Avalon Renninger contemplates the mysteries of the universe between innings. “Is it legal to be as awesome as I am? Yes … I’m gonna have to say yes.”

   The top row gets rowdy, as (l to r) Cheryl Engle, McKenzie Bailey and Genna Wright contemplate gettin’ up to shenanigans.

Ema Smith is no prairie newb. She comes ready for any and all weather.

One win away and Wolf baseball fans can already taste another league title.

   After opening her 8th grade track season with a bang this week, fast-rising supernova Ja’Kenya Hoskins swings by to check out her future classmates.

The weather was just so-so Friday, but that didn’t keep the bleachers from getting jammed.

Wolf fans ignored the cool, cloudy conditions and came out in force to watch the red-hot Coupeville softball and baseball teams anyway.

And they were rewarded, as both squads stormed to victories, raising their records to 10-4 (softball) and 12-4 (baseball).

As the games played out and the stands rocked, wanderin’ paparazzi John Fisken clicked away, and the pics above are courtesy him.

Catherine Lhamon is ready for her close-up, even if her companion is not.

   Justine McGranahan (middle) and Amy Briscoe chat, while CHS softball coach Kevin McGranahan contemplates how many pairs of long johns he’ll need to wear once “spring” sports start on the damp, wind-torn prairie.

   In a sea of phones, Menges (waving), Emma Mathusek (second from right) and Maya Toomey-Stout (far right) remain vigilent.

Photos falling like raindrops.

Thanks to the fastest portrait-clicker in the biz, the jacked-out-of-his-mind-on-Diet-Coke John Fisken, I have a slight surplus of pics at the moment.

The ones above, which capture fans at a recent Coupeville High School boys basketball game, are courtesy him.

Lauren Rose (and her sticker) make for a happy duo.

Went to a basketball game and a good book broke out.

Mesmerized by Ethan Spark’s version of Blue Steel.

Having learned from his elders, he then busted out … Baby Blue Steel.

Kimberly Bepler gets her hug on.

   Rose is joined in a farewell smile-off by fellow Wolf volleyball stars (l to r) Ashley Menges, Lucy Sandahl and Emma Smith.

Babies as far as the eye can see.

Lil’ guys and girls dominated the stands Thursday at Coupeville’s final boys basketball home game, and they anchor this batch of fan photos.

Just to keep things fair, we’ve sprinkled in a few people of other ages, but, yep, it’s pretty much all about the babies.

Pics to the left, pics to the right, pics as far as the eye can see.

Wanderin’ photo bug John Fisken slid by Coupeville’s gym Friday night to catch some Wolf girls basketball action, and put his camera to good use.

Along with in-game snaps, he also landed some glossy photos of fans going about their business, which can be seen above.

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.

The mix of glossy images above are courtesy him.

To view more photos of the former Wolf players and coaches in attendance, some of which have already run here on Coupeville Sports, and some of which you may not have seen, pop over to:
