COVID-19 can’t keep the Coupeville Booster Club down.

The ongoing pandemic will prevent the group from hosting its annual athlete appreciation banquet, but that won’t stop the boosters from giving everyone a send-off.

The club is teaming with Coupeville High School coaches and Athletic Director Willie Smith, and will hand-out Wolves memorabilia to athletes Thursday, June 11 at the CHS gym.

Things start at 3:30 PM.

Booster Club members, coaches, and Smith will wear masks and gloves to protect themselves and students.

Athlete can get their memorabilia directly from their coaches, but have to maintain required social distance.

The give-away caps a busy, productive, and memorable school year for the Booster Club, which is also awarding scholarships to seven Wolves from the Class of 2020.

They are:

Natalie Hollrigel ($1,300)

Avalon Renninger ($1,000)
Lucy Sandahl ($1,000)
Gavin Straub ($1,000)
Maya Toomey-Stout ($1,000)
Sean Toomey-Stout ($1,000)
Ulrik Wells ($1,000)

The Coupeville Booster Club is comprised of parents, staff, alumni, friends, and businesses.

The club provides assistance to Coupeville athletic programs through volunteerism and financial support, while purchasing supplies, equipment, and capital items beyond what the school athletic budget provides.

Their objective is to support Coupeville athletic programs, its coaches and athletes, and to raise school and community spirit.

The crabs will be there, will you?

Coupeville High School’s biggest athletic fundraiser, the annual Crab Feed, is set for Nov. 9, and tickets go on sale today.

The event, which features Dale Sherman (and his velvet voice) as auctioneer, is held at the Whidbey Island Nordic Lodge Hall, which is located at 63 Jacobs Road in Coupeville.

Doors open at 4:30, though the crabs will be entering through the back door.

Tickets, which can be purchased from any Coupeville Booster Club board member, are $50 and include two free drinks.

If you don’t cross paths with the ticket holders, you can also reach them by messaging them through the Club’s Facebook page:


Along with the crab and various other tasty food products to be served, the event features an auction.

A couple of highlights include a two-hour boat tour from Saratoga Yacht Charters, a champagne and truffle reception for 12 at the Compass Rose, and a hand-made Madrona wood side table with a built-in wine rack created by CHS Athletic Director Willie Smith.

Some Booster Clubs sit around, but not the one reppin’ Coupeville High School.

Making the money rain down, the helping hands behind Wolf Nation gave out more than $4,000 to CHS sports programs at their last meeting, then promptly went out and sold 700 pounds of seafood at Mussel Fest to replenish the coffers.

The Booster Club’s most recent endowments include buying t-shirts for boys basketball’s cancer awareness night, and purchasing new jackets for Wolf softball.

CHS girls basketball and boys soccer also scored, with both programs having requests for new player travel bags approved.

Let the good times roll.

Coming off of a hugely successful Crab Feed, the Coupeville Booster Club let the money rain down on Wolf sports programs this week.

Flush with cash from the year’s biggest fundraiser, the club approved six different requests from CHS and CMS sports programs.

“We had a very productive Booster Club meeting,” said board President Wendi Hilborn.

That was a sentiment echoed by everyone in the room.

“This makes us SO happy!!,” said board member Jess Lucero. “In the past, not all teams took advantage of their team improvement money.”

Requests approved Thursday, to the tune of almost $10,000:

A timing system for CMS/CHS cross country – $1,297.66.

Headsets for CMS/CHS football – $2,430.00.

CMS basketball shooting shirts – $694.00.

CHS boys basketball travel bags – $1,319.21.

LED display timing system for CMS/CHS track – $2,110.11

CHS baseball pitching machine – $1,736.00.

Funding Wolf sports programs is an ongoing business, but membership fees (join today!) and fundraisers help the Booster Club keep chugging along.

“The Crab Feed was a success and this always puts the board at ease, as it lets us know we meet our budgeted obligations,” Lucero said.

“We want to thank those who supported the Crab Feed by donating items, services, or volunteering man hours to make it happen,” she added. “We would have virtually nothing to give teams if it wasn’t for the Crab Feed.”


PS — Want to join the Booster Club, help fund them, and keep the money flowing to Wolf sports?

The club offers four tiers, and a membership is good from Sept. 1 to Aug. 31 of the next year:

$125 — Business membership (includes a Wolf banner)

$75 — Family membership

$50 — Individual membership

$25 — Wolf Backer

The Individual, Family, and Business levels also include signage acknowledging you in the entrance way to the CHS gym.

Of course, you can also make special monetary gifts and donations, if you’re feeling especially flush with Wolf pride.

The circle of life is fueled by crustaceans.

The Coupeville Booster Club threw its yearly Crab Feed shindig Saturday, packing the Nordic Lodge Hall and raising a ton of money for CHS athletes.

The event is the biggest fundraiser for the boosters, and, along with the food, and the auctions, it also attracts a high class of paparazzi.

Ema Smith, uber-talented Wolf senior, returned to swing the camera lens on the crowd, and the photos above are courtesy her.
