The Packers (4-8 overall, 3-6 Big Nine) swept all three doubles matches.

“We played well tonight and it was good to see Reana (Schmitt) and Sam (Krueger) bounce back after a tough loss yesterday,” Austin head coach Jeff Anderson said. “Gracie Schmitt won her fifth Big 9 match at No. 1 singles. I can’t remember a player from Austin doing that in quite some time.”
