Girls soccer: Hastings ties Jefferson, loses to Hill-Murray
Teams can learn a lot from a loss, and it appeared that on Tuesday of last week, that rule applied to the Hastings Raiders girls soccer team. The blue and gold rebounded from a tough 3-1 loss to Visitation a few days earlier to tie Bloomington Jefferson, 1-1. “That was a good...

The field was miserable, but the effort was off the charts. That’s what Hastings boys soccer coach Jamie Swanson was able to take away from Thursday’s nice 3-2 win over Hill-Murray on the road. “It was a wet and beat-up field,” Swanson said. “I’ve never seen anything...

Raiders boys soccer team adds one win, one loss to season

Raiders win two boys soccer MEC matchups
The Hastings boys soccer team has won two Metro East Conference games in a row. While that’s certainly a modest win streak, two league victories in back-to-back games isn’t something the team has been used to. In fact, the Raiders were winless in MEC play coming into last week’s...

Hastings boys soccer team has 0-2 league mark thus far
The new Metro East Conference hasn’t been kind so far to the Hastings boys soccer team. The Raiders have lost to South St. Paul and North St. Paul to kick off the year. Both of those teams, though, are among the league’s top three so far, so there’s still hope that the Raiders...

So far, life in the Metro East Conference has been a good fit for Raider girls soccer team
What a difference a year makes. This season, playing in a conference more suited for their size school, the Metro East, the Hastings Raiders girls soccer team has a solid 3-1 record. Winning three conference games a season in the former Suburban East Conference seemed like an impossibility. This...
