The Austin Packers boys’ tennis team was on the road for a Big 9 Conference match at Northfield Thursday, and it was the Raiders coming away with a 6-1 victory.
Cole Hebrink earned the win in the match for Austin at No. 2 singles, as he defeated Oden Hoffs of Northfield in straight sets 6-1, 6-3, and Joey Schammel of the Packers battled Ryan Will of Northfield for three sets at No. 1 singles, as Will took the first set 6-1, while Schammel won the second set by the identical 6-1 score. Will, though, prevailed in the third set 10-8, and the rest of the wins for the Raiders were in straight sets.
Austin returns to action in a Big 9 Conference triagular at Faribault Saturday against the host Falcons and Owatonna, with the action set to start at 9:00 a.m.
