The Hastings girls soccer season came to an end Tuesday night in Rosemount with a 2-0 loss to the Irish.

Hastings entered the Section 3AA tournament as the No. 5 seeded team. Rosemount was seeded No. 4.


Coach of the year

Hastings coach Joanne Teigland learned over the weekend she had been selected as the section's Coach of the Year. She earned the second-most wins in her high school coaching career this season, and the Hastings win total of five games is four more than the team won last year.

"It's a big honor to win an award like that when you're in the kind of coaches we have in our section," Teigland said. "Just to be considered was an honor."

Teigland quickly deflected the praise and redirected it to the members of the team.

"This core group of girls played together their entire career," Teigland said. "There was an energy coming in to the season this year. There was a level of concentration we had, too, that we hadn't had for a while. This group of girls is so coachable."

SEC action

Hastings closed out the regular season with a 2-1 win over Forest Lake on Thursday, Oct. 6.

Jenna Sorenson scored one goal, and Nicole Hollar scored the other, assisted by Maria Rother.

"That was a must-win situation for us," Teigland said. "It was good for the seniors to go out with a win in their last home game, and it was good to end the regular season with a win."

"The girls kept the pressure on all game - we had a lot of shots on goal. Torri (Holm) made some great plays in goal for us, too."

Hastings lost to Woodbury on Oct. 4, 8-0.
