MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota -- The Austin Packers proved this week that they can hang with the state's best. Facing two Twin Cities schools in back-to-back games, Austin fell one win short of the state title game, falling to St. Thomas Academy 9-5. 

St. Thomas took a 6-0 lead through four innings. The Packers then battled back to make it a 6-5 game going into the final inning. The Cadets responded with three runs in the 7th inning to pull away.

Austin defeated Monticello 5-1 in the third-place game later in the evening.
