First, some good news.

The Coupeville High School varsity girls’ basketball team was back at nearly full-strength Friday, with senior Carolyn Lhamon back in the lineup after missing a chunk of games while tending to a foot injury.

The Wolves most-imposing presence in the paint, she could be a big help down the stretch, as CHS chases a playoff berth.

Now, the bad news.

While Lhamon played strongly in limited minutes, there’s not much she, or any of her teammates could do to slow down host Mount Vernon Christian.

Playing on Senior Night and unveiling their state title banner from last season, the Hurricanes buried eight three-balls en route to a 62-17 win over the visiting Wolves.

The loss drops Coupeville to 1-3 in Northwest 2B/1B League play, 5-8 overall.

The game caps a brutal stretch of three-straight road games against championship contenders, coming on the heels of contests against MVC’s fellow state powers, Neah Bay and La Conner.

While Coupeville hits the bus one more time to kick off next week, that trip will to be to Concrete Tuesday, to face a 1-12 Lion team.

Not the same thing, you would assume.

Facing off with MVC, the Wolves did stay scrappy in the first quarter, just like the first time these two squads played.

Lyla Stuurmans hit a driving layup, off a feed from Maddie Georges, to knot the game at 2-2, and the Wolves were still within 8-3 in the final moments of the first quarter.

Unfortunately for Megan Richter’s team, that was where the Hurricanes began to assert their dominance, both in the paint and from behind the arc.

MVC closed the opening frame with a three-ball, then broke the game open with a 15-0 surge in the second quarter, a run which featured one layup after another.

Georges popped a three-ball to stop the bleeding for a moment, with Lhamon rolling through the paint shortly after for a layup of her own, but the game slipped away fast.

The Hurricanes closed the half with a 12-2 tear, raining down four three-balls in a row, the final one beating the buzzer by .00001 of a second.

MVC kept its magic alive in the third, again nailing a buzzer-beating trey, this one pushing the lead out to 40 points and setting off a running clock across the final eight minutes.

Coupeville played aggressively on defense to the end, with Stuurmans collecting a block, but was only able to score on back-to-back possessions once in the game.

Ryanne Knoblich paced the Wolves with a team-high six points, with Georges (5), Stuurmans (3), Lhamon (2), and Gwen Gustafson (1) also scoring.

Alita Blouin, Mia Farris, Katie Marti, Jada Heaton, and Skylar Parker also saw floor time for CHS, with Marti bouncing off said floor 9,271 times while doing her best to slow down Mount Vernon’s imposing post players.

In a side note, Georges, a senior point guard, passed one of Coupeville’s coaches on the all-time scoring chart Friday night.

Now sitting with 321 points, she nudges past Wolf assistant Mia Littlejohn (317), and is tied with Marie Grasser at #34 all-time for a program launched in 1974.

For you youngsters out there, Marie Grasser — the first true CHS girls’ basketball star — is known as Mrs. Bagby these days, the same Mrs. Bagby who you used to see every day in the school office.

The more you know.

Four is the magic number.

Matching the Wolf boys, the Coupeville High School girls’ soccer squad saw a quartet of players honored when Northwest 2B/1B All-Conference teams were announced Monday night.

Senior defender Nezi Keiper and senior midfielder Carolyn Lhamon were named First-Team picks, while sophomore forward Ayden Wyman and senior goaltender Anna Myles received Honorable Mention status.

There is no Second-Team roster for NWL girls’ soccer, with just four teams playing versus the nine who line up on the boys’ side of things.

Mount Vernon Christian senior forward Abby Russell was tabbed as league MVP, while her mentor, Mike Russell, won Coach of the Year.

Friday Harbor was handed the Team Sportsmanship Award.

The nets await.

Another season of Coupeville High School girls’ basketball — the 49th overall — kicks off Monday with the first day of practice.

The first games arrive Nov. 30 with a road trip to Langley to face archrival South Whidbey, and once again the art of recording scoring stats begins anew.

I’m still missing any point totals from the inaugural 1974-1975 season, thanks to the local newspaper flat-out declining to write about any of those games.

The Whidbey News-Times Sports Editor of the day, Wallie Funk, may be a journalistic legend, but he had blind spots, and a glaring one was his failure to acknowledge female athletes.

But other than that season, we’re sitting pretty good, having been able to document the scoring efforts of 238 Wolf girls.

Of that group, there are eight active players, should they choose to play this season.

Senior Maddie Georges tops that group, having tossed in 253 career points, which places her at #43 on the all-time scoring chart.
