Tia Wurzrainer, three-sport star and ice cream scooper extraordinaire at Kapaws Iskreme, is your Homecoming Queen.

It all came down to taking a bite of a cupcake.

Each senior was handed a cupcake, with the winners revealed when their sugary treat turned out to be full of sprinkles.

Taking the crowns were Tia Wurzrainer and Gavin Knoblich, who both are three-sport athletes for the Wolves.

Back on the Island and back at work.

After spending a chunk of time bouncing around America in an RV, searching for inner truth and such, wanderin’ paparazzi John Fisken returned to Coupeville Saturday morning.

Calling him like a siren song was the 2019 edition of the annual Race the Reserve, a five-race event which raises money for the next graduating class from Coupeville High School.

Dealing with a sudden onslaught of liquid sunshine in the early morning hours, Fisken kept the camera hummin’, and the pics seen above are a taste of what he shot.

To marinate in everything he captured (and possibly purchase some glossies), pop over to:

Mission, accomplished.

The Coupeville High School football squad returned to the Island Sunday, after a very-successful appearance at the four-day, 10-team T90 Camp in Tenino.

Touchdown passes were tossed, fumbles were recovered, and lessons were learned under the day-time sun and night-time lights.

Fall practice begins a month from today on Aug. 21, with the season-opener against Port Townsend set for Sept. 6 in Coupeville.

Until then, some photos from camp to tide you over.


And a quick slice of Touchdown Time:

The season’s not complete without one final swing through the stat sheet.

The Coupeville High School baseball squad exited the playoffs Saturday, after pushing a pair of league champs hard.

With the losses to Northwest Conference kingpin Meridian and Emerald City League bigwig Overlake, the Wolves finished 7-14.

That was a big comeback, though, as Coupeville started the season 0-12.

A 4-3 win over arch-rival South Whidbey snapped the skid — and eventually denied the Falcons a chance to win the North Sound Conference title — and kicked off a seven-game winning streak.

CHS swept three-game sets from Sultan and Granite Falls to snare the final NSC playoff berth.

As they pack up the uniforms, bats, and balls until next spring, a look at final individual stats:
