Two for the win.

Coupeville High School landed a pair of players on the All-League team when North Sound Conference girls soccer coaches tabulated their votes.

Senior midfielder Lindsey Roberts and junior defender Tia Wurzrainer both landed on the 1st team.

Those honors, and many more, were revealed Thursday night as the Wolf booters capped their season with an awards shindig.

In addition to her All-Conference hardware, Roberts, a four-year starter who banged home 17 career goals, was tabbed as the team’s Player of the Year.

CHS coach Kyle Nelson also honored freshmen Mary Milnes (Rookie of the Year) and Lily Leedy (Most Improved), along with senior Sarah Wright (Most Inspirational).

To everything there is a finish.

With the North Sound Conference down to just two teams still alive in the playoffs – King’s volleyball and soccer – this is our last league standings update.

For a few weeks.

Once high school basketball games kick off, we’ll be right back here every Sunday morning.

But, until then, this is it for fall.

If you deeply care how King’s does at the state tourney, where both of its squads are the defending 1A champs, you can easily find those results elsewhere next week.

This isn’t Knights Sports.

At least not until they come through with some of that sweet, sweet private school pay-off cash to keep me in the style I dream about…


Entering this past week, there were still multiple teams from other NSC schools alive, but, one by one, they all fell.

Coupeville and South Whidbey volleyball went down, Cedar Park Christian and South Whidbey soccer fell, and the league’s football squads got bushwhacked.

Big time.

Facing off the with always-tough Northwest Conference, the gridiron squads from the NSC were swept aside in four games.

Meridian drilled South Whidbey 59-8, Lynden Christian rapped King’s 42-14 and Mount Baker made it a two-fer.

The Mountainers destroyed Granite Falls 61-0 in the play-in game, then thumped NSC champ Cedar Park 49-10.

With those wins, the Northwest Conference accounts for three of the 16 football teams headed to the state playoffs, while the North Sound Conference comes up empty in year one.

At least on the gridiron, since, as I said up top, King’s can still repeat as state champs in two sports.

To which, as public school supporters, we say … yay???

After four years as a stellar starter, Lindsey Roberts has left the pitch.

The games are done, but the sorting of the photos continues.

Over the course of a season, John Fisken (and a lot of parents) gift me with numerous pics, and not all get used before the final whistle sounds.

Today, we’re catching up on Coupeville High School girls soccer glossies, dropping in seven portraits and an action shot which haven’t previously seen the light of day.

Sporting tie-dyed shirts for breast cancer awareness night, Wolf booters (l to r) Mallory Kortuem, Anna Dion and Avalon Renninger celebrate a goal.

Some things end, while others are just picking up steam.

Two Coupeville High School fall sports squads – girls soccer and boys tennis – brought their season to an end this past week.

Meanwhile, cross country, football and volleyball play on, with a mix of postseason and regular-season action left on the schedule.

The week ahead brings the district meet for the harriers Oct. 27, as they try and earn slots at the state cross country meet.

Meanwhile, football hosts Granite Falls Oct. 26.

The Wolves will celebrate departing players on Senior Night and still have a (faint) hope of punching their playoff ticket.

If they can’t get to the postseason, the Wolf gridiron squad is likely to get a cross-over game against another non-playoff team to wrap up the season during week #10.

Volleyball is flying high, and enters the final week of the regular season in second-place in the six-team North Sound Conference.

The Wolves have home games Oct. 23 against defending state champ King’s, and Oct. 25 against cellar dweller Sultan.

If everything goes perfectly, CHS could soar as high as sharing the league crown with King’s, but are guaranteed a slot in the double-elimination district tourney either way.

The final night was a stunner.

The North Sound Conference closed out its inaugural girls soccer season Wednesday, and upsets in two of three games threw the playoff picture out of whack.

South Whidbey shocked King’s 2-0 to give the defending 1A state champs their only league loss, while Sultan, which had been win-less in conference play for much of the year, beat Cedar Park Christian 1-0 for the Turks second win in a week.

All that, combined with Coupeville falling 5-1 at Granite Falls, flipped the league’s #2 and #3 playoff seeds and knocked the Wolves out of the #5 slot, ending their season without a postseason game.

King’s (9-1), South Whidbey (7-3), Granite Falls (7-3), CPC (4-6) and Sultan (2-8) advance to the modified double-elimination district playoffs against teams from the Northwest Conference, while Coupeville (1-9) stays home.

The Wolves, who finished 2-12-1 overall, with wins over Sultan and Port Townsend and a tie against Friday Harbor, entered the night holding a tiebreaker on Sultan for the final playoff berth.

While both teams had one win, coming against each other (CHS won 6-0 on their field, Sultan won 1-0 on theirs), the Wolves were a point up in the standings because of getting extra credit for a double-overtime loss to CPC.

That advantage vanished, however, when the Turks pulled out a nail-biter in the final regular season game.

Meanwhile, playing in Granite Falls, Coupeville got a first-half goal from junior Avalon Renninger, her third of the season, but it wasn’t enough to topple the rough ‘n tumble Tigers.

The loss turned out to be the final prep soccer game for four Wolf seniors, as Ema Smith, Maddy Hilkey, Lindsey Roberts and Sarah Wright depart.

The cupboard isn’t bare, however, as five of the six players who scored during the 2018 season can return next year, when it appears very likely Coupeville will drop from 1A to 2B.


Final scoring totals:

Genna Wright – 7
Lindsey Roberts – 4
Avalon Renninger – 3
Anna Dion – 2
Mallory Kortuem – 2
Tia Wurzrainer – 1
