They’ll be first up.

If prep sports return from the pandemic on the current schedule, basketball will take the court beginning the last week of December, with games slated to start in Jan.

While no one knows where we’ll be in three months time, for now, Coupeville athletes have been allowed to start open gym-style practice sessions.

Stretching from Sept. 28 through November, it’s a repeat of the out-of-season coaching period the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association normally allows in June and July.

As Wolf girls hoops stars worked on their shots, with masks in place, wandering photo whiz kid John Fisken collected the snaps seen above.

On the mend.

One of Coupeville’s most-promising young athletes will kick off summer vacation in a boot.

Maddie Georges, who was third on the Wolf varsity squad in scoring during her freshman basketball season, broke her left ankle Saturday.

Mad Dog was a top JV volleyball player right out of the gate, and is the heir apparent to the soon-to-be-graduated Scout Smith at setter for the CHS varsity volleyball program.

Georges then made a huge breakthrough on the hardwood, jumping from being a vital part of an undefeated middle school hoops team in 8th grade to becoming a starter for the Wolf varsity midway through her freshman campaign.

Coupeville’s deadliest three-ball threat, she joined Smith in running the offense, while racking up 86 points.

That left her trailing just Smith (148) and junior Chelsea Prescott (110) on the season scoring chart.

When spring came, Georges also made the CHS varsity softball roster, only to see her season end before it began thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic shutting down Washington state schools.

Now, three months ahead of a new high school volleyball season — if prep sports return on time — Mad Dog is on the mend.

The good news is the injury seems fairly uncomplicated.

“A clean break,” said mom Suzan Georges. “So much for softball and on to healing for volleyball and basketball. Girl’s got some serious PT in her future.

“Huge thanks to all the ER doctors, nurses, and X-ray tech,” she added. “We were in and out in less then an hour and a half.”

This isn’t rocket science.

The most-sustained run of team success the Coupeville High School girls basketball program has enjoyed came in the 2000’s.

While the Wolves launched in 1974, and put together some very-strong runs in the mid and late ’90s, all three of the state tourney banners they own were captured between 2002-2005.

So, it’s no surprise that when you compile the 50 best single-season scoring totals put up by a Wolf girls hoops player, 21 of those campaigns came between 2001-2009.

Other than that, it’s fairly well-balanced, with 15 slots occupied by players from the ’90s, and seven performances apiece coming from the ’80s and the 2010’s.

There are two CHS girls who sit atop the pile, with Brianne King and Zenovia Barron both landing in the top 50 four times.

Ann Pettit, Makana Stone, Ashley Ellsworth-Bagby, and Megan Smith have three slots apiece, with Maureen Wetmore, Tina Lyness, Judy Marti, Lexie Black, Erica Lamb, Terry Perkins, and Brittany Black notching two appearances.

Overall, 29 players have combined to account for the top 50 individual seasons.

Now, there are a couple of small caveats, though the latter matters more than the former.

We have no scoring stats for that first modern-day team, the 1974-1975 squad.

Though, based on other early scoring totals, I’m 99.99992% sure no one from that season would make this list.

More troubling is the fact we’re missing 2-3 games each from three different seasons, so our totals for 2003-2004, 2005-2006, and 2006-2007 are not fully complete.

That affects four players.

Lexie Black, Vanessa Davis, and Brittany Black each have a season where they make the top 50, but could be higher on the chart with those missing games.

I’ve marked those campaigns with asterisks below.

The other person being possibly short-changed is Megan Smith, who I have with 161 points for her freshman season in 2006-2007 (minus two missing games), which is just 13 points off of cracking the top 50.

While she has the #10, #16, and #25 seasons, if we had complete numbers from 06-07, it’s very likely she joins King and Barron in the four-timers club.

With that being said, the 50 best CHS girls single-season scoring totals:

The same goes for Kyla Briscoe.

But not for Lauren Rose, as she’s joined by Lauren Escalle and Lauren Grove in Wolf hoops history.

Want to have a daughter grow up to score buckets for the Coupeville High School varsity basketball team?

Give her a first name starting with the letter M.

Want her to make history, though?

Give her a first name starting with the letter F, O, Q, U, or X.

After frittering away quarantine time by going through my scoring records, which cover the modern-day history of the Wolf girls program (1974-2020), those are some of the facts I’ve unearthed.

In the 46 varsity seasons played at CHS, there have been 229 girls who have tallied at least a single free throw for the Wolves, with those players bearing 183 different first names.

The most common of those monikers?

Sarah, repped by Powell, Mouw, Burgoyne, Wright, and Vass.

Unless we play fast and loose with Jennifer, which has four (Pettit, Bailey, Eelkema, and Meyer), but could technically add a fifth and sixth in Jen Canfield and Jennie Cross.

After that, there’s a seven-way tie with three each for Amanda, Courtney, Emily, Lauren, Lindsey, Nicole, and Tina.

M, with 26 girls, edges out K (25), J (24), and C (23) for the top spot, while no girl with a first name starting with the aforementioned F, O, Q, U, or X has ever scored in a CHS varsity uniform.

Yes, it’s true, the fairly rare Z edges out F and O, which I would have thought might have been fairly common.

Score the win for Zenovia Barron and Zarah Leaman.

7th grader Savina Wells leads all Wolves in scoring, averaging 14.6 points a game.

Halfway home.

The Coupeville Middle School girls basketball squads reached the midpoint of their season Wednesday, welcoming ginormous Lakewood to town.

While the Wolf players will eventually move up to join a 2B high school here in Cow Town, their rivals represent the farm team for a large 2A school.

But, while CMS pulls from a much-smaller student body, Coupeville’s hoops stars put up a good fight Wednesday, staying close in two of three contests.

How the day played out:

 

Level 1:

Coupeville won the second half, but couldn’t fully dig its way out of an early hole, falling 36-23.

The loss drops the Wolves to 2-3 on the season, headed into another home game next Monday, March 2 against Granite Falls.

Lakewood controlled the game in the early going, jumping out to a 10-3 lead after one quarter of play, then stretching the margin to 24-8 by the half.

The Wolves rallied after the break, however, putting together a strong third-quarter performance behind the play of Savina Wells.

With the 7th grader dropping in seven of her team-high 10 points across the seven-minute frame, CMS had a 9-6 run, and outscored Lakewood 15-13 in the second half.

Brionna Blouin and Lauren Marrs backed Wells up on the offensive end of the floor, racking up nine and four points, respectively.

Blouin netted her team’s lone three-ball, and was the only Wolf to score in three different quarters.

Lyla Stuurmans, Mia Farris, Allison Nastali, Desi Ramirez, and Madison McMillan also saw floor time for Coupeville’s top squad.

 

Level 2:

This one wasn’t pretty.

Failing to score until the 4th quarter, the Wolves absorbed a 47-3 loss, dropping their record to 1-3 on the season.

Down 20-0 at the first break and 35-0 at the half, CMS couldn’t get a shot to drop until Chloe Marzocca splashed home a fourth-quarter three-ball.

Her support crew included Issabel Johnson, Taylor Brotemarkle, Jada Heaton, Kayla Arnold, Katie Marti, Grey Peabody, Aby Wood, Reese Wilkinson, Kaitlyn Leavell, and Nastali.

 

Level 3:

The final game of the day was the closest, with Coupeville battling strongly in a 32-24 loss.

The defeat drops the young Wolves to 0-3 on the season.

A little bit of a slow start tripped up CMS, as the hosts fell behind 10-4 at the end of the first quarter, then played Lakewood virtually even the rest of the way.

The second, third, and fourth quarter all ended up with counts of 8-6, with Coupeville claiming the third frame behind four points each from Heaton and Johnson.

Heaton had the hot hand all afternoon, rattling home points in all four quarters as she tallied a team-high 10, while Johnson (6), Marzocca (4), Bryley Gilbert (2), and Devika Vogelsang-Puente (2) also banked in points.

With Marzocca and Vogelsang-Puente notching their first buckets Wednesday, 20 of Coupeville’s 27 players have scored this season.

Also seeing floor time against Lakewood were Alena Osborne, Shayla Town, Pamela Morrell, Kassidy Upchurch, Gabriella Becktell, and Aubrey Blitch.

 

Unofficial season scoring stats:

Savina Wells – 73
Lauren Marrs – 33
Brionna Blouin – 23
Jada Heaton – 17
Lyla Stuurmans – 15
Reese Wilkinson – 14
