The Austin girls tennis team picked up a 4-3 win over Albert Lea on senior night at Paulson Tennis Courts Tuesday.

Chloe Schmitt wrapped up the win for the Packers (2-10 overall) when she beat Shelby Hanson 6-0, 4-6, 6-3 at No. 2 singles.

After losing so many close matches recently it was great to win one. I’m proud of our seniors and the time and effort they have put in,” Austin head coach Jeff Anderson said. “They will be missed.”
