Let the battles begin.

Three of the four spring sports which keep win/loss records have started league play, though girls tennis continues to lag behind everyone else.

In fact, the Coupeville High School netters have yet to play a match of any kind, much less a league one, even while baseball, softball and soccer all have played at least five games.

Barring weather shenanigans, Wolf tennis finally gets on the court this coming Wednesday, with a home match against King’s.

While we’ve barely begun to figure out which schools will be crowned league champs, Coupeville is off to a strong start in softball, a decent one in soccer, and will have to make up some ground in baseball.

And if you’re wondering why we haven’t mentioned track and field, where the Wolves are off to a brilliant start, it’s only because they don’t keep track of team win/loss records over at the oval.

Otherwise, rest assured that’s the hottest sport in Cow Town at the moment, especially on the girls side of things, where the Wolves have dominated at their first two meets.

But, back in the world of wins and losses, here’s where things sit through Mar. 24:

 

North Sound Conference softball:

School League Overall
Coupeville 1-0 3-2
Granite Falls 1-0 4-3
Sultan 0-0 0-2
CPC-Bothell 0-1 1-1
South Whidbey 0-1 2-2

Everyone’s moving at their own pace.

Spotty weather and raging illness has disrupted the start of spring sports a bit for everyone, but some teams are taking a harder shot to the kidneys than others.

Coupeville High School softball and boys soccer have already played four games apiece, while baseball is finally getting churning with two contests under its belt.

Meanwhile, girls tennis continues to practice, but has yet to face an opponent wearing a different uniform.

And, while track and field is coming off of its first meet, we exclude them from these weekly league standings stories, as the sport isn’t about compiling team win/loss records.

Next week promises a ton more games, weather and health permitting, and yet the Wolf netters still won’t get on the big board, as their first match, barring any late additions to the schedule, doesn’t go down until Mar. 28.

Until then, they, and the rest of us, can spend a few moments marinating in the standings through Mar. 17:

 

North Sound Conference softball:

School League Overall

One team is done, one plays on.

The Coupeville High School boys basketball squad reached the end of the road Saturday, falling a game shy of a playoff berth.

But dreams of postseason glory are still alive for the Wolf girls, who open the double-elimination district tourney Monday at Lynden Christian.

As they exit, a look at the final scoring totals for the CHS boys reveals several things.

The Wolves got three guys into triple digits this time around, after settling for two last year.

But, at the same time, scoring was down, with 158 points from the team’s top scorer being the lowest total by a squad leader since the 2012-2013 season.

Closing on a positive note, that leading scorer was freshman Hawthorne Wolfe, who was the highest-scoring 9th grader in 102 years of Coupeville boys basketball.

Only four other CHS boys, and five girls, have topped 100 varsity points during their freshmen season, and eight of those nine went on to finish their careers in the top 10 for career scorers.

So, based on history, and Wolfe’s own strong work ethic, we can reasonably expect his point totals to trend upwards in the coming years.

Over on the girls side of the ball, seniors Lindsey Roberts and Ema Smith continue to chase individual achievement alongside team glory.

Roberts passed three former Wolf greats in her last game, and now sits at #20 on the girls career scoring chart, while Smith is just four points from cracking the top 50.

As we leave the regular season behind and head into the playoffs, a look at where we are, through Feb. 3:

 

North Sound Conference girls basketball:

School League Overall
King’s 10-0 16-4
CPC-Bothell 8-2 12-6
Coupeville 6-4 8-9
Granite Falls 3-7 5-14

Five days from now, everything will be settled.

Maybe.

Friday, Feb. 1 is the final night of the regular season for high school basketball, but it might not be the absolute cut-off.

While the Coupeville girls know exactly what their postseason route will be, having clinched the #3 seed from the North Sound Conference, the fate of the Wolf boys is still up in the air.

Brad Sherman’s squad holds a one-game lead on Granite Falls in the chase for the #5 playoff spot on the boys side, but the week ahead looms large.

The Wolves travel to South Whidbey Tuesday, while Granite hosts Cedar Park Christian the same night.

Then comes the regular season finale Friday, with CHS on the bus to visit Granite.

A Coupeville win Tuesday would likely clinch a playoff berth, while one Friday will absolutely achieve that goal.

However, if Granite wins both games next week, and the Wolves lose both, there’s no postseason bid for Whidbey’s team.

And then there’s our final scenario, with a Granite win over Coupeville Friday leaving both schools with the same record in league play, having split the season series.

If that happens, the Tigers have to get on the bus and travel to Cow Town Saturday, Feb. 2 for a play-in game for the final postseason slot in the double-elimination district tourney.

Tip-off would be 5 PM in the CHS gym.

While the Wolf boys sweat out their fate, their female counterparts will host King’s Tuesday, then travel to Granite Friday, all while knowing they open districts Feb. 4 against Meridian.

Not that there’s nothing left to play for, as the CHS girls need another victory to clinch a winning record in league play, while seniors Lindsey Roberts and Ema Smith chase individual scoring marks.

With 418 career points, Roberts is just eight shy of passing Cassidi Rosenkrance (423), Mika Hosek (424), and Sarah Powell (425) to become the #20 scorer in Wolf girls hoops history.

Meanwhile, Smith is a single point shy of becoming the 55th CHS girl to record 200 points, and needs 18 to pass Beth Mouw and Lisa Roehl (216) for 50th place all-time.

As we head into the final week of the regular season, a look at where we are, through Jan. 27:

One team is in, one team is still fighting.

Coupeville High School’s varsity basketball teams are in different spots in the standings, but both have their eyes firmly set on the playoffs.

The Wolf girls swept a pair of games this past week, rising back into a tie for second-place in the six-team North Sound Conference, while also clinching a postseason berth.

Meanwhile, the young CHS boys put together their best performance of the season Friday, pushing South Whidbey hard into the fourth quarter.

While they came away with a loss, their second of the week, the Wolf boys still control the battle for the fifth, and final, playoff bid.

A game and a half up on Granite Falls, which it beat the first time around, Coupeville has four games left on the schedule as it looks to KO the Tigers from the playoff race.

This coming week, the Wolf boys play their final regular-season home games, hosting King’s Tuesday and Cedar Park Christian Friday night.

The CHS girls, who have played a game more than their male counterparts, play just once, tangling with CPC at home Friday as the opener in a doubleheader.

As we head into the next-to-last week of the regular season, a look at where we are, through Jan. 20:
