They scored big buckets, and big bucks.

Coupeville High School basketball teams won three of four games Friday night during their first home games in two weeks.

Making the night even sweeter, the Wolves, and their fans, raised nearly $1,000 for cancer research.

Taking part in their annual Coaches vs. Cancer event, this year renamed Coupeville vs. Cancer, CHS brought in $955 thanks to fundraising efforts.

The money was donated to the V Foundation for Cancer Research, which was founded by legendary college basketball coach Jim Valvano.

Friday night will be an impactful one in the Coupeville High School gym.

Wolf basketball teams, playing at home for the first time in two weeks, host Friday Harbor in bouts which will have a big impact on potential playoff seeding for the varsity squads.

Things kick off with the girls’ varsity playing in the CHS gym, and the JV boys across the hallway in the middle school gym, with 4:00 tipoffs.

The boys’ varsity and girls JV teams inherit the floors at 5:30ish.

But the games are just a part of the events.

Youth cheerleaders perform at halftime of the varsity boys’ game, capping several weeks of preparation.

Throughout the afternoon and evening, the focus will be on the annual Coaches vs. Cancer fundraiser, renamed Coupeville vs. Cancer this year.

Raffle tickets ($1 or donation) will be sold, offering supporters a chance to win goodie baskets made by the CHS cheer team. There will be drawings at halftime of both varsity games.

T-shirts and silicone bracelets commemorating the night will be available for donation. Any extras after players and coaches receive theirs, will be offered for free.

There will also be a poster in the entranceway to the gym that fans can write on to honor those “that are fighting/have fought/have lost” the cancer battle, said CHS Athletic Director Willie Smith.

This year’s event is focusing on all forms of cancer, with pens representing all the cancer awareness ribbons available at the sign-in table.

All money raised will be donated to the V Foundation for Cancer Research, which was founded by legendary college basketball coach Jim Valvano.

Ask not for whom the Christmas tree loses its needles; it loses them for thee.

But, with one quick choice, you can get someone else to clean up the mess!

Troop 4058, Coupeville’s pack of scouts, will be out and about this coming weekend hauling away holiday pines and firs for their first fundraiser of the new year.

The event, set for Jan. 7-8, runs from 9 AM-noon each day, and covers Coupeville to Greenbank, though the scouts are willing to discuss exceptions.

Troop 4058, which is open to girls and boys, is chartered by the Coupeville Lions Club, and has been operating since 1977.

The scouts typically plan 12-15 outings a year, including Camporee and Summer Camp.

Flooding threatens store inventory at The Kingfisher Bookstore in Coupeville.

Buy a book online, help keep a local business afloat.

The Kingfisher Bookstore, which is located on the water side of Front Street in Coupeville, was one of the hardest hit by flooding Tuesday.

“It has been a hard, sad day,” store owners wrote on Facebook.

“A combination of tide, wind, rain and snowmelt led to six inches of seawater in our lower level this morning.”

Neighbors, friends, and others have rallied to help The Kingfisher, and other businesses affected by the onslaught of weather.

“We are so grateful to all the community members, some complete strangers, who came out to help with pumps in the morning, hauling truckloads of wet books out and setting up fans and heaters in the afternoon, and finally sandbags in the evening to try and keep the water out tomorrow morning,” the owners wrote.

“We can never thank you enough for your hard work, high spirits and hugs.”

One very easy, effective way to help The Kingfisher in its time of need is to place online orders, which can be done by jumping to the store website:

Get some Christmas shopping done and support Coupeville High School cheer — all from the comfort of your home.

With basketball (and flu) season underway, the Wolves are running a team fundraiser, selling Coupeville gear through Fan Cloth.

The campaign runs through next weekend.

With all the various seasonal maladies running wild, Wolf cheerleaders haven’t been able to be out and about in the community as much as they might like.

Coupeville cheer coaches Tara Crouch (left) and Jennifer Morrell lead the way.

“Our whole cheer team has pretty much been down with this crud that is going around and hasn’t been able to get out there and sell,” said CHS assistant cheer coach Tara Crouch.

“But there are some new items added, so if you’re looking for Wolf gear or just want to support our cheerleaders, we’d appreciate your order!”
