The end doesn’t erase the journey.

The season came to a close Monday night for the Coupeville High School girls soccer team, as it fell 6-0 in Bothell to Cedar Park Christian.

With the loss, the Wolves were eliminated from the district playoffs and finish at 3-13-2 on the season.

But, after a campaign in which it was stung by injuries, including losing offensive juggernaut Genna Wright way back in the first half of the first game, CHS can look back on the season with pride.

The Wolves, with or without key starters, were very competitive each time on the pitch, and closed with some of their best efforts of the season.

Coupeville won two of its final three games, nipping Sultan 1-0 in a league tiebreaker, then bouncing Mount Baker 4-0 to capture the program’s first-ever playoff win.

CHS coach Kyle Nelson loses five quality seniors to graduation, with Avalon Renninger, Mallory Kortuem, Anna Dion, Tia Wurzrainer, and Natalie Hollrigel departing.

Renninger tallied 12 goals in her four years in a Wolf uniform, which puts her #5 on the career scoring chart, while Kortuem finishes as the #10 all-time scorer with six goals.

The cupboard isn’t bare, however, with Wright, who punched in 17 goals through her first two seasons, set to return for her senior season.

Other top players who can returning include goaltender Mollie Bailey, midfielders Sophia Martin, Carolyn Lhamon, Knight Arndt, and Audrianna Shaw, and defenders Nezi Keiper, Eryn Wood, and Mary Milnes.


2019 goal scorers:

Avalon Renninger – 6
Sophia Martin – 4
Anna Dion – 2
Mallory Kortuem – 2
Eryn Wood – 1
Tia Wurzrainer – 1

The status quo holds.

Three games, three shutouts Thursday left the North Sound Conference girls soccer standings basically unchanged.

Coupeville fell 5-0 at Cedar Park Christian, while King’s bounced Granite Falls 4-0 and South Whidbey eased past Sultan 2-0.

With six days, and two games per team, left in the regular season, South Whidbey (8-0, 12-0-1) and King’s (7-1, 10-4) are headed towards an Oct. 23 showdown in Shoreline.

With the win Thursday, Cedar Park (4-4, 7-5) eased a game ahead of Granite (3-5, 6-7), while Coupeville (1-7, 1-10-2) and Sultan (1-11-2) remain tied for the league’s fifth, and final playoff spot.

The Wolves travel to South Whidbey Oct. 21, then host Granite Falls Oct. 23, while Sultan hosts King’s, then travels to CPC the same days.

If CHS and the Turks remain knotted, having split their regular season match-ups by 1-0 scores, the two teams meet Oct. 24 in Coupeville to play a tiebreaker to decide who’s playoff-bound and who’s banquet-bound.

Thursday night, the Wolves were buffeted by Cedar Park’s shooters, but also the weather.

“It was a rather windy and wet game,” Coupeville coach Kyle Nelson remarked.

The two schools started the night with a JV game which was regarded as a “friendly” since CPC borrowed the Wolves a few players to make even sides.

While no final score was registered, Coupeville’s Lily Leedy did score a hat trick, rattling home three goals for the Wolves.

Unleash the wrecking crew.

Each time Coupeville High School C-Team volleyball coach Krimson Rector has sent her spikers to the floor this season, they have delivered a stellar performance.

After thumping host Cedar Park Christian Tuesday, the Wolf freshmen sit at a tidy 5-1 in North Sound Conference play, 6-1 overall.

That non-conference victory came against 2A Anacortes, while Coupeville’s only loss was a three-set war with undefeated King’s in which the Wolf C-Team came as close as any squad has to unseating the Knights this year.

Facing off for the second time with Cedar Park, Coupeville controlled play Tuesday, especially at the service line, where the battlin’ Lucero twins, Allie and Maya, delivered eight aces apiece.

Jordyn Rogers added five aces, while Gwen Gustafson and Vivian Farris both picked up one, as well.

“The girls played great with a new lineup,” Rector said.

At the net, the Wolves were opportunistic and brutally-efficient, with Rogers leading the squad with six kills.

She was joined by Ryanne Knoblich (5), Farris (4), and Maya Lucero (1).

With a trip Thursday to South Whidbey next on the agenda, the young Wolves are in the stretch run, with four more matches between now and Oct. 28.

You know, Cory Whitmore is doing pretty OK.

The Coupeville High School volleyball coach is in his fourth season at the school, and he’s now produced double-digit win totals in every campaign.

After rolling up 11, 13, and 11 wins over the past three seasons, Whitmore’s spike-happy assassins sit at 10-1 after a huge win in Bothell Tuesday night.

Bouncing host Cedar Park Christian 25-18, 26-24, 16-25, 25-18, the Wolves rise to 5-1 in North Sound Conference play, which leaves them a game off of King’s (6-0, 10-0) in the race for a league title.

The 10-1 start matches the best record at this point of the season since the 2004 CHS team, which eventually peaked at 14-1 before finishing 14-3.

Coupeville’s 2019 squad still has four regular season matches left on the schedule, starting with a trip Thursday to Langley to face South Whidbey.

Squaring off with Cedar Park, the Wolves were looking for their second win against the Eagles, while trying to improve on last year, when they split regular season matches before knocking CPC out of the district playoffs in meeting #3.

Tuesday’s tilt was, in some ways, a mirror image of the first match-up between the two squads, as Coupeville swept the first two sets, had a brief stumble in set three, then righted the ship.

“We definitely had our big ups and downs,” Whitmore said. “Had to work through some moments where we weren’t controlling the tempo, but ultimately our players came up big in the fourth to seal the win.”

Coupeville was playing its third match without big hitter Chelsea Prescott, as she recovers from an ankle injury, but the Wolves compensated by getting production across the board.

Maya Toomey-Stout matched her season-high with 19 kills, while Zoe Trujillo (12), Hannah Davidson (9), Maddie Vondrak (5), and Scout Smith (2) picked up the rest of Coupeville’s put-aways.

Toss in solid work controlling the floor, with Smith (12), Emma Mathusek (10), Lucy Sandahl (9), Toomey-Stout (8), Trujillo (6), Raven Vick (1), and Davidson (1) combining for 47 digs, and few CPC shots got away from the Wolves.

Coupeville also had four players — Lucy Tenore, Vondrak, Davidson, and Smith — collect blocks at the net, while Sandahl and Davidson served two aces apiece, and Smith handed out 35 assists.

Getting something from everyone on the floor is one of Whitmore’s goals, and the Wolves accomplished the task in style.

Lucy Sandahl had great clean play with long service runs, solid defense and one spectacular diving play to keep a rally alive and turn into offense and a big point to swing things in our favor,” Whitmore said.

“I thought Scout and Maya found their connection,” he added. “And Hannah went on two serving runs that scrambled CPC and gave us control of the fourth set.”

As he headed back to the bus, enjoying the victory while already looking ahead to the next match, Whitmore knew which stat he enjoyed the most, and it starts with a W.

“Overall, happy to win on the road,” he said.

Jaimee Masters and the Wolves are now 8-2 on the season.

Kylie Chernikoff had a message for her foes Tuesday night, and she delivered it loud ‘n proud.

“Get prepared, ladies, cause the butt-whuppins’ are a’coming!!”

Now, since Chernikoff is among the friendliest of all athletes, it’s possible she didn’t say those exact words out loud.

But let’s just imagine she was thinking them.

Cause she certainly played like it.

Delivering 15 kills, five services aces, and six digs, Chernikoff filled up a huge chunk of the score-book by herself, pacing the Coupeville High School JV volleyball squad to a straight-sets win in Bothell.

The 25-16, 25-22, 25-9 dismantling of host Cedar Park Christian lifts the Wolf young guns to a sterling 5-1 in North Sound Conference play, 8-2 overall.

With nine players seeing floor time for CHS, Wolf coach Chris Smith got a balanced, and very-effective attack.

The fab frosh were busy, as Maddie Georges doled out a team-high 18 assists, Alita Blouin went low to scrape five digs off the floor, and Taygin Jump mashed five kills, nailed five aces, and collected four digs.

Georges added four aces to the cause, while Abby Mulholland (one kill, one dig), Jill Prince (one kill), Jaimee Masters (two kills, one ace, one dig), Anya Leavell (one kill), and Ivy Leedy all brought intensity and hustle to their roles for the high-flying Wolves.

Coupeville returns to action Thursday, when it travels to Langley to face arch-rival South Whidbey.

The Wolves will be going for the season sweep of their next-door neighbors.
