Squeak go the shoes, click goes the camera.

Saturday night brought four hoops games to Coupeville and wandering photographer John Fisken was on hand to snap pics of all the action.

On field or off field, the action never stops.

Friday’s Coupeville High School Homecoming football game drew a sizable pack of fans and behind-the-scenes types out to Mickey Clark Field.

The pics seen above and below, sent our way by John Fisken, capture some of what was going on away from the whistle of the refs and the thunk of shoulder pads connecting with helmets.

The season is not done.

They’re just putting in a lot of work on the practice field.

The Coupeville High School softball squad last played May 3 and doesn’t get a chance to open the playoffs until May 21, thanks to convoluted reasoning by state officials.

While we wander in the desert without games, the photos above and below will at least give us a reminder of what softball players actually look like in action.

The Wolves run Whidbey.

Pounding out 17 hits Friday, the Coupeville High School varsity softball team drilled host Oak Harbor 13-7, completing a three-game sweep of their Island rivals this season.

Take two wins over 1A South Whidbey, toss in the destruction of the 3A Wildcats, and the 2B Wolves are sitting sweet at 12-1 on the season.

Coupeville, which is 6-1 against schools from bigger classifications, carries an 11-game winning streak into a home game Saturday against 2A Lakewood.

First pitch is 1 PM, with JV following varsity.

Friday’s tilt in the big city gave the Wolves a chance to show resiliency, as they had to battle back late to claim the victory.

After leading all afternoon, Coupeville gave up four runs in the bottom of the fifth inning and suddenly found itself down 5-4 with two frames left to play.

To which the Wolves said, “No worries,” and dropped the hammer.

CHS smacked five hits and eked out four walks in the top of the sixth, plating seven runs to turn a taut thriller into a runaway.

The base-knocks came from everywhere, with Gwen Gustafson leading off the inning with a double, then coming back around to smack a single later in the frame.

Gwen Gustafson, sliding in to second here, had a hot bat Friday.

Madison McMillan, Allie Lucero, and Teagan Calkins also collected hits in the inning, with Mia Farris, Melanie Navarro, Audrianna Shaw, and Calkins garnering free passes.

It was a big moment for Calkins, an 8th grader who collected her first varsity hit, and did it at a crucial moment.

While Oak Harbor got a single run back in both the sixth and seventh innings, Wolf hurler Izzy Wells closed out the game with a few snaps of her fastball-chucking wrist and the celebration was on.

The senior righty whiffed 11 ‘Cats across seven innings of work.

Coupeville opened the game by slapping a quick two runs on the board in the top of the first, before going three innings without a score.

Other than the third inning, the Wolves had runners aboard in every frame, but couldn’t break through again until the fifth, when they tapped home twice to stretch their lead to 4-1.


Friday stats:

Teagan Calkins — 1 single, 1 walk
Mia Farris — 1 single, 1 walk
Gwen Gustafson — 1 single, 1 double
Allie Lucero — 3 singles, 1 walk
Maya Lucero — 1 single
Madison McMillan — 4 singles
Melanie Navarro — 1 walk
Audrianna Shaw — 2 singles, 1 walk
Mckenna Somes — 1 single
Izzy Wells — 1 single, 1 double

It’s the crack of the bat, the click of the camera.

Diamond action officially began Friday, with Coupeville High School varsity baseball and softball teams taking part in a jamboree in Oak Harbor.

As both Wolf squads played a pair of three-inning games, wanderin’ photo clicker John Fisken prowled the area, cameras working overtime.

The pics above and below are courtesy him but are just the beginning of everything he shot.

To see more photos, and ponder purchasing some glossies for the cousins in Carlsbad, pop over to:








Allie (left) and Maya Lucero are smiling now, but they’ll terrorize rival teams on the diamond.
