Scout Smith was a Second Team All-Conference pick at setter.

Hannah Davidson closed her prep volleyball career by being tabbed an All-Conference player.

It was one of the most successful seasons in program history.

The three Coupeville High School volleyball teams combined to go 33-10 this fall, with the varsity hitting record-setting highs.

The top Wolf squad started 12-1, while claiming both its fourth-straight top-two league finish and 10+ win season, all under coach Cory Whitmore.

With 14 wins at season end, the 2019 varsity spikers tied the 2004 team for the most victories in a single season by a Coupeville volleyball squad.

That excellence was honored Thursday, as the Wolves put a final bow on the season with a team awards banquet.

Topping the achievements were three All-League selections, as North Sound Conference coaches praised CHS seniors Maya Toomey-Stout, Scout Smith, and Hannah Davidson.

Toomey-Stout landed First Team honors for a second-straight season, while her teammates both were Second Team picks.

Wolves (l to r) Helen Strelow, Cristina McGrath, and Claire Mayne form the core of a young, very-promising team.

They ran to success.

Year two of the revived Coupeville High School cross country program came to an official close Wednesday night, as the Wolves and coach Luke Samford celebrated with an awards banquet.

Junior Catherine Lhamon, who made it to the state meet, and freshman Mitchell Hall, who just missed the cut, took home girls and boys MVP honors, respectively, while 15 runners exited with letters.

After lying largely dormant for two decades, with a few individual harriers training and traveling with other schools, CHS brought back its in-school cross country program in 2018.

That first season featured seven runners (five boys, two girls), with those numbers more than doubling in year two.

Coupeville loses just one senior, with Chris Ruck graduating, and should continue to add to its roster, as the middle school cross country program has even bigger numbers.

Coupeville senior Andrew Martin was named to the All-Conference team, despite not playing any league games. (Photos by JohnsPhotos.net)

Hard-hitting, fumble-causing Sean Toomey-Stout, a contender to play in the All-State game, was also honored by North Sound Conference coaches.

Well, this is a nice bonus.

Despite not playing a single league game this season, the Coupeville High School football squad still landed two players on the All-Conference team.

The Wolves chose to step away from the North Sound Conference for a year, to give a young, inexperienced team time to build and mature.

It worked out nicely, as CHS went 5-4, claiming the program’s first winning record since 2005, but the decision seemed to deny any of the Wolves a chance to be honored by league coaches.

But not so fast.

Hoping to get his seniors consideration for the All-State game, Coupeville Athletic Director Willie Smith approached his league counterparts and hit pay-dirt.

Not only were the AD’s in support of making sure the Wolves remained viable in the All-State process, but they turned around and voted two of them onto the All-Conference team.

Sean Toomey-Stout was named to the First Team as a Specialist, while also being honored as a Second Team pick for his play in the secondary.

Fellow senior Andrew Martin was tabbed as a Second Team player as both a running back and linebacker.

Selections to the 2A/1A/B All-State game, known as the Earl Barden Classic, will be announced later.

The All-Conference honors topped Coupeville’s season-ending football banquet Wednesday night, as Wolf coach Marcus Carr and staff honored their team.

Dawson Houston, Martin, Gavin Straub, Toomey-Stout, and Gavin Knoblich received four-year awards for playing every season of their high school career, while 25 players and two managers lettered.

He froze out the competition.

William “Mr. Freeze” Davidson has a little bit of Cow Town athletic history to call his own, after being named MVP of the first-ever Coupeville Middle School boys soccer team.

The Coupeville High School softball team, coming off a triumphant return to the state tournament, officially capped spring sports Thursday, handing out awards, letters, and plenty of desserts.

The Wolves, who captured the North Sound Conference title, finished 2nd at a tough district tourney, then played three games at state, including knocking off highly-ranked Deer Park, had plenty to celebrate.

Senior catcher Sarah Wright led the way, sharing league MVP honors with Granite Falls senior shortstop Samantha Vanderwel.

Wright was tabbed as the North Sound Conference Defensive Player of the Year, while Vanderwel was named the NSC Offensive Player of the Year.

Junior second-baseman Scout Smith and junior center-fielder Emma Mathusek received First-Team All-Conference honors, with senior first-baseman Veronica Crownover, sophomore shortstop Chelsea Prescott, and freshman pitcher Izzy Wells making Second Team.
