Jordyn Watson lined up a hit in the second set of the Lady Mules home opener against MWP. The crowd was small, largely limited to the families of athletes, because of guidelines for school sports during the pandemic.

It's been a long wait for Wahkiakum athletes, but competition finally began again on Tuesday.

Shantelle Shervey gets the dig in the Mules three set win against MWP.

The Lady Mules volleyball team made the most of their first outing, a home opener against Morton-White Pass, who were also playing their first game of the season.

Wahkiakum won easily in three sets, 25-11, 25-7, and 25-15, according to Coach Kayli Hurley.

Jansi Merz had nine kills, and Megan Leitz and Jordyn Watson added five kills apiece. MJ Neves had 15 assists. Arrow Rose served seven aces, and Reigha Niemeyer was responsible for seven digs.

"It was a good overall initial effort," Hurley said. "We had some success and found some things that could use some growth, but overall we were thankful to have the opportunity to compete."

The junior varsity team beat MWP in three sets as well, 25-20, 25-13, and 25-17.
