Lady Mules tame Tigers
January 27, 2022
Last Thursday, the Wahkiakum Mules girls basketball team traveled to Napavine and beat the Tigers 56-41.
“We struggled a bit to play our style early, but I was really happy with how the girls responded after half,” Coach Rob Garrett said. “I thought Miya [Kerstetter] stepped up big time knocking down some huge shots and Emmie [Niemela] continued to dominate the boards and get us some easy buckets inside.
"Overall Napavine is an up and coming team; it was nice to see our girls come together after a rough start and get a convincing win.”
Kerstetter led the team with 19 points. Niemela had a double double with 13 points and 12 rebounds. Reigha Niemeyer had 12 points. Megan Leitz added six points and four steals. Courtney Carlson had four points, seven rebounds, and six assists. Bailey McKinley had two points.
