"We'll keep battling to the end"

Mules have two games left in a tough season

The Wahkiakum Mules girls basketball team continues to make the most of this growing season, working through losses, getting stronger, and picking up the skills that will benefit them in the future.

In recent weeks, they’ve had to forfeit a game because they lacked players, and a game was canceled because of wintry weather.

This week, they were back at it in Kalama on Tuesday, where they lost to the Chinooks, 55-14.

“We had quite a bit of time off,” Coach Ross Lofstrom said, “so it was a challenge to get readjusted to game speed again. We’ll keep battling to the end but it will take more experience and time practicing the fundamentals to develop the good habits it will take to be competitive.”

Jessie LeFever, Amy Horman, and Payton Mendez had three points apiece for the Mules, while Samantha Dela Cruz and Brienna Cothren had two each. Amirah Abdul Kariem added one.

The Mules host Winlock on Thursday (today), and their final game of the season will be against Toutle Lake, at home, next Wednesday, Jan. 31.
