The Hastings Raiders wrestling team dropped their first dual of team state to second-seeded Anoka 39-22. Anoka got out to a large lead in the lower weights and it was too much for the Raiders to make up in the upper weights. Many had pegged Anoka as the team to beat this year even before Apple Valley was upset by Shakopee. Hastings goes on to wrestle Stillwater right away in the consolation semifinals. The winner wrestles again at 5 p.m. in the consolation finals.
