One meet left, with one giant stage on which to shine.

Coupeville High School track and field athletes head to Yakima this week for the 2B state championships, which go down May 25-27.

Counting alternates for two relay squads, 22 Wolves will be on the bus as the wheels go round and round during the cross-state trek.

A number of those CHS track stars feature in our final look at the top 10 performances in 2B this season, while some do not.

While Coupeville had this past weekend off, other schools across the state wrapped up their own district, bi-district, and tri-district meets, and now the numbers are set in stone.

But again, as you scan the numbers below, a reminder that you can be in the top 10 and NOT go to state, while you can also be state-bound and NOT be on this list.

Track and field, forever tricky and full of intrigue.


Where CHS athletes rank among 2B competitors through May 22:



100 — Monroe Myles (10th) 13.28

We’re entering the stretch run, where every second and every inch counts big-time.

High school track and field enters the postseason this week, with Coupeville traveling to La Conner Wednesday for the Northwest 2B/1B League Championships.

After that, depending on performance, is districts and the state meet.

That means, across the state, every track athlete is gunning to throw down PR’s, which creates near-constant movement on the top 10 charts.

Coming off of strong work at Saturday’s Sunny and 70s Invitational, seniors Claire Mayne and Tate Wyman hurdle their way back into the mix for a top spot.

Also jumping onto a top 10 chart is fellow 12th grader Taygin Jump, who made her debut in the hammer throw an auspicious one.

At the same time, several Wolves who sat out Saturday’s meet find themselves bumped off the list, for the moment at least.

And, in a side note, there’s the case of sophomore Katie Marti, currently ranked #10 in the javelin with a throw of 98 feet, 10 inches.

Paul Messner’s granddaughter also has a throw of 100-04, which came at the one-team Coupeville Classic Invitational.

While listed as Marti’s PR, that lob has not been acknowledged as an official mark yet, however, because of complicated regulations on how results are reported, and what is considered “official” and “unofficial.”

With that in mind, a look at where the Wolves rank state-wide among 2B athletes as of May 1:



400 — Lyla Stuurmans (6th) 1:03.76

100 Hurdles — Claire Mayne (9th) 17.96

4 x 400 Relay — Stuurmans, Ryanne Knoblich, Mayne, Carly Burt (6th) 4:37.74

Shot Put — Carolyn Lhamon (4th) 33-09

Javelin — Katie Marti (10th) 98-10

High Jump — Knoblich (6th) 4-10

Hammer Throw — Taygin Jump (3rd) 56-08



400 — Aidan Wilson (6th) 53.08

800 — Wilson (2nd) 2:01.22

110 Hurdles — Tate Wyman (8th) 16.99

4 x 100 Relay — Nick Guay, Wyman, WilsonDominic Coffman (2nd) 45.37

4 x 400 Relay — Guay, Mitchell Hall, Hank MilnesWilson (10th) 3:42.76

Discus — Zac Tackett (10th) 127-05

High Jump — Guay (7th) 5-11; Coffman (8th) 5-10

Long Jump — Alex Murdy (5th) 19-11.75

Triple Jump — Wilson (5th) 40-08.75

We’re still in the thick of things.

With two of three seasons complete during the 2022-2023 school year, Coupeville High School remains firmly wedged into the top five in the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association Scholastic Cup rankings.

With spring sports left to play out, CHS is tied with Napavine, just off of Asotin.

Saint George’s, Okanogan, and Liberty round out the top three.

The Scholastic Cup honors prep athletes for classroom performance as well as sports prowess.

Points are awarded for those who advance to the state championships, such as Wolf football and cross country, with academic success a major component of the process.

Coupeville’s biggest bonanza so far is the 100 points its girls’ cross country squad netted for being state academic champs.

Schools also receive points for sportsmanship and can be dinged for ejections.

One school in each classification, from 4A-1B, will receive the Scholastic Cup after the completion of spring sports.

Rung by rung, we climb the ladder.

Fresh off a 48-6 drubbing of 2A Bellingham, the Coupeville High School football team jumps from #7 to #6 in the latest 2B overview from Evans Rankings.

Stats hound Matt Evans feeds his data into Newman, a diabolical computer likely bent on world domination, and it spits out its opinion every week.

After making a debut at #10 two weeks ago, the Wolves, who are 5-1, have climbed each week.

Coupeville’s next-door neighbor, 1A South Whidbey — the only team the Wolves have lost to this season — are ranked #8 among 1A schools.

And how does this compare to the RPI rankings compiled by the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association, which are “official?”

The WIAA has Coupeville at #8 in 2B and South Whidbey at #7 in 1A.

Personally, I prefer Newman, my favorite computer overlord.

A smidge of respect.

For the first time this season, the Coupeville High School boys basketball team — the only unbeaten squad left in 2B — has been noticed by the big city boys.

The Wolves, who sit at a pristine 13-0 heading into a game at Friday Harbor tomorrow night, received two votes in the most-recent Associated Press prep basketball poll.

That’s not enough to crack the top 10, which is led by Okanogan and Kalama, but it’s a start.

And, to be honest, the lack of votes is understandable, as AP voters tend to vote for teams they’ve seen play at previous state tournies.

Coupeville’s boys are chasing their first invite to the big dance since 1988, so, out of sight, out of mind.

But now, with each new win, it’ll get harder and harder to ignore the Wolves.

Never know — go win a state title, and they might actually crack the top 10…
