The Austin boys tennis team stepped up when it mattered to beat Fairmount 5-2 on the road Tuesday.

The doubles teams of Samuel Mata and Gavin Matyas and Timothy Perez and Marcos Castro, and singles player Lucas Rust all won in three sets to give the Packers (2-5 overall) the win.

“We were up early 3-1 but the three matches left on court all went three sets and it could have gone either way,” Austin head coach Jeff Anderson said. “I was proud of how Sam and Gavin came back after losing the first set and found a way to get the win.”
