At Friday’s annual Hastings invitational, again a triangular this year, Hastings split its matches, beating Woodbury and then losing in a close match to a strong Rosemount team.

At fourth doubles, Maddie Carlson and Abbie Williams beat Ambika Patpatia and Mandy Morris, 1-6, 6-3, 7-5.
Rosemount beat Hastings, 5-3, thanks in large part to their dominance at singles. The Irish won all four spots in singles play.
