Ready to get loud ‘n proud.

The spirit is still strong with them.

As we head towards Friday’s 101st anniversary of Coupeville High School boys basketball, a lot of people associated with the program have been looking back through their school photos.

The pics seen above, which prominently feature cheerleaders from the 1987-1988 school year — the last time a CHS boys hoops team went to the state tourney — come to us courtesy Shannon (Sherman) Martin.
