They can’t win on the field this spring, but they can win in the digital arena.

The COVID-19 pandemic shut down spring sports right as games were about to begin, leaving every Coupeville team, high school and middle school, sitting at a permanent 0-0.

But, as long as the blog is running, we can take every Wolf coach, set their fan bases at war, and sit back and watch the sweet, sweet page hits reign down.

And the votes, of course, since that will determine which spring coach is the coachiest coach of them all.

It’s simple.

There are 26 coaches, and we’re including those with paid gigs as well as volunteers, while hopefully not leaving anyone out.

You get 50 hours to vote as many times as your little heart desires, with the poll starting Saturday, April 18 at 3 PM and finishing Monday, April 20 at 5 PM.

The prize for the winner? A brief burst of internet fame and a warm glow in their chest.

Let the madness commence.

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).

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!
