Every flex, every ounce of sweat, all captured on film.

Coupeville High School track and field stars put up strong efforts Saturday, shining brightly at the district meet being held in their home stadium.

Along for the ride was photo whiz kid John Fisken, who delivers the photos seen above and below.

Logan Martin kicked off the postseason in style.

The Coupeville High School senior claimed a pair of titles Wednesday at the Northwest 2B/1B League Track and Field Championships in La Conner.

Martin topped the field in the shot put and discus, while junior Aidan Wilson won the 800 and the Wolf boys hit the tape first in the 4 x 100 relay.

Coupeville’s baton gods were senior Caleb Meyer and juniors Reiley Araceley, Tim Ursu, and Dominic Coffman.

In fairly tight battles, perennial power Mount Vernon Christian held on to win both girls and boys team titles.

MVC nipped Coupeville 145-128 on the boys side, while holding off La Conner 144-110 for the girls win.

The Wolf girls, who nabbed five second-place finishes, were third with 51 points.

Coupeville had a strong team-wide showing Wednesday, with its athletes combining for 37 PR’s.

The league championships were the first leg on a four-meet excursion through the postseason.

Next up is the 11-team District 1 Championships, which are set for May 14 in Coupeville.

After that comes the 22-team Bi-District meet May 20 at W.F. West High School in Chehalis, which pits District 1 (Coupeville and companions) against District 4 (foes like Kalama and Adna).

Finally, the best of the best advance to the state meet May 26-28 at Eastern Washington University in Cheney.

And that’s a wrap.

The Coupeville High School girls basketball program brought the 2021-2022 season to an official end Friday with a season-ending awards banquet.

Coaches Megan Smith, Greg Turcott, Alex Evans, Cherie Smith, and Lark Gustafson handed out letters and certificates, providing tangible evidence of a season well-played.

The Wolf varsity girls finished third in the seven-team Northwest 2B/1B League, trailing just state powerhouses La Conner and Mount Vernon Christian, while the JV hoops stars showed rapid improvement as the season progressed.

When it came time for awards, players voted on four of five awards — Offensive and Defensive MVP, Most Improved, and Most Inspirational.

Their mentors made the decision on two Coaches Awards, which were given to players who made a big-time commitment.

“It was given to these players because they were always excited to be there,” Megan Smith said. “They worked hard no matter what, always wanted to improve.

“They were willing to do whatever was asked of them and were an all-around great person to be around.”

Aidan Wilson was in fine form.

The Coupeville High School junior kicked off a new track and field season Wednesday in La Conner by claiming victory in three different events.

Competing in a nine-team meet at Jack Whitaker Field, Wilson captured titles in the 800 and long jump, while joining Reiley Araceley, Caleb Meyer, and Dominic Coffman on a victorious 4 x 100 relay squad.

Carolyn Lhamon (shot put) and Logan Martin (discus) also earned titles in the season opener, with both Wolf teams finishing second in the team standings.

The La Conner girls edged Coupeville 137.5-109.5, while the Mount Vernon Christian boys held off the Wolves 163.5-132.5.

Friday Harbor, Grace Academy, Lopez Island, Shoreline Christian, Lummi Nation, and Cedar Park Christian-Mountlake Terrace also competed.

Coupeville was strong across the board, recording 62 PR’s on the day.

“It was an amazing (long) day!,” said CHS girls coach Elizabeth Bitting. “These athletes now know where they stand and where they want to be.

“So much determination in them. So proud of them all!!!! SO PROUD!”

The final score was foul, but the photos were fair.

While the Coupeville High School girls basketball team couldn’t quite hang with a powerhouse La Conner crew Thursday, the Wolves did win the snapshot war.

The pics above and below come to us from wanderin’ photographer John Fisken.

To see everything he shot, and ponder the possibility of purchasing some early Christmas presents for third-cousin Nell in Nacogdoches, pop over to:



Gwen Gustafson has places to be, and baskets to score.

Lyla Stuurmans has the perfect angle.

They said box-out, and Carolyn Lhamon 100% understood the assignment.

Audrianna Shaw can taste the defense’s fear.

Jackie Saia, Queen of the photo game, waits for the action to get cracklin’.

Izzy Wells is en pointe. Yes, a ballet reference. I’m classy like that … sometimes.
