Some games the basket just plays unfair.

Saturday afternoon the rim and the net conspired against the Coupeville High School JV girls basketball squad, holding the Wolves to a season-low in points during a 28-9 loss to visiting Nooksack Valley.

The non-conference loss snaps a three-game winning streak for CHS, which heads into winter break sitting at 4-2 on the season.

The Wolves are off 16 days now, not returning to action until Jan. 7, when Cedar Park Christian comes to Whidbey.

The Coupeville varsity returns four days earlier, but their opponent, Chimacum, doesn’t have a JV squad this season.

Saturday’s tilt came against a strong foe which has held three of its six opponents to single-digit scoring.

The Nooksack JV limited Sedro-Woolley to just two points, and Sultan to four, so Coupeville’s nine point total, while low, is understandable.

Damage was done in the opening quarter, as the visiting Pioneers charged out to an 11-0 lead.

Holding the Wolves without a field goal in the first half, Nooksack stretched the margin to 16-2 at the half, with Coupeville’s scoring coming on free throws from freshmen Alita Blouin and Ryanne Knoblich.

CHS got off the schneid in the third thanks to field goals by Abby Mulholland and Knoblich and played Nooksack close to straight-up across the final two quarters.

Knoblich led the Wolves with three points, while Blouin, Mulholland, and Gwen Gustafson chipped in with two apiece.

Also seeing floor time for Megan Smith’s squad were Savana Allen, Natalie Castano, Samantha Streitler, Claire Mayne, Jessenia Camarena, Heidi Meyers, Morgan Stevens, and Ella Colwell.

They only got one chance to play, so they made dang sure to get the most out of it.

While some other Coupeville High School basketball teams are playing as many as three times this week, the Wolf JV girls got the short end of the stick.

Friday Harbor bailed on its game at the last second Wednesday, and The Bush School was upfront about only wanting to play a varsity game Saturday.

That left the Coupeville JV girls with one chance to impress, Friday night at home against Concrete, and they delivered.

And how.

Blasting the visiting Lions in every quarter, the Wolves romped to a 50-13 non-conference victory, lifting their record to a shiny 3-1 on the season.

CHS bolted out to a 13-2 lead after one quarter of hardwood action, sparked by the hot shooting of Alita Blouin, who popped for six quick points in the first frame.

From there, Megan Smith’s squad attacked from all angles, throwing up buckets at a dizzying pace.

From 13-2, Coupeville stretched the lead to 26-7 at the half, then 37-9 after three quarters.

The Wolves got big games from everyone on the roster, with eight different players scoring.

Gwen Gustafson, the only Wolf to score in every quarter, finished atop the stat sheet, popping the nets for a sweet 15 points, while Blouin was right behind her with 12.

Abby Mulholland (7), Ella Colwell (6), Jessenia Camarena (4), Natalie Castano (3), Savana Allen (2), and Ryanne Knoblich (1) also scored.

That pack got on-court help from Samantha Streitler, Claire Mayne, and Morgan Stevens, and off-court support from Lily Leedy and Heidi Meyers.

While the young Wolves will sit out Saturday’s action, they have a full week ahead, with games against Sultan, Port Townsend, and Nooksack Valley before heading into winter break.

They’re young, but dangerous.

The Coupeville High School C-Team volleyball squad continues to tear through opponents.

The Wolves, a scrappy band of freshmen coached by Krimson Rector, are 2-0 in match play, and can now add a strong showing at a tournament in Oak Harbor to their resume.

Playing in a seven-team field Saturday, Coupeville opened by winning five of six sets to capture 1st place in their pool.

The Wolves held off Kent-Meridian 26-24, 22-25, 25-20, then scorched Mount Vernon Christian 25-21, 25-19, 25-9.

“The girls got a lot of good play in,” Rector said.

A lunch break between pool play and entry into the gold bracket cooled the Wolves off a bit, and they fell in their rematch with Kent-Meridian, a large 4A school.

Coupeville walked away with 4th place in the tourney, ready to get back to pounding on opposing squads.

The Wolf C-Team plays twice this coming week, facing South Whidbey at home Tuesday, then traveling Thursday to Granite Falls.

No stats were kept for the Oak Harbor tournament.
