   You know it’s the end of the season when the weather is blue skies and sizzling temps.

“I’m sorry they won’t let you bring your seeing-eye dog on the field with you…”

“Zing, blue, zing!”

CHS assistant coaches CJ Smith (left) and Aaron Lucero ponder the possibilities.

   Nick Etzell (left), dodging a shoe lost by the runner, moves in for the kill on a run-down.

The season came to a close in a hail of photos.

Wanderin’ paparazzi John Fisken ended up way off Island Saturday and popped up in Tacoma to click some pics of the Coupeville High School baseball squad in its final playoff game.

The photos above are courtesy him.

And, when you land there, remember, every glossy you buy for grandma helps finance college scholarships for CHS student/athletes.

So, circle of life and all.

Ema Smith is no prairie newb. She comes ready for any and all weather.

One win away and Wolf baseball fans can already taste another league title.

   After opening her 8th grade track season with a bang this week, fast-rising supernova Ja’Kenya Hoskins swings by to check out her future classmates.

The weather was just so-so Friday, but that didn’t keep the bleachers from getting jammed.

Wolf fans ignored the cool, cloudy conditions and came out in force to watch the red-hot Coupeville softball and baseball teams anyway.

And they were rewarded, as both squads stormed to victories, raising their records to 10-4 (softball) and 12-4 (baseball).

As the games played out and the stands rocked, wanderin’ paparazzi John Fisken clicked away, and the pics above are courtesy him.

   The loudest fans in the park. “The cops are coming, have you heard? The cops are coming, she’s stealin’ third! WOO! WOO!”

   Rusty Bailey is thrilled to be freezing his tushie off sitting on the wind-swept prairie for his 23,782nd softball game as a dad.

John Fisken stayed busy this weekend.

Bouncing between gigs, the noted camera bug hit two Coupeville High School games Friday and another Saturday afternoon.

The photos above, which are a mix of on and off-field action from softball, baseball and soccer, are courtesy him.

   With no game in Oak Harbor, a few Wildcat fans made the trek to Cow Town to root for the Wolves.

   Kali Barrio considers bringing the heat. “Next guy who elbows my baby maybe doesn’t make it back to the bus…”

Catherine Lhamon is ready for her close-up, even if her companion is not.

   Justine McGranahan (middle) and Amy Briscoe chat, while CHS softball coach Kevin McGranahan contemplates how many pairs of long johns he’ll need to wear once “spring” sports start on the damp, wind-torn prairie.

   In a sea of phones, Menges (waving), Emma Mathusek (second from right) and Maya Toomey-Stout (far right) remain vigilent.

Photos falling like raindrops.

Thanks to the fastest portrait-clicker in the biz, the jacked-out-of-his-mind-on-Diet-Coke John Fisken, I have a slight surplus of pics at the moment.

The ones above, which capture fans at a recent Coupeville High School boys basketball game, are courtesy him.

   That moment when you’re hoping against hope the school band shocks everyone and breaks out some Guns N’ Roses.

Lauren Rose (and her sticker) make for a happy duo.

Went to a basketball game and a good book broke out.

Mesmerized by Ethan Spark’s version of Blue Steel.

Having learned from his elders, he then busted out … Baby Blue Steel.

Kimberly Bepler gets her hug on.

   Rose is joined in a farewell smile-off by fellow Wolf volleyball stars (l to r) Ashley Menges, Lucy Sandahl and Emma Smith.

Babies as far as the eye can see.

Lil’ guys and girls dominated the stands Thursday at Coupeville’s final boys basketball home game, and they anchor this batch of fan photos.

Just to keep things fair, we’ve sprinkled in a few people of other ages, but, yep, it’s pretty much all about the babies.
