They were loud, and they were proud.

The joint was packed Wednesday, as Coupeville High School’s basketball teams celebrated opening night with a pair of varsity wins.

The Wolf girls toppled Granite Falls, while the CHS boys whacked Oak Harbor, sending Coupeville fans home happy.

The pics above and below, which come to us courtesy John Fisken, capture Wolf fans, and cheerleaders, hard at work bringing the noise, and the funk.

Give ’em some overtime.

With two football games in five days, the Coupeville High School cheerleaders were busy, and yet, as always, their spirits never flagged.

Well, it’s not the Steelers, but it’s a start.

Rovin’ photo man John Fisken was originally going to shoot the girls’ high school soccer jamboree in Oak Harbor Thursday.

Then he went and got all professional on us, nabbing a press pass to shoot the final Seattle Seahawks preseason game against the Raiders.

So, while the Hawks were dismantling their much-hated rivals 31-21, our guy was in there shooting the NFL like an insider.

And then he was nice enough to let me run a couple of his photos, so we’ll back off giving him any grief over skipping out on soccer.

Of course, if he wants to shoot a true championship team, he’ll need to head to Pittsburgh one of these days.

You know, where they actually have more than one Lombardi trophy in the case.

I kid. I kid… Go Steelers!!
