The Luvera sisters, winnin’ and grinnin’.

The league is theirs to take.

Soundly thrashing the combined forces of Chimacum and Port Townsend Friday, the Coupeville High School girls’ tennis squad sent a message.

A loud one.

The chase for a championship banner in the 1A Olympic League goes through Cow Town, and the Wolves are dead-set on bringing home the hardware.

Friday’s 6-1 shellacking, coming on the heels of an equally-impressive dismantling of Klahowya in late March, lifts Coupeville to 2-0 in league play, 3-3 overall.

The Wolves still have two more matches apiece against their league rivals, but the opening wins were emphatic enough to make Vegas pick CHS as a sure thing.

Complete results:


1st Singles — Jacki Ginnings beat Laura De Michelli 6-2, 6-3

Not even a Brazilian foreign exchange student could ruffle the super-smooth Ginnings.

“Her game is developing rapidly as she plays matches,” said Coupeville coach Ken Stange. “Now that she’s into her third year of playing, Jacki’s now able to focus on the little subtleties of the game. She’s a real technician on the court!”

2nd Singles — Valen Trujillo beat Casi Rowland 6-0, 6-2

Valen continues to roll. She simply overpowered her opponent. Sometimes it can be difficult to play well against a player who hits with little pace and direction.

“Valen didn’t let her own level of play dropped; she applied constant pressure.”

3rd Singles — Wynter Thorne beat Amelia Breithaupt 6-2, 6-2

Formerly a doubles ace, Thorne made her debut as a singles player and was an immediate hit.

“Her style of play is well-suited for the singles court. She has a long swing that produced deep shots. Wynter did not disappoint.

Wynter looked quite comfortable. She moved well, she kept the ball deep, and she made her opponent run everywhere. She was all smiles. Her play made me feel like a genius. Her play also made me very happy.”

1st Doubles — Payton Aparicio/Sage Renninger lost to Ray Maki/Sarah Allen 6-3, 6-4

Coupeville’s freshmen ran into a duo that has been playing together for four years, and experience edged youthful enthusiasm.

Payton and Sage made a very skilled team earn the win. The Wolf frosh continue to grow, and they are staying positive. Their time will come!”

2nd Doubles — McKenzie Bailey/Jazmine Franklin beat Sophia Thurstan/Makenzie Richey 6-3, 6-1

McKenzie and Jazmine were on top of their games today! They are a pair that does not present a weak link.”

3rd Doubles — Sydney Autio/Micky LeVine beat Holly Taylor/Alyssa Wolfe 6-3, 6-4

The duo started hot, hit a rough spot, then regrouped and finished strong, winning Player of the Match honors.

4th Doubles — Ana Luvera/Ivy Luvera beat Amy Plastow/Tessa Rasmussen 6-1, 6-3

“They didn’t even think that they played well, but I assured them that they did. They played against players who played, well, non-traditionally.

“Ana and Ivy were able to overcome some odd bounces, and they sent their opponents packing.”


Bree Daigneault/McKenzie Meyer beat Chloe Patterson/Jordyn Johnson 8-1

Haleigh Deasy/Hanna Seiffert beat Gladys Hitt/Juliet Alban Vallat 8-6

Ashley Smith/Kameryn St. Onge beat Christina Bell/Emily Calkins 8-3

Maggie Crimmins/Kenzi LaRue lost to Amelia Breithaupt/Chloe Patterson 8-2
