The season ended with a bang.

Beautiful, sunny weather. A home track meet. Tons of PR’s and a roving cameraman or two to immortalize the action.

Coupeville Middle School pulled off another successful home meet Wednesday, and this one was a biggie, as it brought seven teams to Cow Town for the league championships.

Wandering to and fro, John Fisken captured the season finale on film, and the photos above are courtesy him.

Can’t catch Jaelyn Crebbin.

The Coupeville Middle School 8th grader roared to a win in the 1600 Wednesday, claiming a league title at the Olympic League Track and Field Championships.

The victory came on her home oval, as Crebbin and the Wolves hosted six other schools in the season-ending event.

Coupeville finished third overall in the both the girls and boys team standings, trailing only Stevens and Sequim.

Both of those middle schools funnel students to 2A high schools and piled up a lot of their points Wednesday based on having a ton more bodies available than anyone else.

CMS added three second-place finishes, with Caleb Meyer (200), the girls 4 x 200 relay team (which featured Crebbin) and the boys 4 x 100 unit narrowly missing the top spot on the podium.

Kiara Contreras and Co. set a season-best Tuesday in the 4 x 100. (Photos by JohnsPhotos.net)

Carolyn Lhamon came from behind to win the 800.

“The CMS Wolves ran like the Sequim wind.”

Coupeville Middle School track coaches Elizabeth Bitting, Jon Gabelein and Larry Hurlburt have put a lot of time and effort into teaching their young athletes, and it’s paying off big time.

Competing in the final regular-season meet Tuesday, a three-team rumble with Forks and host Sequim, CMS threw down multiple PR’s and captivated their coaches.

“The boys and girls threw further, jumped higher, ran faster, and/or jumped farther than ever before,” Gabelein said. “Our athletes continue to refine their craft.

“I wish there were several more weeks left for them to enjoy the results of hard work during outings like this.”

The Wolves host the Olympic League Championships May 23, an event which brings together the six conference schools for the final time.

And it’s not just a season-capper, but a farewell, as Coupeville jumps to the new North Sound Conference next fall for both high school and middle school sports.

Tuesday’s meet included big moments for both individuals, such as Carolyn Lhamon passing the leader in the final steps to win the 800, and for teams.

Both of Coupeville’s girls relay teams shattered their season-best times.

“With so many PR’s, improvement is being generated team-wide,” Gabelein said. “They may be discovering that the faster they run, the faster they’re done.”

Coupeville Middle School pulled off a successful home track meet Tuesday, with a little help from parents, coaches, athletes (MS and HS), fans and local paparazzi.

The camera clicker wandering the fringes, firing away, was John Fisken, and the pics above are courtesy him.

   “And never come back!” Jordyn Rogers heaves the shot put to somewhere up around Oak Harbor.

Elizabeth Bitting was a tired, but very happy, coach Tuesday night.

With a lot of help, she and her Coupeville Middle School track and field team pulled off a very successful home meet that played out under sunny skies.

The Wolves hosted Chimacum and Blue Heron and other than a few hiccups in running the hurdles, things went pretty peachy.

“The day went well,” Bitting said. “We had teachers, parents, high school coaches and high school athletes volunteer. ALL were amazing!!!

“I had many comments as to how professional they were and how the high school athletes took command of their events,” she added. “It was great seeing (CHS coach) Randy King step in as our starter!”

For her young athletes to compete on the same track as the high school stars do, and enjoy a still fairly brand-new set-up, is something for which Bitting is very grateful.

“Middle school had some PR’s; all had great attitudes! Lots of smiles!,” she said. “I think they were happy to be able to run on their track and have friends and family watch and cheer them on!”
