Central Whidbey Little League needs softball and baseball coaches. (Jackie Saia photo)

Now’s the time to get in the game.

With spring approaching, Central Whidbey Little League is in dire need of coaches for its baseball and softball teams.

CWLL is looking for 4-5 more volunteers, who will primarily be working with players in the 8-10 age group.

If interested, contact CWLL President Gordon McMillan at (206) 550-7146.

It was the last poll of the decade, and it came down to a mere handful of votes.

In the end, Coupeville High School boys basketball coach Brad Sherman rallied to edge out CMS boys hoops guru Greg White and lay claim to the “much-coveted” title of “Top Coach of the Winter 2019.”

Sherman finished with 176 votes in our 13-coach, 50-hour poll, which wrapped Monday morning, while White racked up 172 tallies.

Rounding out the top five were Alex Evans (154), Arik Garthwaite (108), and Megan Smith (43).

Left to right, top to bottom, are CHS coaches Michael Barenburg, BreAnna Boon, Tyson Boon, Kwamane Bowens, Bobby Carr, Marcus Carr, Brett Casey, Kyle Nelson, Krimson Rector, Bennett Richter, Luke Samford, Gabe Shaw, Chris Smith, Ken Stange, Cory Whitmore, and Robert Wood.

CMS coaches (l to r) Erin Locke, Reese Cernick, Jenna Vester, Elizabeth Bitting, Sarah Lyngra.

This doesn’t have to turn into a brawl.

But it probably should.

Twenty-one coaches — 16 from Coupeville High School, and five from our middle school — enter a (digital) room, and 50 hours later, one emerges.

The battle to be named “Top Coach of the Fall” kicks off Saturday, Oct. 5 at 9 AM, and closes Monday, Oct. 7 at 11 AM.

During that time frame, you can vote as many times as your little heart (and voting fingers) desire.

There are no restrictions, and you won’t be blocked in any way.

Or, at least that’s the hope.

Now, as in every poll/rumble of the past here on Coupeville Sports, there’s no real trophy, just a nice warm glow in the chest of the winner.

And the chance for that coach to lord it over every other coach, at least until we launch the “Top Coach of the Winter” a couple of months from now.

To the coaches involved, if you don’t care about the award, just mind your business and let me get as many sweet, sweet page hits as possible.

He said with a smile.

And if you do care? Let the bodies hit the floor!

Registration for Central Whidbey Little League begins Jan. 15. (Photo by JohnsPhotos.net)

Frost on the ground? Must be time to start thinking about Little League.

Seriously, though, while it might feel like we’re still in the middle of winter, there is a hint of spring in the air, at least on the internet.

Registration for Central Whidbey Little League baseball and softball kicks off Tuesday, Jan. 15 and you can get your little sluggers signed up without having to leave your house.

Also, if you’ve ever thought about wanting to return to the field yourself, CWLL is looking for people interested in coaching T-Ball, Minors baseball and Rookie baseball.

L to r, top to bottom, it’s Natasha Bamberger, Hailey Bell, Nathan Bellamy, BreAnna Boon, Tyson Boon, Kwamane Bowens, Bobby Carr, Marcus Carr, Kyle Nelson, Bennett Richter, Gabe Shaw, Chris Smith, Ken Stange, Cory Whitmore and Robert Wood.

CMS coaches join the fracas. L to r, top to bottom, are Casie Greve, Elizabeth Bitting, Michael Davidson, Junior Scroggins, Sarah Lyngra and Brett Casey.

Let’s get ready to rumble, one more time!

Nothing sends a jolt through the crowd quite like dropping a hot ‘n spicy poll in the midst of an otherwise sleepy morning, then giving everyone limited time (but unlimited votes) to decide the very fate of the universe.

Instead of waiting until the end of the school year, and having way too many people involved, I’m jumping the gun on my annual Coach of the Year poll and turning it into a Fall Sports Coach of the Season event.

Even then, we’re looking at 21 men and women entering the arena, covering six high school squads and three middle school programs.

If this goes over well, I’ll be back to drop separate Winter and Spring versions of the poll.

And, if not, well, I’ll get a lot of page hits in the next two days. So, I’m fine either way.

If you haven’t been involved in a Coupeville Sports poll, or haven’t been paying attention during previous battle royals, here’s the rules:

There are none.

From the moment the poll drops, at around 9 AM Saturday, Oct. 13, until it closes 48 hours later, at 9 AM, Monday, Oct. 14, you can vote as many times as your little fingers desire.

Whip up your fan base. Fight for the glory of being the “CHS/CMS Top Coach of the Fall.” Just don’t expect an actual trophy when you win.

Or completely ignore my poll, go about your daily business and roll your eyes at me the next time we cross paths.

Completely your call.

But, like I said, it’s Wild West rules, pretty much.

I’m not going to stop you from mashing the keys on whatever device(s) you have, and if WordPress itself tries to slow down your voting (which it has on very rare occasions), you can usually beat it by jumping to a different device.

And with that, let the bodies hit the floor!
