win. Over the next two weeks, we hope to get things going to prepare for the playoffs. Hopefully, this will get things rolling." Red Wing held a 13-12 advantage after the opening quarter.
They are sons and daughters, husbands and wives. But so, too, they are soldiers. And in Ellsworth on Thursday, about 130 men and women attached to the U.S. Army Reserve 652nd Engineer Co. said tearful goodbyes to family and friends. Their destination: Fort McCoy, Wis. Where they will go from there and how long they will be gone is unclear. There can be little doubt, though, after the send-off, that the men and women of the 652nd will be in the thoughts and prayers of many until their safe return. Dale Nelson, Ellsworth, was on hand to show his support.
Jeffrey Hinds, the son of former Red Wing residents, is an Airborne ranger serving in Vicenza, Italy. Marine Pvt. Katherine R. Larson of Red Wing is stationed at Camp Lejeune, N.C. Navy Lt. James F. Rankin, Red Wing, has transferred with his family to Europe for a three-year tour of duty. They and others were featured in Wednesday's edition in a section about our men and women in the armed forces.
After years of preparation, the meet is finally here. The Section 1A gymnastics meet will be Friday at the Red Wing High School gym.
ELLSWORTH -- Leaving your family and friends, jobs and schools isn't easy, but the leaders of the U.S. Army Reserve's 652nd Engineer Co., headquartered in Ellsworth, are confident that the men and women are prepared to serve. The unit, which is at full strength with 183 members, got word to mobilize about a week ago, and was ordered Monday to report to Fort McCoy near Sparta, Wis. The reservists left this morning. "It's a tough thing to go through," said 1st Sgt. Mike Barnhart Wednesday, as members of the unit were packing.

The Red Wing boys basketball team headed into the final minute of the first quarter without a point, and things were looking sour for Coach Kraig Ulveling and the Wingers. After winning seven straight, the Wingers appeared to be in for a huge letdown Thursday night against preseason Missota Conference favorite Shakopee. But a lot of game was left. Momentum shifted several times. Both teams hit big shots. And both teams went on significant runs. But Red Wing hit the last big shot and came away with a 43-41 victory. "That was a fun win," junior Pat Herzog said.
