It was an unusual, but successful season.

With the pandemic altering things, the Coupeville Middle School track and field team competed against itself, and not other schools, this spring.

That four-meet intramural season ended Thursday, with Wolf coaches Elizabeth Bitting and Jon Gabelein hailing their young athletes for a job well done.

“Thank you for a very successful season,” Bitting said. “Without the support of all families we would have had a difficult time completing the season.

“THANK YOU to all who came out and volunteered on meet days.”

One of those volunteers, Coupeville High School cross country ace Helen Strelow, even stepped onto the oval Thursday, taking a leg on a relay team so her young compatriots could all compete.

“She graciously stepped in to help a relay team who was short one runner today,” Bitting said. “It was awesome to have the support of a high school runner and have EVERY athlete compete in the relay medley.”

While the meets had a different feel, with no rival teams present and not every event competed in, the experience was a hugely positive one.

“Yes, the season was a very different one compared to other seasons, but the athletes made it feel just like any other season,” Bitting said. “The support they gave to one another, the friendships that were made, the laughs had, the memories made and the competition they had with one another was priceless.

“We hope each of you continue to be active during the summer months and we hope to see you all back out on the track next season.”
