For Katie Auge, Friday night marked the beginning of a dream. For the rest of the Red Wing girls gymnastics team, it marked the end of a great season.

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.
