After a week off, Scott Hilborn and Co. open Northwest 2B/1B League play at home against La Conner.

The view is nice from the top.

Two of the four Coupeville High School fall sports teams which keep win/loss records find themselves in first place as of this morning.

The high-flying Wolf volleyball team sits alone at 3-0 in Northwest 2B/1B League play, while the CHS girls are tied at 1-0 with defending champs Mount Vernon Christian.

Now, both of those teams, and Coupeville’s football, boys soccer, and cross country programs head into a busy week.

The Wolf spikers host Cedar Park Christian-Bothell Monday in a non-conference bout, then travel to Darrington Wednesday for a league rumble.

After that, volleyball closes the week with an appearance Saturday at a tourney in Sultan.

Coupeville’s soccer squads each play twice in the week ahead, with the girls traveling to MVC Tuesday, before hosting non-league rival Granite Falls Thursday.

The Wolf boys host Grace Academy Tuesday, and are off to visit Friday Harbor on Friday.

Out on the gridiron, Coupeville returns to action after a week off, hosting La Conner Friday in a major league battle.

Rounding out things, the CHS cross country program — the one which doesn’t keep win/loss records — runs three times.

Tuesday, the Wolves are at Orcas, Friday they’re home at Fort Casey, and Saturday brings a visit to the Roller Coaster Trail Run, hosted by King’s.

Katelin McCormick and Wolf girls soccer kick off their season this coming week.

Now, everyone starts to play.

The week ahead is the first to feature all five Coupeville High School fall sports teams in action, with girls soccer finally hitting the pitch.

Most of the action is in the latter stages of the week, with six of seven events going down between Thursday and Saturday.

Wolf volleyball is the only program to play in the first part of the week, with a home match Tuesday against Mount Vernon Christian, followed by a Thursday home clash with Orcas Island.

Girls soccer makes its debut Thursday at home against La Conner, then hits the road Saturday for a non-conference tilt with East Jefferson — the result of Chimacum and Port Townsend merging into one program for athletics.

Also seeing action is Wolf football — on the road Friday at East Jefferson — boys soccer and cross country.

The CHS booters host Orcas Island Friday, with the harriers traveling to Langley Saturday for the 42nd annual Carl Westling Invitational.

We’re done.

The basketball season, and the school athletic year, came to a close Tuesday, with the La Conner girls and Mount Vernon Christian boys clinching Northwest 2B/1B League hoops titles.

Coupeville finished 4th on the girls side and 3rd in boys action, though the latter was by a razor-thin margin.

The Wolf boys (8-4) tied with MVC (8-3) for the most wins — and beat the Hurricanes twice — but finished a half-game back after MVC declined to host Orcas Island after that school requested no fans at its road games during the pandemic.

Friday Harbor, at 7-3, with a pair of one-point wins over Coupeville, edges the Wolves for second-place by having a slightly better winning percentage.

Final league standings for the pandemic-altered 2021 hoops campaign:

One night, two titles on the line.

Tuesday marks the end of the transplanted 2021 basketball season, and both Northwest 2B/1B League titles will be decided on the floor in Mount Vernon.

First up, the La Conner girls will try and finish out an undefeated league campaign, while Mount Vernon Christian will vie for the upset.

The first time these squads faced off, the Braves bounced the Hurricanes 58-33, giving MVC its only loss of the season.

La Conner has impressive non-conference wins against 1A Kings and 2A Lynden, with its lone setback coming to 2A Burlington-Edison.

The math is simple — Tuesday’s winner is league champ.

In the boys contest, MVC will be playing for a title, while La Conner will try and fill the role of spoiler.

Hurricanes win, they top an extremely-close race partially determined by only two of seven NWL schools — Coupeville and Concrete — playing a full 12-game league schedule.

If La Conner triumphs, however, Friday Harbor comes out on top for the boys title.

With their own win Tuesday over visiting Darrington, Coupeville can finish with victories in two-thirds of its games, but it can’t win a league title.

A one-point loss in overtime to Friday Harbor denied the Wolves that fate, but a win against Concrete in their next game did clinch the program’s first winning season since 2010.

Nine days to play, two titles up for grabs.

Technically.

A person might come along and randomly look at the Northwest 2B/1B League basketball standings for the first time today and think both races are all-out wars.

It’s not true, though.

While the Mount Vernon Christian girls are a very-good team, and do sit just a half-game off of La Conner, I am here to tell you to take all your money to Vegas and bet on the Braves and not the Hurricanes.

The one loss for MVC came against La Conner, and it wasn’t close, with the Braves rolling to a 58-33 win.

That’s the second-closest any team has come to toppling the 2B powerhouse, with the other being 1A royalty King’s, which fell 44-39 in a war of teams which would be playing for state titles in a non-pandemic world.

La Conner and MVC face off a second time, in the season finale June 15, and I could turn out to be an idiot.

If the Hurricanes win, I’ll tip my hat to them.

But I don’t think I’ll need a hat that day.

On the other side of the standings, it is a legitimate war, but, after a 3-0 week, the Coupeville boys control their own destiny.

While MVC has the same 6-3 record as the Wolves, CHS swept the season series with the Hurricanes, and will play three more games to Mount Vernon’s two.

Win out, while playing Friday Harbor (5-3), Concrete (0-9), and Darrington (2-3), and Coupeville, which is on a four-game winning streak, can’t be stopped.

The first, and biggest of those contests comes Tuesday on Whidbey, followed by a road trip Thursday to the wilds of Concrete.

Senior Night arrives the following Tuesday, June 15, four days after graduation, and could be one of the biggest nights in Coupeville boys basketball history.
