Banish the dirt, and help a good cause.

The Coupeville High School volleyball team is back at it Saturday, June 22, running a charity car wash to raise money for all things spiker-related.

The soap bubbles fly from 10-2:30 at Ebey Academy, which is located at 140 SE Terry Road, across from the high school and just down from Prairie Center Red Apple Market.

Your donations will benefit one of the most successful sports programs at CHS.

The Wolves are coming off a season in which they finished 11-5, second in the North Sound Conference behind just King’s, which finished 3rd at the 1A state tourney.

Before that, Coupeville won back-to-back Olympic League titles and went to state in 2017.

Two days until the biggest night of the summer.

People from near and far are expected to pack the Coupeville Rec Hall this Friday, Aug. 19 for an auction fundraiser to help an ailing Wolf hoops star.

Bennett Boyles, 11, finished three weeks of treatment for inoperable tumors on his brain stem and just returned home from Seattle, but he and his family still face a tough road ahead.

Bennett’s teachers at the Ebey Academy have been spearheading fundraisers all summer to help his mom, CHS grad Lucienne Rivera, a single mom of two who had to quit her job to take care of her son.

Friday night the Rec Hall will be jumping to the music of Jacobs Road, with more than 100 items up for auction.

Tickets are $10 and can be bought at the door (the rec hall is at 901 NW Alexander St., across the street from Christopher’s on Whidbey.)

The event, which runs from 6-10 PM, is open to all ages.

Beverages and hors d’oeuvres will be available, with wine and beer offered by donation thanks to Penn Cove Tap Room.

Some of the many items which will be up for auction:

Toby’s Tavern gift basket
Knead & Feed baking class
Framed, signed Steve Largent jersey
A party with Santa
A Seahawks tailgate party
Wine and cheese basket
A wheelbarrow full of beer
Photography sessions
A month of child care at Ebey Academy
Handyman hours
Oak Harbor Cinemas tickets
A fire pit with all the fixings

The rock outside CHS shows support for the town’s ailing hoops star.

They’re shooting for their teammate.

Adding a personal spin to the community’s ongoing efforts to help Bennett Boyles and his family, Coupeville Middle School basketball players will be scoring for two reasons this weekend.

The Wolves are sending two squads to Encumclaw for a tourney, and while there, every basket they score will go to help Boyles, their missing teammate.

The 11-year-old is in Seattle, undergoing weeks of treatment for an inoperable tumor on his brain stem.

His mom, CHS grad Lucienne Rivera, quit her job to be with him, and people near and far are stepping up to help the family pay their considerable expenses.

Ebey Academy, where teachers had the joy of welcoming Bennett on a regular basis, has been at the forefront of fundraising operations.

The Wolves hoops squads, coached by Nate Barton and Pat Kelley, will be eight-men strong this weekend.

Matthew Kelley, Alex Jimenez, Jake Mitten, Connor Barton, Danny Barajas, Caleb Meyer, Logan Martin and Miles Davidson will play in a 3 v 3 tourney.

Each player is asking fans to pledge money for baskets scored, with all proceeds going to their missing brother.

The team’s goal is to raise $500 this weekend for Boyles.

“We will take Enumclaw by storm,” Pat Kelley said. “We will play fair but HARD.

“The teams we leave in our wake will fear us and know that our effort and dedication is based on the LOVE we have for Bennett and his family!”

Total baskets from the tourney will be published here on Coupeville Sports after play is done Sunday.

Pledges can either be given to players or dropped off at Ebey Academy (140 SE Terry Road in Coupeville, across from the high school).
