The Austin boys tennis team opened its season a little shorthanded as it lost 6-1 at Mankato West Thursday.

The Packers (0-1 overall, 0-1 Big Nine) played without six of their top 12 players due to Spring Break, but they were still able to force a third set in three of their six losses.

The No. 3 doubles team of Josh Brehmer and Max Deyo lost 6-1, 4-6, 6-1.
