The Schaffeld sisters will shine elsewhere.

A family move will subtract two of Coupeville’s best young athletes, with Olivia and Amaya Schaffeld set to suit up in a new town this fall.

Olivia, who will be a junior, was a key player for a CHS varsity volleyball team which went 11-6 last season.

She earned Honorable Mention status when Northwest 2B/1B League coaches selected All-Conference teams, one of four Wolves honored.

Olivia racked up 69 kills, 37 digs, nine block assists, and 26 service aces during her first varsity season, finishing in a tie with Jill Prince for most block assists by a Wolf.

The elder Schaffeld was #4 on the team in kills and aces.

Her younger sister also earned a varsity letter, even before reaching high school.

Amaya was the lone 8th grader on the CHS varsity soccer squad, playing forward for the Wolf booters.

Lil’ sis wrapped things up this spring by competing in track and field, back at the middle school level.

During the season, Amaya ran the 100, did the high jump, and was part of a 4 x 100 relay team.

The Schaffeld sisters’ departure continues a recent trend of family moves trimming Coupeville rosters, with Mikey and Dylan Robinett also leaving town.

Coupeville’s loss is Nashville’s gain.

Three-sport star Mikey Robinett, one of the most promising young Wolf athletes, won’t be wearing a CHS uniform next school year.

Instead, he and his family will be in Tennessee after a family move in the next couple of weeks takes them to Music City.

Robinett, who just wrapped his sophomore year at CHS, plays football, basketball, and track and field.

On the gridiron he had a sizable impact on both sides of the ball.

While playing defense, Robinett delivered thunderous cracks, while on offense he showed great promise as a runner.

Basketball, where a large senior class is departing, is the one sport where he’s been a JV player.

Robinett crashed the boards with intensity last season and looked to be in the mix for making the jump to the top team.

The Wolf super sophomore earned his first trip to the track and field state championships this spring, where he was an alternate for the 4 x 100 relay squad.

During the season Robinett also competed in the 200, 3200, discus, and long jump.

He’s not the only active Wolf athlete in his family either, as younger brother Dylan is a cross country, basketball, and track athlete who just wrapped his 7th grade year.

They got the band back together.

Coupeville High School’s Class of 2020 boasts some very-talented female athletes, and the roster just got deeper (and taller).

Hannah Davidson, a 5-foot-11 sophomore who plays volleyball, basketball and softball, registered and began attending classes at CHS Monday morning.

She and her family, which includes two younger brothers, moved to California midway through her freshman basketball season.

With a second family move now bringing her back to Whidbey, Davidson is immediately eligible to play, as she already participated in the required number of practices while in California.

She began practicing with the Wolves Monday, and is expected to be in uniform Wednesday for a home non-conference game against Concrete.

Since she’ll have a chance to play more than 50% of the schedule (13 of 21 regular season games remain), Davidson will also be eligible for postseason play.

She gives a rebuilding CHS varsity girls hoops squad an injection of height (she edges 5’10 junior Lindsey Roberts as the tallest Wolf), and re-enters a system she already knows well.

After playing through middle school and into her freshman year with her current teammates, Davidson also attended basketball camp with them this past summer.

During her first go-around in Cow Town, Davidson was a tower of power in all three of her sports.

She was tabbed as the MVP of the Wolf JV volleyball team as a freshman, then dominated in the four games she played on the hardwood before the move to Cali.

The last time Davidson wore a Wolf uniform, she poured in 15 points, snatched 10 boards and rejected a pair of shots in a JV win over Klahowya.

While she hasn’t had a chance to play softball for CHS (yet), she was a key member of a Central Whidbey Little League juniors squad which rolled to a 13-3 record and a league title when she was an 8th grader.

The run to state was a last trip as a family.

Now, the off-season will strip away close to half of the Coupeville High School softball squad, as family moves will pluck three girls, including two starters, from the Wolf roster.

CHS coaches David and Amy King already knew they would lose seniors Haley Sherman, Madeline Roberts and Breeanna Messner to graduation.

Now you can add sophomore Emily Coulter and freshmen Emily Licence and Erin Josue to the list of those saying goodbye.

Coulter, who started most of the season at second base, is following her parents overseas, as mom Sheila has received a military transfer to Italy.

While she’s sad to leave her Wolf teammates behind, the always-plucky Coulter is looking forward to the radical life change coming her way.

“It’s been an experience I’ll never forget!,” she said. “And hey, how many kids are able to say that they’ve lived in Italy?”

Licence, the starting third baseman and team’s #2 pitcher, is moving back to California with her family, while super sub Josue is off to Seattle to live with her dad.

Miss Licence has promised to leave her cookie recipe behind, which makes the departures a bit less wrenching. But just a bit.

All three young women were good athletes and better people and will be missed.

Good luck, ladies. You may finish your high school careers, both athletic and academic, elsewhere, but you will always be a valued part of Wolf Nation.
