January 30, 2020
The Wahkiakum Mules boys basketball team split games this week, but continues to show great promise.
Last Wednesday, the Mules lost to Adna at home 65-49.
"Adna played with a lot of energy on both ends of the floor and we struggled to match up with Braden Thomas inside," Coach Todd Souvenir said. "He is a very physical and athletic player."
Jake Leitz had his biggest game of the year, scoring 27 points. Logan LaBerge had 11 points. Brody Carlson added seven points. Brodie Avalon and K.C. Beery finished the game with two points apiece.

On Monday, the team traveled to Rainier and won 47-26.
"It was an ugly game for both teams offensively," Coach Souvenir said, "but I thought we moved the ball well in the third which led to 19 of our 47 points and secured the win."
LaBerge scored 14 points. Leitz had a double double with 12 points and 12 rebounds. Carlson added 10 points. Beau Rose scored four points. Avalon had three. Beery scored two points and pulled down six rebounds. Ashden Niemeyer added two points and nine rebounds.
