Raiders swim team beat Mustangs, 92-86

The Hastings boys swimming and diving team earned another relatively easy Suburban East Conference win last week.

Hastings beat Mounds View, 92-86.

The meet wasn’t as close as the score would indicate. The Raiders swam exhibition only in the final two events to give the Mustangs all the points.
