North Sound Conference coaches showed some to Coupeville High School girls basketball players, honoring four of them in year-end awards.

Scout Smith was selected as a First-Team All-Conference pick, while fellow senior Hannah Davidson landed on the Second Team, and junior Chelsea Prescott copped Honorable Mention.

Rounding out the Wolf award winners was senior Tia Wurzrainer, who received Best Sportsmanship from league coaches.

That four-pack of awards was among the many honors handed out Wednesday, as CHS coaches Scott Fox, Megan Smith, and Alex Evans brought their season to a close.

With both the Wolf varsity (12-7) and JV (12-4) enjoying stellar seasons in their final run through the NSC, there was much to celebrate.

“Really happy with three All-League players,” Fox said.

“I could not have asked for a better group of girls to have for my first year as a high school coach,” Megan Smith said of her JV players. “I’m immensely proud of them! They made me look really good.”

Mason Grove exited with a flourish.

The Coupeville High School senior was named a Second-Team All-League player when North Sound Conference basketball coaches got together to discuss season-ending honors.

Grove was honored for a season in which he led the Wolves in scoring during league games, hitting for 15.9 a night against NSC foes.

His farewell present was the big news Tuesday, as the CHS boys hoops teams capped the 2019-2020 season with an awards banquet.

For CHS coaches Brad Sherman, Chris Smith, and Patrick Upchurch, the night brought an end to a successful season.

“Great banquet tonight,” Sherman said. “Good chance to thank those who do so much to make the season a possibility, and honor our athletes who work so hard.

“Plus the cake was really good.”

Wolf coaches honored their players for their commitment to the game, as well as their work with the next generation of stars.

“Through the Wolf Buddies program at the elementary school, as well as our Saturday Youth Basketball Program, the boys continue to make an impact on the youth in our community,” Sherman said. “And that’s something they should be very proud of.”

The Big Hurt continues to get big props.

Coupeville grad Nick Streubel, who just wrapped his senior football season at Central Washington University, was tabbed Wednesday for two awards.

When Great Northwest Athletic Conference coaches tallied up their votes, the former Wolf was named a First-Team All-League pick and the GNAC Offensive Lineman of the Year.

Streubel, who anchored the Wildcat line at center, made the All-Conference team for the third time in his collegiate career.

Central, which finished the season on a six-game winning streak, finished 5-1 in league play, 7-4 overall, winning a third-straight league crown.

The ‘Cats snagged 11 spots on the GNAC’s First Team with Billy Greer joining Streubel as an individual winner.

The league leader in sacks, Greer was picked as the GNAC Defensive Player of the Year.

Streubel, who has been a First Team pick three straight seasons, led an offensive line which helped Central roll up 504.7 yards per game, best in the GNAC and ninth-best in all of D-II football.

During his time in Coupeville, he was a three-sport star for the Wolves, playing football and basketball, while also competing in track and field.

It was a decent haul.

While Coupeville High School has the smallest student body (by far) in the North Sound Conference, Wolf athletes more than held their own in year one of the new six-team league.

Counting the 14 athletic teams CHS sends into action, Cow Town produced one league MVP, two Coaches of the Year, and 32 athletes who received at least one All-Conference selection during the 2018-2019 school year.

Actually, our little exercise only covers 12 of the 14 teams, as the NSC gave no All-Conference honors for girls or boys tennis.

So, that leaves softball, baseball, volleyball, football, plus girls and boys teams in cross country, soccer, track and field, and basketball.

Before we run through the cold hard numbers, there are a couple of things to know.

Six Wolves earned All-Conference honors in two sports, with Emma Smith, Maya Toomey-Stout, Gavin Knoblich, Ryan Labrador, Dane Lucero, and Sean Toomey-Stout all proving themselves to be multi-talented.

Knoblich and the Toomey-Stout twins are juniors, so 50% of the Two-Timers Club can return next year.

Going one better, senior Lindsey Roberts (soccer, basketball, track) and junior Scout Smith (volleyball, basketball, softball) are the only CHS athletes to make an All-Conference team in each of the year’s three seasons.

Of other note, track and cross country listed no MVP’s or Coach of the Year winners, and those two sports chose their All-Conference teams based solely on how athletes placed at the league meet.

The other eight sports had coaches vote for postseason honors.

And lastly, not all sports referred to their top players as MVP’s, so those distinctions will be noted in the list.
