Pete Milnes runs a tight (but fair) ship.

The dad of Coupeville High School athletic stars Mary and Hank is also a top-ranked soccer official prone to drawing the attention of photographers.

In the pics above and below, Milnes is working a pitch rumble at Oak Harbor High School, where he attracts the lens of snap-happy John Fisken.

“Don’t make me come out there and show you all how the game is supposed to be played, you punks…”

“I’m impressed, sir!”

“You should be!”

Rain drops fell and cameras clicked.

Ignoring the weather as best as possible, the Coupeville High School track and field team made a strong showing Wednesday at a three-team meet in Oak Harbor.

As the Wolves threw, ran, and jumped, photo whiz kid John Fisken snapped away, and the pics above and below are courtesy him.

To see everything he shot and ponder buying some glossy memories for the cousins in Corpus Christi, pop over to:

The runners returned.

Whidbey Island once again became a hub for people getting out and putting one foot in front of another Saturday, as the Ragnar Road Northwest Passage 2021 capped its two-day, one-night event.

The trek, featuring teams of runners, started near the Canadian border in Blaine and finished in the wilds of Langley.

The photos above and below are poached from Wolf mom Helene Lhamon, and feature a crew of Coupeville athletes who tore up the course.

They blazed their own trail.

Even with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Coupeville High School and Middle School cross country runners piled up the mileage this summer.

Under the watchful eye (from a distance) of CMS coach Elizabeth Bitting, the Wolves racked up 891.96 miles on local trails.

Along the way, there were a series of virtual summer fun runs, with the fleet-footed Ayden Wyman and Hank Milnes leading the way.

“Thank you to all who participated in any or all of the virtual races!,” Bitting said. “Some were easier than others, but I hope you all enjoyed navigating them first virtually, then on foot.

“Congratulations to Hank and Ayden! You ran the miles, conquered the races and came out as our top racers!!!

“The both of you will be receiving a tennis shoe keychain as a remembrance of the races you ran. Nice job!!!”

Bitting also doled out Kapaw’s Ice Cream gift certificates to the Wolf runners who racked up the most mileage, honoring the top three at both the middle school and high school levels.

High School:

Hank Milnes – 100.5 miles
Alex Wasik – 86.0

The official summer workout season is coming to a close for Coupeville cross country runners, but the Wolves continue to pile up the miles.

CMS coach Elizabeth Bitting, who is currently overseeing things for both high school and middle school harriers, has to step away, by WIAA rule, between August 17 and September 27.

With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the regular school cross country season has been moved from the fall to next March, as well.

None of that means the Wolves can’t keep up their summer activity on their own, however.

With Bitting still able to keep an eye on things, nine Coupeville runners teamed up to record 98.62 miles this past week, pushing the team summer total to 793.41 miles.

Included in that was the third of four virtual races, as the Wolves participated in the 2.89-mile “Don’t Get Lost in the Kettles Run.”

The official summer season wraps up this coming week with “The Pretty Pratt Run,” a 1.89-mile trek, which will take them up around the cemetery.

Runners have until next Saturday, Aug. 15 to record their best times and submit them to Bitting, who will release the results to the media the following day.

 

Results of the Kettles Run:

 

High School:

Hank Milnes (1st) 18:43
Reiley Araceley (2nd) 18:44

“Though the participants in the high school race were a smaller group this week what a great race I can envision in my mind!!!,” Bitting said.

“Running a race virtually is hard enough, but these runners had no idea how close they were to one another.

“Impressive race Hank and Reiley!!! Great job!!!! Woot! Woot!!”

 

Middle School:

Jack Porter (1st) 20:15
Nic Wasik (2nd) 21:47
Ayden Wyman (3rd) 23:53
Johnny Porter (4th) 24:30
Lillian Stanwood (5th) 25:18
