Immediate impact.

From the moment they made their varsity basketball debuts this season, junior Sean Toomey-Stout and freshman Hawthorne Wolfe were at the core of everything the Coupeville High School boys basketball squad accomplished.

Leading a young team building for the future, the duo impressed North Sound Conference coaches, picking up votes in postseason voting and earning Honorable Mention status when the league recently named its All-Conference teams.

Toomey-Stout, bouncing back after missing his sophomore basketball season thanks to a football injury, added the team varsity MVP award Wednesday, when CHS held its season-ending banquet.

“The Torpedo” led the Wolves in steals, assists, points in the paint, and offensive rebounds, while finishing second in defensive boards and scoring.

The night’s other big awards went to the team’s two seniors, post player Dane Lucero and team manager Ryan Labrador.

Lucero capped a two-year run on the hardwood by nabbing the varsity Wolf Pack Award, which honors a player who showcases “leadership, character, attitude, effort, and commitment.”

Dane exemplifies all of these and more,” said CHS coach Brad Sherman. “Very deserving of being recognized for his level of leadership and class in everything he does.”

Labrador received the Program Distinguished Service Award.

Ryan works extremely hard to support those around him, never asks for anything in return, and does it with a smile on his face,” Sherman said. “That’s just who he is and we were very lucky to have him this year.”

As a program, Coupeville also received a pair of awards from the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association, with both the varsity and JV earning Distinguished Scholastic Awards.

The JV put together a cumulative GPA of 3.292, while the Wolf varsity finished at 3.185.

They made a strong first impression.

The Coupeville High School girls basketball team beat preseason predictions, finishing third in the new six-team North Sound Conference.

Proving the best of the four scrappy public schools, CHS pushed back as hard as anyone against the twin private school juggernauts who ruled the roost.

The Wolves took Cedar Park Christian to the final moments in the second meeting between the teams, and did what it could to contend with league champ King’s.

Based on their play, and their refusal to back down, league coaches tabbed three Wolves for All-League honors, led by senior Lindsey Roberts earning a First-Team distinction.

A four-year varsity vet, she led Coupeville in scoring for the second-straight season, and wrapped her career as the #18 scorer in program history.

Fellow senior Ema Smith and junior Scout Smith, Coupeville’s other two varsity captains, were honored as Second-Team All-League picks.

Both Smith girls had big seasons, with Ema topping the team in nailing three-pointers, while Scout ran the point for the Wolves and sealed a key win at Sultan with a pair of late free throws.

In addition, junior Avalon Renninger shared the NSC Sportsmanship Award.

The coaching staffs from each league team picked one player from their squad to be honored.

The league awards were just the start Thursday as CHS coaches David and Amy King capped their seventh season with a team banquet.

Revived, reborn and earning respect.

Ending a two-decade-plus exile, cross country returned to Coupeville High School this fall, and it was a smashing success.

Starting the program virtually from scratch — two returning runners, Danny Conlisk and Sam Wynn, had trained and traveled with South Whidbey last year — CHS coach Natasha Bamberger hit the ground running.

She pulled together an eight-athlete roster, fielding a full boys team while launching the very-promising harrier careers of Catherine Lhamon and Alana Mihill.

The trail runners made huge strides while training with Bamberger, who won a 1985 state title in cross country and four more in track back when she was the one wearing a CHS uniform.

Tack on a huge turnout at the middle school level for CMS coach Elizabeth Bitting, and the future of the cross country program couldn’t be brighter.

But Sunday night was about hailing the trailblazers who brought cross country back inside Coupeville schools.

In future years, as the program grows, other Wolves may join Bamberger and 2010 state champ Tyler King at the top of the podium.

When they do, they will be rightfully hailed.

But for now, and forever, the two girls, six boys, one ecstatic coach and their all-star support crew, the ones who stepped up in 2018, will live large.

It’s a feeling Bamberger captured in her awards banquet wrap-up:

“Happy Crossgiving!!”

This is how the Coupeville High School cross country family ends its first XC season – at Fort Casey with submarines, laughs and tons of kindness.

Best Attitude Award:
TJ Rickner

TJ has the best attitude you could ask for in a runner. Finishes the race saying coach that was so fun! Smiling ear to ear.

I want to bottle that enthusiasm!

It was a great night! They sewed coach a quilt!

Special thanks to Dawnelle, Glenda and Ken. Fitting he was at the head of the table, submarines and all!

Huge thank you Robyn Myers, SPU-Fort Casey, and for the amazing support of the Coupeville Boosters. I’m overwhelmed.

Thank you David for your support of the team. Anything I can do for you please ask.

You have done so much for this community.

Do your articles motivate? Maybe we better put you in the hot seat in the next super motivator contest!!

We could graph athlete performance and “Coupeville Sports” coverage. Haha!!

Parting words … “Summer practice starts weekdays 10 AM after the last day of school, Monday-Friday.

(Big focus eye contact and huge smile holding my breath…)

I look forward to seeing you ALL there!

Feels great to be home!

Maya Toomey-Stout is a rare athlete.

“The Gazelle,” among her many, many skills, has the ability to generate an often eye-popping amount of power on the volleyball court, all while coming back down to Earth.

Hitters usually generate their court-exploding spikes moving forward, leaping into the fray, their power surging out in front.

And Toomey-Stout lashes like a wild woman when she explodes from deep on the court, propelling herself towards the net like an avenging angel.

But she also can do what most can not, which is to elevate in the air to a ridiculous height, hang there for an eternity, and then reach over her head, snagging a wayward volleyball.

When she does, Toomey-Stout rarely flicks or stabs at the ball, but instead whips her hand in a loop, generating almost as much power – and as many put-aways – when she’s seemingly helpless, as when she’s clearly attacking.

That rare ability to be a sniper in any and all circumstances has netted “The Gazelle” the shrieks of die-hard fans, as well as big props from coaches near and far.

Toomey-Stout, a junior, was a First-Team All-Conference pick this season, and Tuesday she bounded away with the varsity MVP award.

Closing out his third season at the helm of the Wolves, CHS coach Cory Whitmore (with an assist from JV guru Chris Smith) doled out awards and letters as their squads enjoyed a final banquet.
