“We switched our lineup to fill the doubles teams to see if we could get those and then maybe win one singles match,” Austin head coach Tom Tauchnitz said.

The match was played in extremely cold temperatures.

“Whenever they weren’t taking a shot, they had their hands in their pockets,” Tauchnitz said.
