This worked out nicely.
Whidbey Island’s one (partial) day of snow cost the Coupeville High School basketball squads a planned trip to Orcas Island Dec. 20.
Instead, it gained both of them an extra home game.
With the two schools scrambling to find a way to get in the planned non-league doubleheader, the decision was made to move the event to today (Saturday, Jan. 4,) but with the games now in the CHS gym.
The Wolf girls (4-2), coming off an impressive take-down of a previously highly-regarded La Conner team Friday night, tip off at 3:30 PM this afternoon.
The Coupeville JV boys play across the hallway in the middle school gym at the same time, with the Wolf varsity boys (0-6) tipping off in the main gym after the girls game ends (approximate tip-time is 5 PM).
There will be no girls JV game, as Orcas doesn’t have a second girls team.
