Lady Mules play hard but lose double header
The Wahkiakum Mule softball team faced Morton White Pass at home last Thursday and lost two games, but Coach Cindy Fudge had high praise for her team.
The Mules dropped the first game 0-15.
“I give a lot of credit to these girls,” Fudge said. “They made a valiant effort with three starters out. Shelby Robinson moved from right field to second base, Jem Dyer moved from left field to shortstop, and Morgan Elliott moved from shortstop to catcher. They didn’t complain. All the kids stepped up and gave their very best effort.
“Allison Kirby played a wicked left field,” Fudge continued. “She had an amazing catch out there, and Tori Wegdahl was a workhorse on the mound. She was stellar even in defeat.”
Kirby and Robinson each had a hit.
Game two went better but the Mules lost 5-17.
Fudge praised freshman Sidney Hansen for her play at third.
“She’s an animal,” Fudge said.
“I was proud of every single kid on the team. No coach could ask for more. This group of girls gives the Mules a good name.”
The Mules were scheduled to play at Toutle Lake on Monday, but no report had been received by press time.
