Meyer, possibly up to shenanigans…

But Meyer is faster!

If the gym’s a rockin’, don’t come a knockin’.

Seriously, just walk in, cause no one will hear you banging on the outside doors.

When the Coupeville High School band (with a few middle school ringers tossed in for good measure) gets going, the gym is jumping, and Thursday night was prime time for the prairie musicians.

The pics above, which capture some Senior Night festivities and some musical action, come to us from photo bugs John Fisken and Susan Hulst.

   Allison Wenzel, here playing with the CHS band at a football game, claimed two first-place finishes Sunday in a music competition. (Photos by JohnsPhotos.net)

   Jakobi Baumann matched her finish, winning as both an individual and as part of a duo.

Both Wolves advance to the state competition in late April.

The music is in them.

Coupeville High School seniors Allison Wenzel and Jakobi Baumann combined for three wins Saturday at a San Juan Music Educators Association competition in Bellingham, punching their tickets for state.

Wenzel, who was playing the day before her birthday, captured first in French Horn while playing the first movement of “Horn Concerto No. 2 for Horn and Orchestra by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.”

Baumann matched her, winning a title in Trombone while laying down the sweet sounds of the first movement of “Concertino by Ferdinand David.

The duo also teamed up to triumph in Brass Ensemble, besting 18 other rivals.

Wenzel and Baumann tickled the ears of the judges with the first movement of “The First Sonata for Horn and Trombone by Jean Antoine Blanc.”

Both Wolves are standout students who also find time to compete in multiple sports.

Baumann is a top tennis player and distance runner for the CHS track team, while Wenzel is one season away from finishing off a perfect 12-for-12 run as a high school athlete.

She has competed in volleyball, basketball and track all four years.

The state music competition is Apr. 27-28 at Central Washington University.

It ain’t a thing without that swing.

   Speedy shutterbug Maya Toomey-Stout snaps away as the action unfolds a few inches away.

Jordan Ford 1, Sherry Roberts 0. Rest assured, payback will be swift and deadly.

   A superstar in every seat, as the living legends return to their alma mater to be honored.

You can go home again.

Coupeville High School celebrated the 101st anniversary of its boys basketball program Friday, and there was a legend in every seat.

The superstars of the ’70s crossed paths with guys who want to match their achievements in the coming years, and fans of every age showed up to watch it all go down.

Travelin’ photo man John Fisken was there as well, though he was working, snapping pics all night long.

Tis the time of the season for reunions.

With the holidays in full swing, a lot of former Wolf sports stars are back home from college, and many of them swung by the gym recently to catch up with family and former teammates.

Letting his camera wander the whole 360-degree field, photog John Fisken captured some of the reunions, plus a mix of band members at work and fans being fans.

The smorgasbord of holiday pics seen above are courtesy him.
