Let the honors rain down.

The Coupeville High School Class of 2022, which endured through a pandemic which altered public schooling for two-plus years, exits this weekend.

But, before graduation arrives — 1 PM Saturday, June 11 at Mickey Clark Field — school officials and community members are hailing all the Wolves have achieved.

During a virtual ceremony, CHS seniors received awards and scholarships, with the Class of 2022 bagging an impressive amount of financial help for college or trade training.

Morgan Stevens received the CHS Senior Service Award, an honor in which students are nominated by fellow students, before being voted on by faculty.

Good citizenship and sportsmanship are considered, as well as “aiding other students unselfishly, (and) serving faculty, administration and their school in an unselfish manner.”

Brian Casey and Noelle Daigneault were also named as Lion’s Club Students of the Year.

Brian Casey was a strong performer on the field and in the classroom.

Noelle Daigneault, extremely entertaining and very deserving of taking home honors. (Photos by JohnsPhotos.net)

Hawthorne Wolfe reminds you there’s a line to get his photo, and it starts over there.

You can’t dampen their enthusiasm.

Coupeville High School seniors Noelle Daigneault and Hawthorne Wolfe are multi-sport stars who both have vibrant personalities.

So, it’s sort of appropriate that the duo was both honored Tuesday, taking home the Cliff Gillies Award.

That honor, named for the longtime Executive Director of the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association, recognizes student/athletes who excel in scholarship, citizenship, and participation in activities.

Daigneault was a key member of Wolf soccer and tennis teams.

On the pitch, she was a feisty, fast-talking defender who helped anchor the back line.

Pop her on a tennis court, and Daigneault was an ace, partnering with Eryn Wood to advance all the way to bi-districts.

An academic sensation, she also ruled the stage as an actress and was voted Homecoming Queen, accomplishing everything while showcasing one of the sunniest personalities in Wolf Nation.

Wolfe is one of the few CHS stars from any time period who can match Daigneault’s charisma, and he loves the spotlight.

As a senior, he helped lead Coupeville to its best boys basketball season in decades, with the Wolves winning their first league title since 2002.

The hoops squad added its first district title since 1970, then punched a ticket to the state tourney for the first time since ’88.

Wolfe went out doing what he does — raining pain on his foes from long-distance, while bobbing, weaving, and talking non-stop to fellow players, refs, and fans.

The man who lived to watch the nets flip dropped 10 of his team-high 16 points in the fourth quarter of Coupeville’s finale at state, with the final three-ball giving him 800 career points.

After that, Wolfe moved to the baseball diamond, where he earned Northwest 2B/1B League co-MVP honors for his work on the mound, in the outfield, and at the plate.

Cole White joined Jonathan Valenzuela as a JV captain.

The most-successful Coupeville High School boys basketball season in 11 years came to an official close Friday.

Wolf hoops coach Brad Sherman handed out certificates and letters to his players, putting a final stamp on a pandemic-altered campaign.

But first he stopped to honor everyone connected with the team for overcoming long odds during an international pandemic.

“We wanted to recognize every member of this team and all they overcame in a difficult year,” Sherman said. “And acknowledge their hard work in a very, very long off-season, without knowing if they’d get a season at all.”

Basketball was moved from the winter to late spring, and the Wolves played a compressed schedule while dealing with multiple Covid-related restrictions.

But both Wolf squads prospered.

The JV, under first-year head coach Hunter Smith, closed with a five-game winning streak en route to posting a 5-3 record.

Coupeville’s varsity won six of its final seven games, with the only loss a one-point decision in overtime.

Finishing 8-4, just a half-game off Northwest 2B/1B League champ Mount Vernon Christian (8-3) — a team they beat twice — the Wolves captured their first winning season since 2010.

Junior Xavier Murdy, who led the varsity in rebounds, assists, and steals, while finishing as the #2 scorer, was named the “Wolf Way Player of the Year.”

The award honors someone who exemplifies the team’s five pillars of grit, gratitude, humility, trust, and excellence.

Fellow junior Hawthorne Wolfe earned Offensive Player of the Year, while sophomore Alex Murdy claimed Defensive Player of the Year.

Wolfe averaged 21 points a night, rattling the rims for 38 points against both MVC and Orcas Island, while Alex Murdy was viewed by CHS coaches as their “best lockdown defender.”

Rounding out the varsity awards, TJ Rickner copped the Coaches Award, with Daniel Olson and Sage Downes receiving Four-Year awards for playing every season of their prep career.

Grady Rickner and Xavier Murdy were honored as team captains.

On the JV side of things, Cole White won the Wolf Way Player of the Year award, with Jonathan Valenzuela (Offensive Player of the Year), William Davidson (Defensive Player of the Year), and Zane Oldenstadt (Coaches Award) also taking home certificates.

White and Valenzuela were JV team captains.

Sherman and his coaching staff (Hunter Smith, Greg White, and Randy Bottorff) also recognized the people who worked hard behind the scenes to make the season a success.

That included Courtney Pilgrim for “keeping our away books and helping to provide our away game food,” Morgan White for “setting up our team gear store and designing the stuff for us,” and CHS Athletic Director Willie Smith for “all of his hard work to make our season a possibility.”

Also feted was the Coupeville Booster Club, which purchased new warm-up tops for the team.

Ryanne Knoblich played strongly for both the Wolf varsity and JV.

Kylie Chernikoff nabbed the Coaches Award to go with a First-Team All-League nod.

Successful season, successful banquet.

Coming off a campaign in which they finished second in the Northwest 2B/1B League, beating everyone except two-time defending state champ La Conner, the Coupeville High School volleyball squad had plenty of honors to bestow.

Seniors Maddie Vondrak, Kylie Chernikoff, Jaimee Masters, and Chelsea Prescott all received four-year awards for playing every season.

Prescott and Vondrak shared captain honors, with Prescott tabbed as varsity MVP and Vondrak bringing home Most Inspirational.

Jill Prince (Most Improved) and Chernikoff (Heart of the Wolf – Coaches Award) round out the varsity honorees.

In addition, JV awards went to Maya Lucero (MVP), Skylar Parker (Most Improved), and Allie Lucero (Most Inspirational).
