Raiders beat Mustangs again
Against the two top teams in the Suburban Conference, the Hastings Raiders have played their best softball. That leaves coach Dean Robinson feeling encouraged this week as the regular season starts to wind down.
On Monday, Hastings beat Mounds View, 3-0, on a two-hitter by pitcher Courtney Van De Velde. The sophomore pitcher faced just 23 batters, two more than the minimum, and struck out six.
