In the girls race, Hurricane's Tori Dent (18:57) and Anna Gordon (19:02) finished one-two to lead the Redskins, ranked second in the state, to a five-point win past third-ranked Winfield.
For Hurricane, the win marked a great achievement running without one of the squad's top runners in Joie Johnston, who had a quad injury.
"We're very pleased with the win," Redskins Coach Jason Henley said. "Phenomenal races out of Tori and Anna. Anna's just a freshman running very well, very fast times right now. Tori's running exactly the way we asked her to this week and she came away with her fastest time ever at Midland."
Generals sophomore Brittney McMillion placed third.
Midland finished third in the team standings to also advance.

A/AA Region 4
BUFFALO SOPHOMORE Hayden Harrison, ranked sixth in the state, won the individual regional crown, though Charleston Catholic narrowly edged the Bison by three points for the team title at Cedar Lakes.
Harrison won in 17:35, with an 11-second margin against his closest competitor, while teammate Conner Lamb took ninth. Irish seniors Caden McClanahan (third) and Philip Mallory (eighth) placed in the top 10 to lead Catholic's winning effort.
"The boys did a real good job," Irish Coach Scott Welch said. "Every single one of them improved their time from the previous meet. Basically, they did a really good, solid team effort to squeeze out that win."
For Harrison, the individual win marked the reward for his season's worth of hard work
"It was pretty fun getting first," he said. "I felt pretty good. I wanted to run a better time than I did, but it was cold and freezing. My breathing didn't feel really good."
In addition to Catholic and Buffalo, Nicholas County advanced with a third-place finish. Individually, area runners Josh McClung (Herbert Hoover) and Roane County's Caleb Pell also advanced.
In girls A/AA, eighth-ranked Ravenswood defeated No. 2 Catholic by three points for the regional championship, though both teams will advance to the state meet. Wayne senior Kylie Jo Rutherford won the individual title in 21:10, her second straight regional win.
Hailey Miller (second), Taylor Treadway (third) and Taylor Love (ninth) each placed in the top 10 for Ravenswood, while the Irish finished five among the top 18. Freshman Hannah Gacek paced Catholic with a sixth-place finish in 21:42.
Welch said Catholic's typical No. 1 Payton Mullen didn't perform at her usual time, because Mullen battled with strep throat this week, but the Irish advance to state and hopefully better marks next week.
"They've earned it, they've gotten to where they want to go," he said. "I think we're disappointed that the girls couldn't win the region, but they live to fight another a day and hopefully, by the end of next week, Payton is completely healed up, feels good, and we step up and see what the girls can do. I definitely think they're a top five team, maybe even a top three or four team."
Scott's Sheena Chambers (fifth), Samantha Graffius (seventh) and Makayla Pritchard (10th) also finished within the top 10 as the Skyhawks claimed third as a team to advance.
