Scritch-scratch, scritch-scratch, the pencil continues to mark up the schedule.

Pandemic concerns have erased three more games from the fall sports campaign, with Coupeville High School volleyball losing two matches, and boys soccer one game.

In the world of spikes and sets, both Darrington and La Conner have put their programs into two-week quarantines following positive Covid cases.

That means Coupeville x’s out a road trip to La Conner April 29, and a home match against Darrington May 1.

Over on the soccer pitch, the Wolf boys were scheduled to head to Grace Academy in Marysville Wednesday, but the Eagles announced Tuesday they couldn’t play.

From a quick look at the Grace Academy schedule, the school has eliminated its next three matches.

And we roll on, pencil in hand, eraser(s) at the ready, here in the Age of Coronavirus.

Maddie Vondrak (left) and Lucy Tenore (10) rise up to finish off a point.

Every kill, every dig, every hustle play.

They all count when it comes times to adding up stats, as shown in the numbers below.

Giving us a snapshot of the Coupeville High School varsity volleyball squad through April 20, the numbers reflect four matches having been played in this pandemic-altered season.

Coupeville’s most-recent match, a five-set thriller against Mount Vernon Christian, enabled the Wolves to rack up some big numbers.

Sophomore Maddie Georges set career highs against the Hurricanes, with 46 assists and 11 digs, while seniors Kylie Chernikoff and Chelsea Prescott also put up best-ever numbers.

Chernikoff went off for 24 spikes and 10 digs while rumbling with MVC, with Prescott racking up 23 kills and 14 digs.

“It was a fun match to be a part of and watch this team work through,” said Wolf coach Cory Whitmore. “They had to find it within themselves to dig deep and adjust, as well as find the emotional and physical energy within as well.

“Proud of this team and their resiliency and very much looking forward to continuing to grow.”

Right back where she belongs.

Coupeville grad Makana Stone has been almost a fixture on the National Basketball League Team of the Week in her first season playing basketball in England, a proper reward for her titanic two-way play.

And boom, another Tuesday rolls around, and there is she again.

This time out Stone, who reps Loughborough University these days, is being honored for a near triple-double thrown down this past Saturday in a win over Thames Valley.

The former Wolf racked up 13 points, 15 rebounds, and nine steals, while hitting a big bucket late to seal the victory for a Rider squad which is 10-4 overall, 10-2 with Stone in the lineup.

In a nice twist, one of the other honorees is sweet-shooting Mady Burdett, Stone’s former running mate for four sizzlin’ seasons at Whitman College.

Burdett now plays for Nottingham Trent and rippled the nets for 26 points, including six three-balls.

On the season, Stone sits with 185 points, 177 rebounds, 26 assists, 44 steals, and seven blocks.

Loughborough, which has four regular-season games left on its schedule, returns to action this Saturday, April 24, when it scraps with league cellar-dweller Cardiff Met.
