Lady Mules fall to Toutle, Adna

The Wahkiakum Mules volleyball team lost two games at home this week, bringing their record to 2-4 in league and 5-8 overall.

Last Thursday, the Lady Mules lost to Toutle Lake at home in three sets, 26-28, 18-25, and 16-25.

"We started out with tons of energy that slowly petered off as the match progressed," Coach Kayli Hurley said.

Reigha Niemeyer had a great all around game, Hurley said, with 13 kills, 100 percent serving, and nine digs. Hurley praised Helen Lewis for great positive energy. Lewis had two kills.

Other standouts included Miya Kerstetter with six kills and Amirah Abdul Kariem with eight digs.

On Tuesday, the team hosted Adna and lost in three sets, 8-25, 19-25, and 14-25.

"We flat out did not show up to play tonight," Coach Hurley said. "A shred of hope showed itself during the second set, and I thought we were pulling out of it, but no. We were plagued with unforced errors due to a lack of focus. My bench was fire though. They are so awesome and selfless."

"Hopefully we can put tonight's lessons in our pockets and move forward with success," she added.

Niemeyer and Lewis had two kills each and Kerstetter had three aces.

The Lady Mules travel to Winlock today (Thursday). Their regular season ends next week with a home game on Monday against Kalama and an away game on Wednesday with Morton/White Pass.

The district tournament begins Saturday, October 29.
