They stood tall at the Falls.

The Coupeville Middle School cross country program sent 25 runners to the line Thursday at a six-school meet in Granite Falls, with Olivia Hall and Beckett Green capturing team honors.

Both Wolves nabbed 8th place in the individual standings, while tangling with runners from powerhouses like King’s and Langley.

The 1.7-mile course tested the young Coupeville harriers, while still having a lot less hills than their most-recent meet.

The Wolves get back at it Friday, Oct. 7, when they compete at the Hole in the Wall Invitational at Lakewood High School.

No fear, just joy.

Coupeville Middle School cross country runners tackled one of the tougher courses they will face this season Saturday at the 15th annual King’s Roller Coaster Trail Run in Shoreline.

To the delight of coach Elizabeth Bitting, her young athletes responded exactly the way she hoped on the 1.6-mile course.

“From the moment we arrived at King’s the air was electric!” she said.

“Music playing, schools walking the course, families eager to cheer on their runners, pumped coaches, the smile on my face and excitement in my heart couldn’t be diminished!

“The athletes were so nervous when we walked the course and they saw the roller coaster hills but during their races they ate those hills up!” Bitting added.

“Compared to last week’s times EVERY athlete set a PR! It was AMAZING!!!!!”

Coupeville placed seven runners — five girls and two boys — in the top 10, with both squads claiming second in the team title chase.

The Wolves get right back at it next week, with a trip to Granite Falls set for Thursday, Sept. 29.

Faster times, higher heights, longer distances.

The Coupeville Middle School track and field team had a huge day Wednesday in Langley, capturing four individual wins and smashing 71 PR’s at a four-team meet.

The Wolves went toe-to-toe with Lakewood, Sultan, and the meet hosts, and stood tall.

Leading the way were 6th grader Marin Winger, who won the 400, 7th grader Myra McDonald (long jump) and 8th graders Malachi Somes (1600) and George Spear (800).

As the young Wolves continue to shatter personal bests and fine-tune their skills under the leadership of coaches Paige Spangler and Jon Gabelein, the schedule remains a busy one.

Next up is a four-team meet May 11 at Lakewood, followed by a four-school rumble in Coupeville May 18.

CMS cross country runners fuel up Wednesday at the league championship meet. (Elizabeth Bitting photos)

Noelle Western delivered Coupeville’s best performance.

The circle is complete.

Ending the season where it also began, the Coupeville Middle School cross country squad competed Wednesday at the Cascade League Championships.

Meet host Langley swept both team titles during the 140-runner event, while Coupeville claimed fourth in the girls race, and sixth in the boys.

Individual titles went to Reed Atwood of Langley and Caleb Greenland of Lakewood.

Coupeville placed a runner on the awards stand, with 8th grader Noelle Western claiming 9th place in the girls race.

The Wolves sent 15 runners to the line, with eight of the nine who competed in the season opener coming back around to set a PR on the same course.

“It’s always nice to finish where we first started the season,” said CMS coach Elizabeth Bitting. “So many PR’s, and so many happy faces!

“I am very proud of these athletes,” she added.

“I wish the 8th graders the best of luck in high school and I hope to see everybody else return in the fall! GO WOLVES!!!”
