Getting Ready for the 2007-2008 Season

10 Nov

You may be hearing the faint sounds of basketballs bouncing on the court.  That is the sound of boys from Austin High School loosening up and refining their basketball skills.  It is not unusual to see more than a dozen guys playing pick up games at Ove Berven.  The weight room is not an unfamiliar place either.  The guys will be bigger and faster this year due to their own diligence of effort in staying in shape year-round. 

Dust off your stadium cushions and join the guys in their first intra-squad scrimmage on December 1st (time yet to be announced) at Austin High School.  It will be a chance to meet the players of this year’s squad, followed by dinner in the Austin High School cafeteria.  Come and get an autograph from your favorite player!

Their first game is a non-conference game against Saint Louis Park at 3:30 pm on Saturday, December 8th.  It’s a great day to be a Packer!  See you there!

The Packers have struggled on the road but return to Austin to host the Mayo Spartans this Friday.  These are a great group of guys who go out each week and play with a passion that says – “We aren’t quitting!”  So let’s wear our “red” and show our good, old fashioned, home town, Austin Packer Pride!

Austin Packers vs Owatonna Huskies

17 Dec

The Packers hung on in the first half, but after losing two Austin players to foul trouble the #5 ranked Huskies were too much to handle down the final stretch.  James Maxfield scored a team high 10 points for the Pac pounding the boards.  The team again had fairly balanced scoring with John Stevens 9, Peter Swan 8, Bouy Bichok 8, Nick Stackenwalt 7, Tyler Christiansen 7 and Kevin Hermann 3 for a final score 52-64.  The Packers will play in a holiday tourney at Lakeville South High School on December 28th.  Austin plays Shokopee at 6 pm.  See you there.
