Packer girls tennis team scores a win in Albert Lea

The Austin girls tennis team served up another big win when it topped Albert Lea (0-8 overall, 0-8 Big Nine) 6-1 in AL Saturday.

The Packers (4-4 overall, 4-4 Big Nine) have now won two matches in a row and they are sitting in sixth place in the Big Nine, a place they haven’t been in a long time.

“It was a good solid win today,” Austin head coach Jeff Anderson said. “We came out a little flat but played our way into the match. It feels good to be back at .500 and we are looking forward to a good match Tuesday at Mankato East.”

Austin swept all three doubles matches and its top three singles players – Reana Schmitt, Chloe Schmitt and Gracie Schmitt, who are sisters, – all netted wins.
