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.

Maddie Georges had a very-successful freshman season on the hardwood. (Photo by JohnsPhotos.net)

Young, feisty, and ready for success.

Following in the footsteps of older brother Alex Evans, Coupeville High School freshman Maddie Georges made an immediate impact for the Wolf hoops squad.

She was on the varsity roster and playing quality minutes from day one, became a full-time starter by midseason, and helped CHS go 12-7.

Along the way, Georges rattled the rims for 86 points, not bad for a pass-first point guard primed to inherit the mantle of floor leadership from the graduating Scout Smith.

But how does that point total compare to previous Wolf freshmen?

Pretty, pretty, pretty good, as it’s the seventh-most by a CHS frosh girl since the modern-day program kicked off back in 1974.

There have been 229 players who have scored a varsity point in the last four-and-a-half decades, with the only ones to top Georges during their own freshmen seasons going on to be four-year stars for the program.

Here’s how Mad Dog compares with the best young female hoops stars the Wolves have produced, with their freshman and career totals:

 

Brianne King — 275 in 1999-2000 — 1549 career (#1 all-time)
Zenovia Barron — 242 in 1994-1995 — 1270 career (#2)
Ashley Ellsworth-Bagby — 163 in 1998-1999 — 892 career (#6)
Megan Smith — 161 in 2006-2007 — 1042 career (#4)
Makana Stone — 116 in 2012-2013 — 1158 career (#3)
Cassidi Rosenkrance — 88 in 2008-2009 — 423 career (#23)
Maddie Georges — 86 in 2019-2020 — ? career (#?)

Who scored more? Sherry (Bonacci) Roberts (left) or Aimee (Messner) Bishop? The answer awaits below.

As I obsessively chart individual varsity basketball scoring totals for Coupeville High School players, the girls have been somewhat easier than the boys.

That’s largely because the girls program has been around a lot less years, debuting in 1974, while the boys kicked off things way back in 1917.

Which doesn’t mean things are perfect.

That 1974-1975 season has evaded me so far, as the school yearbook and the Whidbey News-Times combined to record diddly and squat.

The late Wallie Funk, WNT Sports Editor of the time, is an ink-stained legend, and truly deserves all the accolades.

But he had one screaming blind spot, and that was he apparently had little desire to write about female athletics.

Over time, things got better bit by bit, and thanks to newspaper stories, school yearbooks, and coaches who held on to their scorebooks, I have been able to pull together a pretty complete scoring chart.

Is it 100%?

Nope, as there are a couple of small quibbles with seasons in the 2000’s, to go along with that AWOL 1974-1975 campaign, but we’re pretty darn close.

So, with a couple of key seasons from the ’50s (and pretty much all the ’20s and ’30s) missing for the boys, the Wolf girls chart is definitely closer to being the final word.

With that in mind, a look at the 229 CHS female hoops stars who have scored in a varsity game, with numbers updated through the just-completed 2019-2020 season.
