The schedule, she keeps on changing.

Saturday’s Coupeville High School varsity baseball game against Concrete started as a road affair, then was bumped to being a home tilt due to poor weather forecasts.

Now, the hardball bout is just off the schedule, as the Lions say they don’t have enough eligible players to make the trip to Whidbey.

The Northwest 2B/1B League game will likely be rescheduled at some point, since it’s a conference rumble.

When that might be is up in the air with most of the guys who make the schedules out of the office for spring break at the moment.

Meanwhile, Coupeville’s softball game Saturday against Concrete, also bumped from a road trip to a home stand, is still on — as of 2:15 PM Friday.

Keep an eye on this space, though. Things still might change.

No freezing on the prairie for you today.

A couple of hours after Friday’s home girls’ tennis match was postponed due to looming rain, school officials also bumped softball off the schedule.

Coupeville was slated to host Cedar Park Christian-Bothell, but the game has been moved to Thursday, Apr. 6, with first pitch set for 4:00 PM.

The Wolves are still set to host Orcas Island Saturday at noon, with the game dedicated to cancer awareness, but Mother Nature will have the final say.

Here one second, gone the next.

A late-season addition to the Coupeville High School girls’ basketball schedule has fallen by the wayside.

The Wolves were set to welcome Lummi Nation to Whidbey Monday, Jan. 30 for non-conference varsity and JV games.

Now, thanks to the crush of the postseason, those games are gone with the wind.

Lummi, whose varsity girls’ squad sits at 12-2, starts playoff action Feb. 1.

With four regular-season league games left to play and a week to go, the Blackhawks needed to reclaim the Jan. 30 date, and are now scheduled to host conference rival Tulalip Heritage that night.

After Coupeville and Lummi plugged the game into the schedule, CHS officials originally moved Senior Night festivities to that night, to separate them from ones for Wolf boys’ basketball players and cheerleaders.

Now, all three Coupeville programs will honor their seniors Feb. 7, when La Conner comes to town.

No hacking and coughing for you.

Tuesday’s Coupeville High School girls soccer road trip was cancelled, thanks to poor air quality in Granite Falls.

It’s the latest in a string of contests preempted in Washington state by smoke from forest fires.

No definitive word on whether the non-conference game will be rescheduled, though odds are not great with the end of the regular season in sight, and both schools putting a priority on playing league games first.

For now, Coupeville’s booters head back to the practice field, with their next and possibly final clash set for next Tuesday, Oct. 25.

The Wolves host La Conner at 4 PM in the first half of a home doubleheader.

Senior Night festivities for both the CHS girls and boys will be held between games, before Coupeville’s boys face off with the Braves.

No luck for middle school harriers, either.

No one runs today.

Two cross country races scheduled for Wednesday were cancelled, for different reasons, sidelining teams from both Coupeville High School and Middle School.

The struggling Washington State ferry system upended CHS, derailing a four-team meet on Orcas Island.

Coupeville’s harriers had already made the bus trip from Central Whidbey to Anacortes but were unable to continue on to the San Juan Islands with no ferries leaving the dock.

Similar news awaited Mount Vernon Christian and Concrete, as the Samish was grounded due to “a lack of qualified crew.”

The meet has been tentatively rescheduled for next Wednesday, Sept. 28, depending on boat availability, said Coupeville Athletic Director Willie Smith.

Meanwhile, the middle school crew was headed to the Clinton ferry, which is operating today, only to have their meet in Sultan called off due to poor air quality.

“Those darn fires still causing havoc,” said CMS running guru Elizabeth Bitting.

“We had loaded the bus and were ready to get athletes on,” she added. “But good thing, because our bus then had to go pick up the high school team at the (other) ferry terminal.”

Both Wolf teams hope to get back into action Saturday, when they travel to Shoreline for the King’s Roller Coaster Trail Run.
