The Hastings girls swimming team had no trouble beating Park last week, jumping out to a 91-43 lead before swimming exhibition-only in the final three events to make the score close at 91-81.


"The girls did well," Hastings coach Katie McAlpin said. "They had a good time swimming the off events."

The swimmer of the meet was Megan Jahnke, who dropped more than seven seconds for a personal best and section qualifying time in the 500 freestyle.

"I am looking forward to what she can do in her 500 in the future," McAlpin said.
