He burnt the nets down, and the outside world took note.

Coupeville High School sophomore Hawthorne Wolfe became the first Wolf basketball player in at least a decade-plus to notch back-to-back 30+ point games, and his performance landed him some big props.

After scoring 34 against Oak Harbor on the road Dec. 4 and singing Orcas Island for 33 in Coupeville’s home opener Dec. 7, Wolfe was tabbed as an Athlete of the Week by the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association.

Each week during the school year, the WIAA honors male and female athletes from every level (4A-1B).

Wolfe kicked off his award-worthy week against 3A Oak Harbor, blitzing them for 15 points in the first quarter alone.

During that time, he went on a 12-0 run by himself, netting three straight three-balls, before driving hard to the hoop for a layup and free throw to get three the hard way.

Against Orcas, Wolfe exploded for 16 points in the third quarter, careening to the hoop, stoppin’ and poppin’, and driving the Viking defenders batty.

Her game travels well.

After tearing up a pair of teams during a Texas trip, Whitman College women’s basketball standout Makana Stone has been tabbed as the Northwest Conference Female Athlete of the Week.

The Coupeville grad threw down a pair of double-doubles as the Blues wrapped up a season-opening seven-game road stand.

After going off for 13 points and 12 rebounds in a win against Concordia University, Stone posted a 22 and 10 in a big-time brawl with the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, the #7 team in NCAA D-III.

Whitman, 6-1 on the season, returns to play this Friday, Dec. 13, when it hosts the University of Maine at Fort Kent in the opener of the Kim Evanger Raney Classic.

On the season, Stone, a senior, has 117 points, 50 rebounds, 11 assists, 11 steals, and eight blocked shots, while shooting 47-79 (59.4%) from the floor and 21-26 (80.8%) from the free throw line.

At this rate, they should just name the award after her.

Coupeville grad, and current Whitman College junior Makana Stone was named Monday as the Northwest Conference Women’s Basketball Athlete of the Week.

It’s the third time this season the former Wolf ace has been tabbed for the award, having already been picked Nov. 19 and Dec. 10.

This time around, Stone is being honored for a road trip in which she threw down three consecutive double-doubles while the Blues took over sole possession of first place in their conference.

Whitman bounced Whitworth, Linfield, and George Fox, which was ranked #12 in NCAA D-III ball, running its record to 6-0 in league play, 12-3 overall.

Stone went for 21 points and 17 rebounds at Whitworth, before following that performance up with 12 and 10 against Linfield and 17 and 11 in a first-place showdown with George Fox.

On the season, she is averaging 16.3 points and 9.1 boards a night.

This time around, Stone shared Athlete of the Week honors with Joey Hewitt of Whitman (men’s basketball), and the Whitworth duo of Cameron Lyon (women’s swimming) and Ryan Grady (men’s swimming).

Welcome to the big time, Matt Hilborn.

The Coupeville High School junior, a stellar football and baseball player for the Wolves, has been Mr. Steady for the past three years, but Wednesday, the spotlight found him.

The Washington Interscholastic Activities Association tabbed Hilborn as its 1A Male Athlete of the Week, honoring him along with seven other competitors from 4A-2B.

He was honored for his play Mar. 10 in the season opener against Lynden Christian, when the CHS diamond men rolled to a 7-3 win.

Hitting lead-off, Hilborn paced the Wolves with three hits and two RBI, while also beating a throw home, sliding under the tag for a crucial run.

That stretched Coupeville’s lead to 5-3, then, in his next at-bat, Hilborn capped things with a game-clinching two-run single to right field.

After starting at third base and playing spotless defense through the first five innings, he moved to the mound in the sixth, coming on in relief of starting hurler Dane Lucero.

Hilborn closed the game with two innings of scoreless work as a pitcher, striking out two and recording the final out on a come-backer to the mound.
