   Sherry Roberts (left) and Sylvia Arnold share a chuckle … while discussing their plot to take over the world.

“Put me in, coach!”

   An injury has kept Heidi Meyers off the basketball court, but nothing can slow her roll when she’s got a tune to share with the world.

   “The Gazelle” at rest. Fleet-footed Maya Toomey-Stout slows down long enough to turn her camera on her fellow athletes.

Glossy pics as far as the eye can see.

Whenever John Fisken swings by Coupeville to shoot sporting events, he always tries to capture the full circus.

So, along with action shots of whatever game is playing out, he also is quick to nab band members, cheerleaders, fans and the like as they go about their business.

Thanks to his lightning-quick camera(s), we have a new batch of behind-the-scenes photos, which appear above courtesy him.

If you like what you see, pop over to Fisken’s site and take a gander at the other three billion photos he has stashed there.

And remember, purchases help fund college scholarships for CHS senior student/athletes.

In his later years, Harris Sinclair got really, really into his music.

Softball sensation Tamika Nastali lays down some sweet air guitar riffs.

There’s the game, and then there’s the universe around the game.

On the court, basketball plays out. Meanwhile, around the sides, cheerleaders fly high, band members wail, and fans look for a chance to get their photos snapped.

Wanderin’ camera clicker John Fisken is always a busy bee at games, and he doesn’t disappoint, delivering a mix of off-court pics for your light Saturday reading enjoyment.

Sometimes there’s more action off the field.

Whenever he hits a game, like he did Friday night when he prowled the sidelines as Coupeville football played, John Fisken likes to swing his camera around to the audience as well.

The pics above, a mix of fans, snack shop operators and CHS band members, remind you why life under the Friday Night Lights is a prep sports experience like none other.

The bright future of Wolf volleyball.

Too many pics.

Hey now, that’s not a bad thing at all, but when you set John Fisken and a bag of cameras to work, the man keeps the shutter poppin’.

While I didn’t have room enough to run everything from Wednesday’s CHS volleyball Senior Night that night, I’m starting to catch up.

The eight photos seen above, a medley of off-court moments, are but the tip of the iceberg.

To see everything Fisken snapped (and possibly purchase some, thereby helping fund scholarships for Wolf student/athletes), pop over to:

So here you go — not much reading, but a whole lot of glossy photo goodness.
