Banquet season ended with a bang.

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.

Coupeville saw six of its nine starters earn honors when league coaches voted for All-Conference teams.

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.

Coupeville diamond guru Kevin McGranahan was selected as Coach of the Year by his peers.

Jillian Mayne was one of 12 Coupeville netters to letter this season. (Photos by JohnsPhotos.net)

Joining Mayne on the list was freshman Eryn Wood.

Two players, one goal.

Coupeville High School juniors Avalon Renninger and Tia Wurzrainer mesh together fairly flawlessly, making for an ideal doubles unit on the tennis court.

So, it’s only fitting that the dynamic duo closed their season the same way they played it, sharing team MVP honors Monday night as the Wolves handed out awards and letters.

The wonder twins also shared Captain honors, with Wurzrainer tabbed as Most Inspirational.

Sophomore Genna Wright, who held down the #1 singles slot, copped the Coach’s Award from CHS net guru Ken Stange, and three Wolves snagged Most Improved honors.

Abby Mulholland collected “Most Improved Varsity,” Noelle Daigneault was picked as “Most Improved Swing Player” and Cecelia Camarena was named “Most Improved JV Player.”
