Hastings lost its season-opening gymnastics meet to North St. Paul on Wednesday, Dec. 3. North finished with a score of 126.85, while Hastings had 96.875 points.

“We are such a new team and 90 percent of the girls have never even competed before, so they didn’t really know what to expect,” coach Jeanne Kasel said. “They did a great job for their first meet and they got a good taste of what the meets are all about. They were  excited to get back to work and keep pushing themselves for the next meet.”
