The Hudson Area Swim Association (HASA) held its fall mini-meet Friday, Sept. 30, at the Hudson Middle School pool, with 86 local athletes, ranging in ages from 6 to 22, competing in the event.

The mini-meet is a competition among HASA swimmers, and for several of the athletes this was their first swim competition. The competition kicks off the short-course season, which ends mid-March with the Minnesota State Championships in Rochester, Minn., where HASA expects to have a strong representation.
