Cheerleaders lead the charge.

Full of school spirit, Wolf sideline warriors have been at the forefront of generating the wall of positive noise exploding out of Coupeville’s gyms at this week’s playoff games.

The gym was alive.

Cheerleaders and fans provided the background noise Tuesday, as the Coupeville High School boys’ basketball team raced to a playoff win on its home court.

In between the cheers, the sound of camera clicks could be heard as well, and the pics seen above and below come to us courtesy John Fisken.

They provide the soundtrack to basketball season.

Coupeville High School cheerleaders and band members play a vital role in keeping things hoppin’ in the gym, and Tuesday night the Wolf support crew took a moment to honor their seniors.

And it was a deep roster of 12th graders, including several foreign exchange students who have brought an international flavor to things this school year.

Carmen McFadyen and granddaughter Kate hang out in Anacortes.

Talent runs deep in the family.

Kate McFadyen was honored as an Athlete of the Month for January by Anacortes High School.

The Seahawk freshman is front and center for the school’s cheer squad and has been during both football and basketball season.

But this blog is called Coupeville Sports, and not the Anacortes Gazette, or some other such nonsense, you say.

So why do we stop to pay tribute to Kate the Great?

Because her Coupeville roots run deep.

While she and older sister Pearl attend Anacortes schools, dad Jason McFadyen and aunt Aleshia Mitten are both CHS grads.

Pops was a three-sport star in his days, leading the Wolf football team to an undefeated regular season in 1990 while also torching the nets as a hoops sensation.

Kate’s cousin, Ava Mitten, is a track star and talented artist well on her way to graduating from Coupeville, while Ava’s older bother, Jake, was a standout Coupeville Middle School athlete before transferring to Oak Harbor for high school.

And then there’s her grandparents, Carmen and the late, great Jack, who, like their children, have spent decades being super-supportive of me first at Videoville and now on the sports blogger beat.

So, while Kate may not currently wear a Wolf uniform, she is prairie royalty, born and raised.

How could we not praise her?
