The Austin girls’ basketball team has more to celebrate than a win over Albert Lea Thursday night.

The Packer girls booster club had success hosting “Paint the Gym Pink.” Though the money has yet to be counted, booster club co-chair Mary Svoboda said the gym was packed full of pink.

“We had a great crowd there last night,” she said.
