The Hastings girls' lacrosse team finished their regular season 4-9 overall and 1-7 in the Metro East Conference.

The Raiders lost to second-place Tartan on May 15 16-10 and fell to MEC champion Hill-Murray 16-6 on May 18. Last week, they hosted Mahtomedi on May 23 and lost 15-3. They were then edged out by rival North St. Paul 9-6 in their last regular season game on May 25.

Hastings received a no. 8 seed for section 3 playoffs. They hosted no. 9 seed Minnehaha Academy on May 31, the results of which were not available at the time of printing. The winner of that game travels to top-seeded Cretin-Derham Hall on June 2. Should they advance beyond CDH, they would play the winner of Rosemount and Eagan on June 6.
