Rebekah Neves gets a hit in the Lady Mules' four set loss to Kalama on Tuesday.

The Wahkiakum High School volleyball team won two and lost one last week.

Last Wednesday, the team traveled to Napavine and won in four sets, 25-13, 22-25, 28-26, and 25-21.

"Napavine has a couple of good weapons and aggressive serving which kept us on our toes," Coach Kayli Hurley said, "but in the end, my kids came out with scrap and fire to take home the win."

Solana Stanley had 10 digs. Jordyn Watson had four kills and "stellar serve receive." Jansi Merz had 13 kills and Rebekah Neves had three. Naia Freeman had four blocks.

On Thursday, the Lady Mules hosted Toledo and won in three sets: 25-11, 25-13, and 25-12.

The energy of the bench has been instrumental to the Lady Mules' success this year.

"We came out with a lot of fire and energy against Toledo," Coach Hurley said. "My bench was exploding with noise and that helped fuel the girls on the court."

Merz had 13 kills and one block. Stanley had a 2.00 average out of a possible 3.00 on serve receive and two aces. M.J. Neves had six aces and 15 assists.

The team hosted Kalama Tuesday and lost in four sets: 20-25, 25-21, 19-25, and 15-25.

"Overall it was a good match," Coach Hurley said. "Kalama has some big weapons and my girls showed a lot of scrap."

Watson had seven kills, three aces, and 13 digs. Freeman had four kills and one block, and Merz had seven kills and three blocks. Stanley had 13 digs, M.J. Neves had 13 assists, and Shantelle Shervey had 11 digs.

The Lady Mules travel to Rainier on Monday and play their final game of the regular season at home on Wednesday, hosting Winlock.
