Graduation isn’t really over until the final photos drop.

Sure, the Coupeville High School Class of 2022 has their diplomas, Mickey Clark Field has emptied, and new destinations await the Wolves.

Doesn’t mean I can’t nab some more sweet, sweet page hits with a final (maybe) pictorial essay, compliments of Wolf Mom and school board director Morgan White.

It was a solid swan song.

Coupeville High School tennis players combined to net four wins Friday while playing in Tumwater, carrying the Wolves to a second place showing in the team standings at the District 1/4 tournament.

While the Wolves were not able to advance any of their racket wielders on to the state championships, every CHS netter in attendance garnered a win.

That’s especially nice, since five of the six Wolves who made the trip — Mary Milnes, Eryn Wood, Noelle Daigneault, Katelin McCormick, and Abby Mulholland — are seniors.

Helen Strelow, a junior who competed at state in cross country at the start of the school year, will be the lone returning player from this group.

The bi-district tourney featured two schools from each district, with Friday Harbor and Coupeville repping D-1, while Stevenson and Three Rivers Christian hailed from D-4.

Stevenson, which swept both the singles and doubles crowns, sends three players to state after going 10-2 on the day.

Coupeville was 4-4, winning all of its first-round tussles, while Friday Harbor and TRC finished 0-4.


Complete results:


Abby Mulholland:

Beat Pan (Three Rivers Christian) 6-1, 7-6(7-4)
Lost to S. Rudd (Stevenson) 6-2, 6-2


Helen Strelow:

Beat Dennis (Three Rivers Christian) 6-3, 6-1
Lost to P. Rudd (Stevenson) 5-7, 6-3, 6-3


Eryn Wood/Noelle Daigneault:

Beat Coffman/Stevens (Three Rivers Christian) 6-0, 6-3
Lost to Gunderson-Birkenfeld/Schultz (Stevenson) 6-3, 7-6(7-4)


Mary Milnes/Katelin McCormick:

Beat McMillan/Yi (Three Rivers Christian) 6-2, 6-0
Lost to I. Spencer/S. Spencer (Stevenson) 6-0, 6-0

Helen Strelow can return for another season of volleys and aces.

The court is finally open for business.

Mother Nature delayed the first Coupeville High School girls tennis match a couple of times, but the Wolves finally put racket to fuzzy yellow ball Thursday afternoon.

Wandering past the hardcourt during a visit to town, intrepid photo whiz kid John Fisken stopped to snap the pics seen above and below.

While he wasn’t able to stay for the entire match, he did pile up more photos, which you can see by popping over to:

The end comes for us all.

Saturday was the final home game for eight Coupeville High School soccer players, and the group was honored before their game with Sultan.

Seven Wolves were at Mickey Clark Field, while team captain Audrianna Shaw was out of town, but included in the farewell festivities.

The day was summed up by Katelin McCormick, who was short and sweet in her farewell message.

“I’m not one to be emotional, but, after being on this team for four years it’s hard to come to terms with the fact this is the end,” the Wolf defender wrote.

“That being said, I would like to thank everyone for supporting not only me, but the whole team.”

It was there, then it was gone.

Missing two of its top three scorers Tuesday, the Coupeville High School girls soccer team played visiting Friday Harbor virtually even.

But a late goal, coming off of a deflected shot, was a killer as the Wolves fell 2-1 in a game with major playoff implications.

The loss drops Coupeville to 2-4 in Northwest 2B/1B League play, 3-5 overall, leaving them two games back of Friday Harbor (4-2, 4-6-1), and well behind league leader Mount Vernon Christian (5-0, 9-1-1).

La Conner (0-5, 0-5), which the Wolves host Thursday, is alone in the cellar.

With only two of four NWL teams making it to the postseason, CHS desperately needed to avenge an earlier loss to Friday Harbor, and almost did.

With Audrianna Shaw and Sophie Martin sidelined, Coupeville was missing players who had accounted for seven of the team’s 12 goals this season.

The Wolves still had one rampaging ace controlling the middle of the field, however, as senior Eryn Wood erupted for her third goal of the season, and sixth over the past three seasons.

Taking a ball from freshman teammate Ayden Wyman, the well-seasoned Wood opened a can of whup-ass on Friday Harbor, drilling a shot from 20-30 yards out.

Leaving her foot with a crack which reverberated across Mickey Clark Field, the ball went high and hard and never stopped moving until it cleared the jumping goalie, slamming into the top of the net.

Coming 12 minutes into the second half, Wood’s score knotted the game at 1-1 and brought the CHS boys soccer team to its feet, their cheers raining down on their female counterpart.

Coupeville, which got solid work in goal from the tandem of Lily Leedy and Maylin Steele, held fast, only to see a slick, but somewhat lucky score break the tie.

The ball deflected off at least two people, ricocheting into the side pocket of the net, with the Wolf netminder blocked off from seeing where the shot was ultimately coming from.

That left the Wolves with a frantic 17 minutes left on the clock to force another tie, and they came hard, but literally fell about three inches too short.

CHS defensive whiz kid Nezi Keiper crashed a long kick into a thicket of players, and Wood punched the incoming ball with a deft flick of her foot.

But it wasn’t to be, as the Friday Harbor netminder made a sensational save while flat on the ground, somehow stopping the roll of the ball right as it teetered over the edge of breaking the goal-line.

Nezi Keiper was a beast on defense, as usual.

Coupeville, which gave up the game’s first score in the 17th minute of the first half, stayed in lock-down mode in the waning moments.

Keiper, Carolyn Lhamon, Mary Milnes, and Katelin McCormick bounced folks around, while Noelle Daigneault lowered her shoulder and drilled a wayward Wolverine or two.

But, on a night that was damp, a bit windy, and fairly chilly, there was no miracle at the end to save the Wolves. Just a hard-fought and tough loss.

Coupeville will try and carry forward the same effort as it plays its final two home games of the season.

La Conner comes to Whidbey Thursday, before Sultan visits Saturday for a non-conference tilt on Senior Night.

The Wolves will honor Milnes, Wood, McCormick, Leedy, Shaw, Martin, and Daigneault, before finishing the season with a pair of road contests.
