Mule defense held the Ducks to nine points on Tuesday. Here, Charlie Ashe put some pressure on a Toutle Lake guard in the second quarter.

The Wahkiakum Mules girls basketball team proved to be hard to beat at home after sweeping four teams in competition this week.

Last Wednesday, the Lady Mules clobbered Winlock 71-9.

"I thought the girls worked really hard tonight from beginning to end," Coach Rob Garrett said. "We did a good job of working on our position on defense and anticipating. It was nice to see everyone just go out and enjoy the game."

Macie Elliott led scorers with 21 points and eight steals. Paige Mace had 10 points. Mckensi Fluckiger had nine points, nine rebounds, six assists and six steals. Ellie Leitz added nine points and six rebounds. Maddy Mace scored seven points. Jansi Merz had six, Alex Watkins score four, Charlie Ashe added three, and Nai'a Freeman finished the game with two points.

Overall, the Lady Mules stole the ball 36 times.

Winlock 4 2 2 1 --9

Mules 25 20 17 9 --71

On Friday, the Mules beat Toledo 60-46, and Elliott topped a personal record, scoring 34 points.

"I was really happy with the girls defensive effort," Garrett said. "I thought we crashed the boards better than we have so far this year. Offensively, we struggled, and Macie took over. She had a phenomenal all around game."

Elliott also had seven rebounds, five assists, and six steals. Ashe had seven points, M. Mace scored five, Merz and Watkins had four apiece, Leitz and P. Mace had three. Leitz also had seven rebounds and two blocks.

The Lady Mules had 37 rebounds overall.

Mules 16 17 16 11 --60

On Saturday, the Lady Mules hosted Friday Harbor and won easily 66-12.

"Awesome game," Garrett said. "Best defense we have played in a long time. This group is already figuring out how to play our defense which could be scary down the road. The girls are having a blast and working extremely hard. It was a balanced scoring attack from across the board.
