The Wahkiakum Mules softball team dropped four more games this week, but the young team continues to show improvement all around.

Last Wednesday, they lost a non-league game to Naselle 17-0.

"The score does not show the great strides of improvement this group is making," Coach Stephanie Green said. "Pitching is coming along really well with Sydney Akinsuli and Jordyn Watson. We made a few errors that made the gap widen but the steps to making plays and improvement are noticeable."

In Winlock on Thursday, the Mules lost 20-5.

"The girls held their own," Coach Green said, "and battled with great hits from Cecelia Williams and Breyonna Montgomery. Jordyn Watson and Breyonna did a great job pitching. Defensively we had one inning of struggle and decisions. Girls are doing a great job learning and really growing in developing their skills."

They lost two to Toledo on Saturday in a double header, 20-2 and 19-6.

"Girls are really improving," Coach Green said. "Swinging the bat, hitting, making plays, running the bases, pitching and catching. I couldn't be more proud of them. They had fun and they played well."

Their season will end after their game on Wednesday. A score was not available by press time.
