Coupeville parents say cheese for the camera.

Jaschon Baumann and Tamika Nastali wait while Madison Rixe ponders if she brought enough TNT to blow the bank vault.

Wolves (l to r) Katherine Morales, Gaby Halpin, and Tomi Herrera start a dance party.

Ramen has inspired more than one fight to the death.

Masters of disguise (and kung fu), it’s, clockwise from bottom left, Ema Smith, Peytin Vondrak, Emma Smith, and Ashley Menges.

Jennifer Menges, and her phone, enjoy some quiet time.

“How dare you touch my Ramen?!?!”

OK, I’m going to say it. These pictures weird me out just a bit.

Now, now, now, I am fully aware of what we’re supposedly observing.

It’s the time period between Coupeville’s graduation Friday night and when the Class of 2019 went on its senior trip.

The recently-liberated Wolves are killing time at a lock-in before their trip, and John Fisken swung by to snap some pics.

But hear me out, and also, realize I have seen thousands upon ten thousands of films, many of them downright atrocious.

Looking at these photos, all shot in front of the same virtually blank wall, with the camera never moving, and the same pair of abandoned garbage sacks (filled with what?!!?) lingering to the side, gives me the slight heebie-jeebies.

I’m just saying they have the feel of something where tourists are being held hostage in a place like Upper Bulgaria.

Then they get handed props by the evil mastermind and told to put on a show for the cameras if they ever want to see their families again.

I’ve seen that movie, or some variation of it, more than once … and it never ends well.

Ever.

So, what I’m basically asking is, has anyone gotten any ransom notes from John Fisken yet?

Just sayin’…

Birthday buddies Taichen Rose (top) and Gaby Halpin. (John Fisken photos)

Birthday buddies Taichen Rose (top) and Gaby Halpin. (John Fisken photos)

They are two of the best and brightest we have.

Taichen Rose and Gaby Halpin, who share a birthday today, are part of a band of young women who are at the forefront of Wolf sports.

Strong, competitive yet compassionate, intelligent, ready to help lead the future, they are a dynamic duo.

Both go their own way in the sports world, with Taichen, a junior at Coupeville High School, running the soccer pitch.

Teaming up with older sister May, the younger Rose gives the Wolf booters big energy and supreme effort.

A scrappy defender who learned her skills under the leadership of Jenn Spark, Taichen will be counted on to play a big role for this year’s team as it tries to shut down rival snipers.

Is she up to the job? Absolutely.

Rose is a winner, on and off the field,  the kind of bright young woman who is well on her way to astonishing the world with all of her achievements.

Halpin is a year younger, yet has already had a huge impact on Coupeville as well.

You don’t end up a cheerleader unless you have at least a smidge of school spirit and an outgoing attitude.

Gaby takes that and pushes the dial to 11.

She burst on the high school scene last year and immediately claimed the stage as her own, an exuberant ball o’ fire who was as loud ‘n proud as any Wolf cheerleader, maybe ever.

Through football and basketball, Halpin provided vocal and mental support to her classmates, embracing her teammates and looking very much like the future cheer captain I am sure she is destined to be.

The birthday duo both provide snapshots of the best Wolf Nation has to offer.

Happy birthday to you both. May the best be yet to come.

It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that cheer.

As the high school hoops season winds down, the CHS cheer squad remains as loud ‘n proud as any in the land.

They also remain willing photo subjects, as wanderin’ photo man John Fisken found out Tuesday night.

The pics above are courtesy him, and thanks to the best cheer squad in the biz.

Mckenzie Meyer

   Mckenzie Meyer did double duty, alternating between cheer and band on this evening.

They’re the best at what they do.

For the high-energy Wolf cheer crew, that means being loud and proud and nailing every routine in their playbook.

They were back at it Friday night, during home girls’ basketball games, keeping the noise and energy bouncing off of the walls of the CHS gym.

In between kicks and cheers, travelin’ photo man John Fisken slid by and captured a few pics of Cheridan Eck’s squad in action.

Best way to kick off a new season?

Portrait night.

With basketball returning to the CHS gym Wednesday, the Wolf winter cheer squad made its debut on the sidelines as well, and travelin’ photo man John Fisken was there to document the proceedings.

By the time he was done clicking, we had these extra-glossy, suitable-for-framing photos of the 10 young women who are repping the red and black this season.

To all the mamas and grandmas out there, you’re welcome.
