The Hastings girls swimming and diving team is heading to Rochester this week to compete at the Section 1AA meet.
Swimmers and divers will be seeking to qualify for the upcoming state meet.
The preliminary round is set for Nov. 8 at the Rochester Rec Center. Finals are planned for Saturday, Nov. 10.
Teams in the section along with Hastings are Farmington, Owatonna, Rochester Century, Rochester Mayo, Rochester John Marshall and Winona.
The top two finishers in each event automatically qualify for the state meet. More swimmers can qualify if they finish faster than the time standard.
The state meet is Nov. 15-17 at the University of Minnesota Aquatic Center.
Last year Hastings placed 14th at the state meet.
