Mule basketball alumni game raises $2955
Mule Alumni gathered on Saturday to put on a show for a crowd of supporters in an event organized by Wahkiakum High School student Maya Stanley to raise money for the Lady Mules Basketball team.
The red team of Brandon Olsen, Bobby Helms, Aaron Colby, Rob Garrett, Scott Hendrickson, Brian Stanley, Tanner Tramblie and Tyler Heagy faced the boys in black, Shane Kehrli, Eli McElroy, Steven and Steve Doumit, Travis and Ty Bain, David McNally and Troy Howard.
The black team beat the red team 92-82 in regulation time.
The oldest participant, Steven Doumit of the class of ’83, had a smile on his face after the game but admitted he was headed home to sit in the hot tub.
The game, silent auction, concessions and other activities raised $2955.
The money will pay for team travel gear and allow the Lady Mules to attend High Mountain Hoops team camp in Bend, Oregon this summer, where they will camp, play lots of basketball and do a little whitewater rafting.
“We raised a lot,” Stanley said. “It was awesome. I just want to thank everyone who donated and came to support and play. Basketball means a lot to me and to have raised that much in one night was a huge accomplishment.”
She is planning to attend Washington State University in the fall, where she will study business and marketing.
