The camera rarely rests.

Bouncing between Oak Harbor and Coupeville, wanderin’ photo whiz kid John Fisken had a busy weekend, shooting a little here, a little there.

The photos above and below capture Wolf softball and girls tennis teams in action as both clinched Northwest 2B/1B League titles.

It was a unique farewell.

For the 16th time at Coupeville High School, girls tennis coach Ken Stange bid adieu to his seniors with heartfelt sentiment and a fair share of laughs.

Friday’s ceremony, which honored Emily Fiedler, Jaimee Masters, and Genna Wright, was like no others, as Age of Coronavirus regulations shortened the season and left everyone clad in masks.

But the trio still got its moment in the sun, and photos courtesy wanderin’ camera bug John Fisken.

Before leading their team to a fifth-straight win, the Wolf seniors each had their own farewell statement to deliver.

An excerpt from each:

 

Jaimee Masters:

Everyone has been so nice and understanding, so much that I could actually be myself and grow.

Tennis has really impacted me and I appreciate anyone who has been here and I will miss everyone so much.

Masters and the family.

 

Emily Fiedler:

I would like to thank all of the tennis girls from the past years and the girls now, everyone has always been so sweet and friendly.

I appreciate how lighthearted tennis is and how much fun I always have when playing.

Fiedler and the parentals.

 

Genna Wright:

Thank you mom and dad for constantly doing the most for me.

Thank you for showing and always being my biggest cheerleaders, for making sure I had enough food packed for away matches and picking up all the small pieces.

I could not have done it without you.

Wright and associates.

There was a little bit of everything.

Big routs, tense back-and-forth affairs, and a handful of debuts.

When it was all over Wednesday, the Coupeville High School girls tennis team walked away with a 5-0 win over visiting Friday Harbor, and at least a share of a league title.

CHS is 3-0 at the halfway point of this pandemic-shortened season, with all its matches coming against the Wolverines, who rep the only other school in the Northwest 2B/1B League to play tennis.

The two squads face off again March 22, when the Wolves travel to Friday Harbor.

A win there — and Coupeville is 15-0 in varsity matches this season — and you can officially add another league title banner to the collection in the CHS gym.

While Wednesday’s match finished decisively in favor of Coupeville, their arch-rivals put up a spirited fight.

The match of the day came at first singles, with Coupeville ace Abby Mulholland dueling with Friday Harbor’s talented top gun, Allie Fleming.

After a back-and-forth battle, Fleming claimed the first set 6-4, but couldn’t quite hold on to claim the full victory.

Mulholland, utilizing her height advantage, begin to spend more time at the net, dominating by spraying overhead winners to all the nooks and crannies of the court.

Fleming scrambled to the last point, showing a nice touch for keeping rallies going, but was eventually undone by Mulholland, who mixed in some sparkling drop shots as well as she claimed the final sets 6-2 and 6-0.

She wasn’t the only Wolf to bring their A-game, as Jaimee Masters and Emily Fiedler made for a formidable #1 doubles duo.

The two have different playing styles — Fiedler moves like a dancer on the court, while Masters unleashes blistering power off both her serves and her net game — but they mesh together fairly flawlessly.

Wednesday’s match also marked the high school tennis debuts of three younger Wolves, with Helen Strelow, Hayley Thomas, and Nozomi Hagihara taking the court for the first time this season.

All three showed potential, with Strelow a particular standout, teaming with Noelle Daigneault to win at the varsity level.

I’m a writer, not a photographer.

So, it’s a good thing I have a whole ton of people willing to snap pics for me.

Looking back, here’s my choice for 20 of my favorite photos from the 2019-2020 school year.

They’re in no particular order, and not every sport is represented, but these are the photos which caught my eye today, a mix of action and reaction.

And, most of all, emotion.

Emily Fiedler and her doubles partner, Eryn Wood, teamed up to notch their first win of the season Friday afternoon. (Photo by JohnsPhotos.net)

It was a very good day.

Less than 24 hours after being swept by South Whidbey, the Coupeville High School girls tennis team rebounded with a vengeance Friday afternoon.

With eight different Wolves winning for the first time this season, CHS swept host Friday Harbor 5-0 in varsity play, then fought to a 3-3 tie in JV action.

The varsity win lifts Coupeville to 1-4 on the season, and it bodes well for the Wolves starting a winning streak.

Friday Harbor travels to Whidbey Apr. 30 for a rematch, and, unless something radically changes, back-to-back team wins seems pretty likely.

Varsity singles players Genna Wright and Jillian Mayne, and first-year doubles duo Eryn Wood and Emily Fielder all tasted victory for the first time, as did JV doubles players Cassidy Holmes, Cecelia Camarena, Bruna Moratori, and Lola Jimenez.

 

Complete Friday results:

 

Varsity:

1st Singles — Genna Wright beat Lucy Urbach 6-1, 6-1

2nd Singles — Jillian Mayne beat Kai Di Bona 6-3, 6-4

1st Doubles — Tia Wurzrainer/Avalon Renninger beat Katy Kulseth/Tori Polda 6-4, 6-0

2nd Doubles — Eryn Wood/Emily Fiedler beat Joely Loucks/Ren Di Bona 6-0, 6-1

3rd Doubles — Jaimee Masters/Abby Mulholland beat Ayla Ridwan/Allie Fleming 6-0, 6-1

 

JV:

4th Doubles — Noelle Daigneault/Bruna Moratori lost 8-4

5th Doubles — Katelin McCormick/Daigneault won 4-2
