Last week’s swimming and diving meet between Hastings and Cretin-Derham Hall was supposed to be a pretty one-sided affair. Going into the meet, Hastings was the easy favorite.

The meet, though, was anything but easy for Hastings.

“This was a meet that was a lot harder than it should have been,” coach Katie McAlpin said. “We have a lot of our kids out not feeling well. We pulled through (but it) came down to the last relay.”

Hastings won, 95-88, after the team won the 400 freestyle relay.

The swimmer of the meet for Hastings was Allissa Smith.

“Allissa had great races even though she was not feeling the best,” McAlpin said. “Allissa has had a great season so far. She has bounced back from taking the summer off very well. She has been leading the team in many of the workouts. She is very  enthusiastic  and gets the girls going.”
