It’s a sisterhood, 241 players strong.

The modern era of Coupeville High School girls’ basketball launched in 1974, in the wake of Title IX, and Wolf players have been scoring buckets for 49 seasons now.

We still don’t have scoring stats for that first CHS team, since the Whidbey News-Times flat-out didn’t cover their season.

But other than that, the effort to track down every last point scored by a varsity Wolf girl has been mostly successful.

There’s still a small question about a couple of games in the early-to-mid 2000’s (justice for Brittany Black!), but overall, we’re feeling pretty good about things.

With Wednesday’s playoff loss to La Conner, five Coupeville seniors put a stamp on their prep careers, with all five having cracked triple-digit scoring.

Maddie Georges, a four-year varsity vet, exits as the #24 all-time scorer — even while having lost games to the pandemic.

Then there’s Alita Blouin, who averaged almost 10 points a game in the 23 contests where she avoided injuries and got to stay on the floor.

Carolyn Lhamon, Gwen Gustafson, and Ryanne Knoblich also topped 100 points, with the latter two tying with exactly 122 career points apiece.

Looking forward to the 2023-2024 season, which (red alert, Willie Smith! red alert, Willie Smith!!!) will be the program’s 50th, there are six possible returnees who have already scored at the varsity level.

Lyla Stuurmans, currently a sophomore, tops that pack with 130 points, which puts her #89 with two seasons still ahead of her.

She would have to make quite the jump to catch sweet-shooting gunner Brianne King at the top of the list, but is only 101 points from cracking the top 50.

A little further down, fellow super sophomore Katie Marti lurks with 58 points and counting.

As she becomes a bigger part of the team’s offense, could she race past mom Christi Messner (125), Aunt Aimee Bishop (168), cousin Breeanna Messner (235), or Aunt Judy Marti (545)?

Only time, and the unpredictable bounce of ball on hardwood, will tell.

For now, time for all Coupeville girls hoops players, past, present, and future, to gaze upon the updated list as it sits mid-day Feb. 16, 2023.

We’re talking 36,869 points and counting.

With 253 points and one season left to play, Maddie Georges is #43 on the CHS girls basketball career scoring chart. (Photos by JohnsPhotos.net)

Another season in the books, another batch of scoring stats to add to the history of the program.

The 2021-2022 campaign was the 48th season for Coupeville High School girls basketball, which kickstarted its program in 1974.

During that time there have been 238 Wolves who have rattled the rims for at least a point during a varsity game.

Or so we can say with some certainty.

The truth is that first team in ’74-’75 exists outside of time and space, as the local newspaper didn’t cover its games, and a scorebook has never surfaced during my sleuthing.

So the career scoring chart I have amassed is close to the final word, but definitely not 100% correct. Yet.

With the current season having reached its conclusion, after a three-game playoff run, it’s time to take a look at where everyone stacks up in the all-time shuffle.

Here we go, with the nine active Wolf players who can return next season in bold:

Savina Wells exits her freshman season already sitting at #85 on the all-time chart.

They are the magnificent seven.

In the history of the Coupeville High School girls basketball program, 229 players have scored at least one point in a varsity game.

From the larger group, there is an ultra-exclusive inner gathering, however.

Seven players have, at one point or another, held the individual career scoring title for the Wolf girls.

The shortest run atop the charts was for a single season, while the school’s current #1 (girls or boys) has held her spot for 18 seasons and counting.

Now, keep in mind the scoring stats for the first team in program history, the 1974-75 squad, have vanished into history, as the local newspapers and the school’s yearbook both whiffed when it came to recording those numbers.

But, that first season would only (maybe) affect the very start of this list, as scoring totals quickly shot up once the ’80s arrived.

So, with that small caveat out of the way, here we go, the semi-official CHS girls basketball individual career scoring record-holders:

This isn’t rocket science.

The most-sustained run of team success the Coupeville High School girls basketball program has enjoyed came in the 2000’s.

While the Wolves launched in 1974, and put together some very-strong runs in the mid and late ’90s, all three of the state tourney banners they own were captured between 2002-2005.

So, it’s no surprise that when you compile the 50 best single-season scoring totals put up by a Wolf girls hoops player, 21 of those campaigns came between 2001-2009.

Other than that, it’s fairly well-balanced, with 15 slots occupied by players from the ’90s, and seven performances apiece coming from the ’80s and the 2010’s.

There are two CHS girls who sit atop the pile, with Brianne King and Zenovia Barron both landing in the top 50 four times.

Ann Pettit, Makana Stone, Ashley Ellsworth-Bagby, and Megan Smith have three slots apiece, with Maureen Wetmore, Tina Lyness, Judy Marti, Lexie Black, Erica Lamb, Terry Perkins, and Brittany Black notching two appearances.

Overall, 29 players have combined to account for the top 50 individual seasons.

Now, there are a couple of small caveats, though the latter matters more than the former.

We have no scoring stats for that first modern-day team, the 1974-1975 squad.

Though, based on other early scoring totals, I’m 99.99992% sure no one from that season would make this list.

More troubling is the fact we’re missing 2-3 games each from three different seasons, so our totals for 2003-2004, 2005-2006, and 2006-2007 are not fully complete.

That affects four players.

Lexie Black, Vanessa Davis, and Brittany Black each have a season where they make the top 50, but could be higher on the chart with those missing games.

I’ve marked those campaigns with asterisks below.

The other person being possibly short-changed is Megan Smith, who I have with 161 points for her freshman season in 2006-2007 (minus two missing games), which is just 13 points off of cracking the top 50.

While she has the #10, #16, and #25 seasons, if we had complete numbers from 06-07, it’s very likely she joins King and Barron in the four-timers club.

With that being said, the 50 best CHS girls single-season scoring totals:

The same goes for Kyla Briscoe.

But not for Lauren Rose, as she’s joined by Lauren Escalle and Lauren Grove in Wolf hoops history.

Want to have a daughter grow up to score buckets for the Coupeville High School varsity basketball team?

Give her a first name starting with the letter M.

Want her to make history, though?

Give her a first name starting with the letter F, O, Q, U, or X.

After frittering away quarantine time by going through my scoring records, which cover the modern-day history of the Wolf girls program (1974-2020), those are some of the facts I’ve unearthed.

In the 46 varsity seasons played at CHS, there have been 229 girls who have tallied at least a single free throw for the Wolves, with those players bearing 183 different first names.

The most common of those monikers?

Sarah, repped by Powell, Mouw, Burgoyne, Wright, and Vass.

Unless we play fast and loose with Jennifer, which has four (Pettit, Bailey, Eelkema, and Meyer), but could technically add a fifth and sixth in Jen Canfield and Jennie Cross.

After that, there’s a seven-way tie with three each for Amanda, Courtney, Emily, Lauren, Lindsey, Nicole, and Tina.

M, with 26 girls, edges out K (25), J (24), and C (23) for the top spot, while no girl with a first name starting with the aforementioned F, O, Q, U, or X has ever scored in a CHS varsity uniform.

Yes, it’s true, the fairly rare Z edges out F and O, which I would have thought might have been fairly common.

Score the win for Zenovia Barron and Zarah Leaman.
