The Big 9 has been a battle this year and the Packers have competed well, but came up short on Thursday night to Mankato East, 69 to 65. The Packers held a 1 point lead at the half but had 5 minute scoreless stretch that saw East pull ahead and win by 4. The Big 9 has some great teams this year and this has provided the Packers great opportunity to play in some great contests. Due to the level of competition Austin has played this year, we are still rated 13th in the QRF rankings.
Austin has two more regular season home games left this season. Tuesday, Feb. 17th, will be Senior Night, as the Packers take on the Albert Lea Tigers. Friday night they will finish the regular season at home vs Owatonna.
