The St. Paul Regional Saints track & field team won the SPAA banner last week at the annual meet held on its home track, with Glendon and Two Hills finishing second and third in the combined team scores category.
Out of the 13 schools from around the St. Paul area competing, Regional finished first in both the male and female team categories for a total of 1,621 points. Glendon had 1,353 points while Two Hills finished with 402.
