On Wednesday, the team traveled to Winlock and lost 46-71.
"We came out ready to play," Coach Todd Souvenir said, "and did a great job in the first quarter. Unfortunately, their size really hurt us as they either pounded it inside or were able to get offensive rebounds."
Luke Brown scored 14 points. Hank Ferguson and Evan Quigley had nine points each. Santos Wright added five. Logan LaBerge, James Anderson, K.C. Beery, and Ashden Niemeyer scored two points apiece. Casey Wilson added one point.

Beery led the Mules with nine points. Ferguson added seven. Brody Carlson scored six points. Brown and Anderson had four points apiece. Isaac Moon scored three points. Niemeyer and Quigley had two points each.
