Hastings has high hopes as softball sections open
The Raiders softball team opened section play this week with high hopes.
After finishing third in the Suburban East Conference behind a 12-6 record, Hastings opened Section 1AAA play on Wednesday in a game played after the Star Gazette went to press.
Hastings coach Dean Robinson had high hopes going into the game, where the Raiders drew a No. 3 seed and squared off against the winner of the Red Wing-Northfield game.
"We've had a great season," he said.
