The 2012-13 Packers are participating in team camps and tournaments this Summer, working on skill development and getting experience playing together. In the last two weeks they played at the Augustana team camp and also at the University of Minnesota, but in both events they were missing one or more of their key returning regulars.
This weekend was the first time having the full team available, and the Packers put on some impressive performances at the University of Northern Iowa, posting a 4-2 overall record. On Saturday afternoon, playing in the McLeod Center, the Packers defeated Maple Grove, a Class AAAA team from the suburban Twin Cities, by a 71-47 margin:
