Parker Leitz took to the air for two against Rainier.

The single game scoring record at Wahkiakum High School keeps climbing, and so do the Wahkiakum Mules basketball team's postseason dreams.

The Mules finished off their regular season last week with an 85-39 win against Onalaska behind a huge contribution from senior Kyler Sause, who set a new single game scoring record for the boys with 44 points.

"It was a great shooting performance by the whole team but specifically Kyler," Coach Rob Garrett said. "It's one thing to break the record but an entirely different thing to do it with a 75 percent shooting night. It was a truly impressive accomplishment."

Sause was nine for 11 from the three point line, eight for 12 from two point range, and one for one from the free throw line.

A brief history of single game scoring records at Wahkiakum High School: Cody Olsen set the previous record of 43 points in 2010, which was matched by Brodie Avalon in 2023. Sause's new record catches the boys up to the Mule girls' basketball record of 44 set by Peyton Souvenir in 2017, when she outdid a prior record of 41, set by Michelle Thomas in 1985.

The Mules started the postseason on Wednesday with a district game against Toledo. A score was not available by the time The Eagle went to press. Check the Wahkiakum Eagle Sports Report on Facebook for updates.
