The Austin boys tennis team had its team season come to an end when it lost 5-2 to No. 3 seeded Northfield in the Section 1AA tournament opener Tuesday.
Colton Detwiler and Bob Sherman picked up singles wins for the No. 6 Packers and Jeremy Olmsted lost a tough match by scores of 6-3, 4-6, 10-4.
“We played better than our previous match against them earlier in the season,” Austin head coach Troy Diekman said. “We just came up a bit short. We wish them well against Century but obviously we wish we could have continued our season.”
