Parting is such sweet sorrow.

After training and traveling with their compatriots from South Whidbey all season, Coupeville High School’s trio of cross country runners will split off and go their own way for the postseason.

That new route starts in Sequim Oct. 19, when the Wolves compete at the Olympic League Championships.

After that, if they qualify, districts and state beckon for Danny Conlisk, Henry Wynn and Sam Wynn.

But, before the split, Coupeville’s trio ran one more race alongside the Falcons Wednesday, competing at a Cascade Conference meet in Shoreline.

2A Cedarcrest, led by meet winner Grant Van Valkenburg, coasted in for the team victory, easily outdistancing South Whidbey and King’s.

Since Coupeville doesn’t have a full seven-man team, the Wolves had no chance to snag team honors, but Conlisk did finish 14th out of 57 runners, covering the 4,000 meter course in 13 minutes, 54.16 seconds.

Henry Wynn claimed 30th (15:16.86) while Sam Wynn hit the tape in 42nd (16:30.26).

With the postseason starting, South Whidbey hits the trail with other schools from the 1A/2A Cascade Conference, while the Wolves reunite with 1A Olympic League mates Port Townsend, Chimacum and Klahowya.

The league’s seven 2A schools, and wild card 1B Clallam Bay, will also compete at the OLC, which is set for The Cedars at Dungeness Golf Course.
