The fan support for the Austin Packers has been huge this year, with the biggest and loudest crowd yet for Austin’s Big Nine-clinching win over Owatonna a week ago today. When the final buzzer sounded, the students stormed the court (you might want to expand to full screen on this one):
The home crowd for Wednesday night’s opening-round win over Faribault was great too, with the gym almost full despite the light turnout of Falcon fans.
Tomorrow night at 7 p.m. the Packers continue their tournament march with their last home game of the season as they host the #5 seed, Winona, with a trip to the Section 1AAA finals on the line.
The Packers are 12-0 at home for the year, and will be looking to stay perfect. The Winhawks will be bringing a crowd, so it’s important for the Sixth Man to show up early and loud.
