When it’s been 34 years between trips, people tend to get excited.

The Coupeville High School boys basketball team left for Spokane, and the state tourney, Tuesday morning, the first such trek for the program since 1988.

Before the Wolves blew out of Cow Town and hit the open road, they got a send-off from classmates, parents, fans, teachers, and — loudest of all — the local elementary school kids.

Soak it in. No one can say for sure when that next trip will come.

With both varsity Coupeville High School basketball teams posting winning records this season — including the Wolf boys being a flawless 11-0 — the stands have been packed.

Even living in the Age of Coronavirus, with mask requirements in place, locals and off-Islanders alike have shown up for games.

When he’s not clicking action pics, wanderin’ photographer John Fisken often swings his camera towards the stands, as you can see in the photos above and below.

Hopefully they, and all their fans, will have much to cheer in the new year.
