A young team digs in for the long haul

"[They] are focused on the marathon," says Coach Lofstrom

The Wahkiakum Mules girls basketball team lost two more games this week to bring their record to 0-7 in conference and 1-8 overall.

"We are a very young team and when the losses start stacking up it can be pretty disheartening," Coach Ross Lofstrom said. "The players have remained positive and focused on getting better every day. Almost all of the players have multiple years left so are focused on the marathon and building on fundamental skills."

"These girls have shown a lot of heart and growth all season, so those are success for me," he added.

Last Wednesday, the Mules traveled to Morton/White Pass and lost, 68-17.

Brienna Cothren scored eight points to lead the Mules. Jessie LeFever had five points. Amirah Abdul-Kariem and Payton Mendez added two points each.
