Royals too much for Raider swimmers
The perfect season for the Hastings girls swimming team has come to an end. It did so against a very familiar, and very likely, foe.
The Royals beat the Raiders Thursday night, 99-82.
"We didn't swim so well," Hastings coach Katie McAlpin said. "We gave it a shot, but this was not a great meet for us. We brushed it off and look forward to the next one."
Two-a-day practices have continued for the Raiders, leaving the team tired and sore, McAlpin said.
"The girls are pushing through it and continuing to train hard," she said. "We keep reminding them you get out of it what you put in. It will all be worth it in the end."
