Swimmers win two more meets

The Hastings boys swimming team had no trouble beating East Ridge last week in a Suburban East Conference dual meet. Hastings won, 93-75.

"We've been continuing to mix up our lineup and we are giving everyone a chance to swim different events," coach Gerry Rupp said. "We have enough strength this year that I can mix up events and we can still have first-place swims out of numerous people."
