Wahkiakum Mule wrestler Cayden Mendez gets a win in the Wahkiakum Downriver Challenge.

The gym was packed on Dec. 21 when the Wahkiakum Mules wrestling team hosted 15 teams for the annual Down River Challenge.

"The kids did awesome this year," Coach Crystal Davis said. "We had a few hiccups at the tournament, but after we got everything figured out, it ran smoothly."
