The Hastings girls swimming and diving team lost a close meet to East Ridge on Thursday, 95-91.

“It was a hard meet for us,” coach Katie McAlpin said. “We were missing many of our girls again for this meet.”

The swimmer of the meet for Hastings was Abbie Gjelhaug.

“Abbie is one of our captains this year,” McAlpin said. “She has been working hard and been a good leader all year. Abbie had season best times in her times for this meet. She is on a great track to have a spectacular end of the season.”
