Carolyn Lhamon came from behind to win the 800.

“The CMS Wolves ran like the Sequim wind.”

Coupeville Middle School track coaches Elizabeth Bitting, Jon Gabelein and Larry Hurlburt have put a lot of time and effort into teaching their young athletes, and it’s paying off big time.

Competing in the final regular-season meet Tuesday, a three-team rumble with Forks and host Sequim, CMS threw down multiple PR’s and captivated their coaches.

“The boys and girls threw further, jumped higher, ran faster, and/or jumped farther than ever before,” Gabelein said. “Our athletes continue to refine their craft.

“I wish there were several more weeks left for them to enjoy the results of hard work during outings like this.”

The Wolves host the Olympic League Championships May 23, an event which brings together the six conference schools for the final time.

And it’s not just a season-capper, but a farewell, as Coupeville jumps to the new North Sound Conference next fall for both high school and middle school sports.

Tuesday’s meet included big moments for both individuals, such as Carolyn Lhamon passing the leader in the final steps to win the 800, and for teams.

Both of Coupeville’s girls relay teams shattered their season-best times.

“With so many PR’s, improvement is being generated team-wide,” Gabelein said. “They may be discovering that the faster they run, the faster they’re done.”

The mission was simple – get in, put down a beatin’, get out.

Mission accomplished.

Both Coupeville Middle School girls basketball teams rolled to blowout wins Monday, thrashing host Chimacum quickly and efficiently.

The Wolf 7th graders cruised to a 40-7 rout, upping their record to 5-1 on the season, while the CMS 8th graders improved to 4-2 after collecting a 41-12 victory.

Both squads will get a much bigger test Thursday, when they return home to face Stevens, a ginormous middle school from Port Angeles.

The first time the two schools faced this season they split games, with Coupeville’s 7th graders and Stevens’ 8th graders coming out on top.

Monday afternoon was a romp from start to finish, with the Wolves getting 15 players in the scoring column.

7th grade:

Coupeville dominated in the paint, with Carolyn Lhamon going off for 14 and Nezi Keiper banging home a season-high 11.

Maddie Georges (8), Gwen Gustafson (2), Alita Blouin (2), Jessenia Camarena (2) and Adrian Burrows (1) rounded out the Wolf offensive attack.

8th grade:

Runnin’ and gunnin’, Audrianna Shaw outscored Chimacum by herself, slapping home 15 points with a variety of slick moves and killer finishes.

Ja’Kenya Hoskins swished eight, Anya Leavell torched the nets for six and Kiara Contreras banked in four to back their leader up.

Also scratching their names in the scoring column were Ella Colwell (3), Lily Leedy (2), Abby Mulholland (2) and Kylie Van Velkinburgh (1).

   While rival players gasp at the destruction laid down by Wolf enforcer Ja’Kenya Hoskins, Audrianna Shaw snatches the ball away and heads off to score.

Basketball is back, even if it never really left.

With the high school teams and middle school boys all done, the floor fully belongs to the CMS girls, and they kicked off their season Thursday in style.

While the Wolves were thrashing visiting Chimacum, wanderin’ camera clicker John Fisken was busy popping off shots of his own.

Now, having returned from the state wrestling tourney, where son Michael was competing this weekend, Fisken was nice enough to share the photos above.

And, when you do, remember, purchases help fund college scholarships for CHS student/athletes.

Plus, they make it even more likely Fisken will continue to periodically visit Cow Town, camera in hand.

This was a back-alley beat down. Brutal and beautiful.

Both of the Coupeville Middle School girls basketball teams this season are stocked with players who have risen through the SWISH ranks, learning the game and jelling as a unit as they do so.

And now that pays off.

Opening the season with a fury, the Wolves scorched visiting Chimacum twice Thursday, in games which were routs and yet could have been far worse, if the CMS coaches hadn’t pulled back the reigns and the refs hadn’t gone into the tank.

8th grade:

The core of the older Wolf squad won a title the last time they were on the floor, capping their SWISH season by routing three big-city teams.

Thursday they picked right back up where they left off, using a withering defense and an opportunistic offense to thrash the Cowboys 56-14.

The game was actually close for about half a second, as both teams displayed cold shooting touches early on and CMS clung to a 4-2 lead with a little over two minutes left in the first quarter.

Enter Ja’Kenya Hoskins, and exit any chance Chimacum would have.

With Coupeville clamping down with a full-court press and trap, the Wolves suddenly ripped off four baskets in approximately 12 seconds, with Hoskins directly involved in all of them.

She started things with a steal and breakaway layup, then fed running mate Izzy Wells for a layup off of another steal.

With the Cowboys going from disorientated to disaster in the blink of an eye, Hoskins ripped a ball free, then launched a pass that dropped perfectly onto Audrianna Shaw’s fingertips.

Catching the ball in mid-stride, the Wolf guard banged home a running layup, part of her game-high 18, and the rout was on.

Just to make sure Chimacum knew their moment had passed, Hoskins promptly stole the in-bounds pass and repeated her air mail assist move, with the ball flung to a sprinting Kiara Contreras this time around.

Up 12-2 at the first break, Coupeville was just getting started.

The second quarter was one bucket after another, as CMS ran the Cowboys ragged as they knocked down 25 points in eight frantic minutes.

Anya Leavell, who somehow was NOT one of the five Wolves to score in the first quarter, made up for it in a big way, dropping in eight points by herself in the second quarter.

All four buckets came on long outlet passes, as Leavell slipped behind the defense, then triggered the jets on her shoes once her teammates lobbed the ball airborne.

The prettiest pass came from Abby Mulholland, who also set up Ella Colwell for a basket as Coupeville kept the ball zipping from player to player, only stopping when the orb hit the bottom of the net.

Just to cap things, Wells sank a three-ball from the top off of an in-bounds pass, then spun, stole the ball right back and fed Shaw on the break.

Everything was clicking for Coupeville — on one play Samantha Streitler stole a pass, flipped it backwards to Hoskins, then reached for the popcorn and enjoyed the show as Hoskins hit Leavell in stride for yet another breakaway bucket.

The only thing slowing down Dustin Van Velkinburgh’s squad was a running clock, which went into effect once the lead hit 40, and refs, who, feeling sorry for Chimacum, decided to stop calling anything on the Cowboys for the final 10 minutes.

I could go on a long tirade about how blatant “charity” from the refs, too frequently displayed during middle school blowouts, actually hurts instead of helps a weak team trying to improve, but we’ll move on.

Seven of the 12 Wolves to see the floor scored, with Leavell dropping in 13 to go with Shaw’s 18.

Wells (9), Hoskins (6), Kylie Van Velkinburgh (4), Contreras (4) and Colwell (2) also scored, while Katelin McCormick, Streitler, Alana Mihill, Mulholland and Angelina Gebhard chipped in with hustle, defense and killer attitudes.

7th grade:

For a very long stretch of this game, it appeared Chimacum wouldn’t score.

While the Cowboys finally netted a bucket nearly 14 minutes in, then went almost 10 minutes before bucket #2, the young Wolves slapped down baskets left and right in a 50-10 rout.

Gwen Gustafson, channeling older sister Amanda Fabrizi, a former high-scoring CHS hoops star, drilled the bottom of the net with a pull-up jumper less than 30 seconds into the game and things were essentially done.

Her basket came off of a rebound by Nezi Keiper, and it signaled complete and utter domination on the glass from the Wolves.

With Keiper, Carolyn Lhamon, Adrian Burrows and the Battlin’ Lucero sisters, Allie and Maya, pulling down 3.9 out of every four rebounds, CMS had second, third, sometimes even sixth chances.

Most of those boards came on the offensive end of the floor, as Coupeville’s guards pestered and harassed the Cowboy ball-handlers into total submission, resulting in painfully few Chimacum shots.

Buzzing like attack insects, Maddie Georges, Alita Blouin, Gustafson and Hayley Fiedler came at the Cowboys from every angle, rarely giving them a chance to breathe, much less think about making solid passes.

Once they had the ball back in their hands, which was on just about every possession through the first three quarters, the Wolves flew to the hoop.

Georges, living up to her “Mad Dog” nickname, was a particular buzz-saw, picking pockets, then flashing by the Cowboys, who saw a burst of red hair go hurtling by but had no answers for the quicksilver hoops star.

With older brother Alex Evans calling the shots in his first game as the CMS 7th grade coach, and former Wolf baller Rhiannon Ellsworth screaming her name every time she scored, Georges served notice the future of Wolf hoops is here and it will be electric.

Draining a game-high 14, Georges teamed with Lhamon, who banged down low in the paint for 10, to form a potent outside/inside combo.

Seven other Wolves scored, with Gustafson (6), Blouin (5), Maya Lucero (5), Allie Lucero (4), Keiper (2), Fiedler (2) and Burrows (2) also etching their names in the book.

Trinity McGee, Jordyn Rogers, Jessenia Camarena and Mercedes Kalwies-Anderson also saw floor time.
