Softball: Raiders are one win away from state tournamentThe Hastings High School softball team is one win away from the state tournament.
The Hastings High School softball team is one win away from the state tournament.
Hastings beat Winona, 5-2, and then Rochester Mayo, 8-1, to advance.
Both games were held Friday night in Austin.
Hastings will play at 7 p.m. Tuesday in Austin for the section championship.
The Raiders will play the winner of the game between Winona and Mayo.
If Hastings wins, they'll qualify for the state tournament for the third consecutive year.
If Hastings were to lose the 7 p.m. game Tuesday, they'd still have a shot at qualifying for the state tournament. They'd have a rematch with their Tuesday opponent on Thursday, with the winner advancing to the state tournament.
