The Coupeville High School boys basketball teams were busy Tuesday night, facing off with arch-rival South Whidbey, and that allowed wanderin’ paparazzi John Fisken a chance to deploy his many cameras.

The pics seen above are courtesy him, but are just the start of what he shot.

The camera goes both ways.

Sometimes John Fisken aims his lens at the action on the basketball court, but, just as often, he lets his gaze wander through the stands.

The photos seen above, which come to us courtesy of him, capture Wolf fans at a recent Coupeville High School boys basketball game.

A rebuilding Coupeville High School baseball team made positive strides Wednesday night in Shoreline.

While it wasn’t enough to stop a dangerous University Prep team, which rolled to an 11-2 non-conference win, its fifth straight victory, it’s all about the progress for the Wolves.

A young, fairly inexperienced club, which was missing its starting catcher and #1 hitter, started to wake up the bats.

Coupeville, which is 0-7 on the season, has been struggling to collect base-knocks.

Wednesday night they fared better, however, rapping out four hits off of strong Puma pitching.

Ulrik Wells bashed a double, while Matt Hilborn, Hawthorne Wolfe, and Jake Pease all notched singles.

Take those four hits, toss in five walks, and the Wolves scored more than a single run for just the second time this season.

Both runs came in the third inning, when CHS combined walks to Shane Losey and Dane Lucero with singles by Hilborn and Pease to plate a pair.

Coupeville had other chances, but stranded several base-runners, including Wells after he blasted his two-bagger.

Another bright spot for the Wolves was getting strong performances from a trio of young hurlers.

Sophomore starting pitcher Daniel Olson whiffed six batters across three innings of work, while freshmen Hawthorne Wolfe and Cody Roberts combined to add three more K’s between the fourth and sixth innings.

Roberts was especially sharp, tossing two shutout innings to end the game.

He surrendered just a single hit, while ringing up a pair of Pumas, including the final batter he faced.

University Prep, which bashed Coupeville’s North Sound Conference rivals Sultan (23-4) and Granite Falls (14-0) earlier, never delivered a true knockout punch to the Wolves.

The Pumas chipped away, scoring a run in the bottom of the first, before adding three in the second, five in the third, and a final two in the fourth.

They weren’t able to 10-run Coupeville like they had done with the Turks and Tigers, however, forcing them to play the full seven innings before walking off with a 5-2 record.

Whidbey Island’s most-active paparazzi surprised everyone by showing up down in the wilds of Nooksack Valley Saturday, as the Coupeville basketball teams played road games far from home.

The pics above are but a small taste of what he shot, however.

The dynasty rolls on.

After two close games Friday, Columbia Basin crushed Coupeville 14-2 Saturday in Ephrata to win the Babe Ruth baseball state title.

Having taken the championship series 2-1, Columbia Basin captures its fourth-straight crown in the 13-15 age group, and fifth in sixth years. It now advances to regionals in Portland, Oregon.

Coupeville, which finishes the season at 17-2, heads home after its best season in program history.

Under the guidance of coach Steve Hilborn, the Wolves were perfect in regular-season play before splitting their first two games with Columbia Basin.

They lost 3-2 in eight innings to open the tourney, then won 6-2 in the Friday nightcap.

Saturday’s game, though, was over fairly quickly.

Columbia Basin jumped on the Wolves for four runs in the first, another four in the second and six more in the third.

The champs were super effective in all aspects of the game Saturday, raining down 13 hits in the first three innings, while also taking advantage of three Coupeville errors and six walks.

The Wolves chipped away for a single run in both the second and fourth, but that was it as their bats short-circuited for the first time in three state playoff games.

The first run came home when Gavin Knoblich singled, moved to second when Andrew Score eked out a walk, then stole third and home.

Knoblich, who will be a junior at CHS this fall, also played a big part in his team’s second run, rapping an RBI double to plate Sage Sharp, who led off the fourth with a walk.

Coupeville’s only other hit on the day came courtesy Johnny Carlson, who lashed a third-inning single.

Xavier Murdy, Cody Roberts and Chelsea Prescott shared mound duty for the Wolves.
