After suffering a heartbreaking loss to Simley last week, the Hastings boys swim and dive team were on a mission to win at Tartan. The final score was 91-84 in favor of Hastings, but the Raiders went to exhibition mode after the 500 freestyle. That means they did not earn any points the rest of meet to make the score less lopsided.
“Everyone is adapting very well to the COVID protocols set in play by the State high School League,” Head Coach Gerry Rupp said.
Rupp also took the opportunity to get swimmers into races in which they don’t normal- ly compete.
Swimmers of the meet were Caleb Urban, a ninth grader, for winning two very close races, and Tristan Herbst, a seventh grader, for time his time drops.
All three divers had season best scores.
Next up is St. Thomas at home on the 28th.
“This could be a great match-up. They are somewhat down in talent this year due to graduating 12 seniors from last year’s team and they do not have any divers,” Rupp explained The meet will start at 6:15, and due to COVID restrictions, no spectators will be allowed at home meets as of right now.
