Swimming: Raiders have no trouble with Rangers

The Hastings girls swimming team had no trouble beating Forest Lake on Thursday, getting out to a big lead en route to an 88-77 win.

Hastings won every event.

The swimmer of the meet for the Raiders was sophomore Kate Reilly.

"She had a great first meet," Hastings coach Katie McAlpin said. "Her individual times were right on. She is going to be a great asset to our team this year."

Hastings plays host to Cretin-Derham Hall in the first home meet of the season, set for 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the Hastings Middle School pool.

The team also has a fund-raiser planned for Saturday, Sept. 11. From 8 a.m. until 10 a.m. at the 2nd Street Depot in downtown Hastings, diners can get sausage, eggs and unlimited pancakes for $6.
