Lady Mules go cold in loss to Union High
January 6, 2022
Last Thursday, the Wahkiakum Mules girls basketball team traveled to Camas to take on a 4A Union High School team. They lost 50-43, bringing their overall record to 7-4.
“We scheduled a game pretty last minute,” Coach Rob Garrett said. “We started off really hot and took an early lead of nine after the first quarter. By half, they had cut it to six and tied it up at the end of the third. In the fourth quarter they got even hotter from the outside and we went ice cold.
"Our ball movement has been really good, but our movement away from the ball needs to be better and we need to attack the middle more. This was another good learning opportunity for us that will hopefully help us play more fundamental come league play.”
Emerald Niemela led scoring with 12 points and seven boards. Reigha Niemeyer added 10 points and four steals. Miya Kerstetter had seven points and eight rebounds. Bailey McKinley had six points, Megan Leitz had five, and Courtney Carlson finished the game with two.
Lady Mules 15 8 10 10 --43
Union 6 11 16 17 --50
The Lady Mules traveled to Onalaska on Wednesday for a league game, but the score was not available by press time. The team hosts the Winlock Cardinals on Friday.
