The Austin boys tennis team pulled off a 4-3 over Rochester John Marshall on the road.

Austin’s No. 2 singles player Patrick Wagner sealed the victory on the last match of the day with a 7-5, 6-4 win.

“Patrick was clutch today,” Austin head coach Thomas Tauchnitz said. “When I told him the meet was tied and we needed him he was down 4-3 in the second set. He looked at me and said ‘I got this coach.’ He rattled off three straight games to win his match.”
