Packers Tip Off Season Today

4 Dec

The Austin boys start their season with a couple of tough tests, as the season preview article in the Austin Post-Bulletin indicates:

Tipping off the season on Saturday afternoon versus Cedar Falls, Iowa, the Austin boys will face a stiff challenge. Cedar Falls was in the Iowa State Tournament last season and has a guard who is rumored to be a Division-I college prospect.

If that’s not enough of a challenge, then the Packers will take on another stiff test from their own state in the second game of the season. Next week on Thursday night, Austin will play host to Minneapolis Washburn, ranked in the state’s top 10 for Class AAA.

“I feel good about the team, the kids played really well in their summer league and I hope they can carry that over into the season,” Austin coach Kris Fadness said. “We have a large number of seniors and some talented young kids, so we’ll have a deep rotation. It’s a tough schedule and we’ll put the kids through the fire in the first couple of weeks.”

Read the whole article here. It also includes the full season schedule, so mark your calendar to attend as many games as you can.
