The triple digit club grows.

A couple of games back we were sitting with two Coupeville High School players having cracked 100 points on the season.

Now, it’s five, with Scout Smith, Sage Downes, and Daniel Olson joining Hawthorne Wolfe and Mason Grove.

It’s hard to win when the other team refuses to miss a shot.

Give Cedar Park Christian credit, cause they shot the lights out Monday, rattling home buckets from every direction imaginable as they roared past the Coupeville High School varsity boys basketball squad.

By the time the Eagles boarded the bus for the trip back to Bothell, they had an 87-44 win and Wolf coach Brad Sherman had a case of angina.

“They’re one of the harder teams to game plan for,” he said with a small shake of his head as he perused the scorebook. “They just have so many weapons that can beat you.”

The Eagles finished the night with five players having reached double digits in scoring, led by a game-high 21 from Justin Trout.

There were three-balls, yes, with CPC outgunning Coupeville 7-4 from behind the arc, but the visitors also knocked down mid-range jumpers in great, greasy gobs, and were nearly flawless on quick cuts to the hoop.

With the loss, the Wolves fall to 1-3 in North Sound Conference play, 4-8 overall, and things don’t necessarily get any easier.

Coupeville travels to Shoreline Tuesday to face league leader King’s, then gets a rematch with Cedar Park Friday in Bothell.

The Wolves wrap a busy week Saturday with a home non-conference matchup with Port Townsend.

Monday’s tilt was essentially over before the first quarter ended, as Cedar Park came out blazing, rolling to a 19-2 lead.

At that point CHS had just a Hawthorne Wolfe bucket to claim as its own, and while the basket came courtesy a nice runner in the paint, it wasn’t enough to stem the tide.

Coupeville got a small run going right before the break, with Koa Davison hitting a hook shot off of an offensive board, before Xavier Murdy got three points the hard way. Still, it trailed 21-7 at the first break.

The second quarter was the sweet spot for the Wolves, however.

Or, at least, semi-sweet.

Shots started dropping, with Mason Grove heating up from the outside, and Wolfe crashing hard to the hoop, but any real hopes of a rally were blunted by Cedar Park matching CHS shot for shot, and then some.

Grove was on fire, nailing four three-balls as he rang up 14 points in the frame, while his younger running partner slapped in seven points, but Coupeville was still outscored 26-21 in the quarter.

The Wolves pulled within 13 late in the second quarter, but Cedar Park closed the half with a fast five points, then went wild to open the third, ringing up 16 straight to put things way out of reach.

Coupeville continued to scrap down the stretch, but as long as the Eagles couldn’t miss, Wolf fans had to look to small moments to get their pleasure.

One came in the fourth, when Jacobi Pilgrim banked home a bucket while being banged in the face, then added a free throw to complete a three-point play.

Grove finished with a team-high 16 points, while Wolfe singed the nets for 12.

Both CHS sharpshooters continue to charge up the school’s career scoring chart, with Wolfe bouncing from #86 all-time to a tie with Brad Brown and Charlie Tessaro for #78.

The sophomore guard has 328 career points, while Grove, a senior, joined the 300-point club Monday, and now sits at #90 with 307 points.

Murdy pumped in five points Monday to back up the dynamic duo, while Davison (4), Pilgrim (3), Gavin Knoblich (2), and Jered Brown (2) also scored.

Rounding out the active roster were Jean Lund-Olsen, Sean Toomey-Stout, and Daniel Olson, who all saw floor time.

Toomey-Stout was hobbled all night by refs with super-quick whistles, but when the guys in the stripes let him play, the ever-springy one was his usual ferocious self on the boards.

Who will be #3?

Two Coupeville High School basketball players have topped 100 points so far this season, and they both play for the varsity boys squad.

Sophomore Hawthorne Wolfe (158) and senior Mason Grove (108) are already in triple digits, but there’s a pack of Wolves coming up fast.

With just under half the regular season left to play, it’s a pretty sure bet others will crack the barrier.

For now, Daniel Olson (90), Scout Smith (84), Grady Rickner (83), and Sean Toomey-Stout (83) are the closest.

Olson technically has 92, having netted a basket for the varsity squad, while ringing up most of his points on the JV level.

As we wait for the 100-point duo to become a trio, a look at up-to-the-moment scoring stats for all five CHS hoops teams:

Rain the three-balls and bang down low.

Proving adept from both long range and in the pits Tuesday, the Coupeville High School varsity boys basketball team returned from a 16-day break in strong fashion.

Led by three guys who reached double digits in scoring, the Wolves romped to a 60-42 win at Granite Falls, and sit just a half-game out of first place in the North Sound Conference.

Coupeville, 1-0 in league play, 4-5 overall, sits right behind King’s (2-0, 6-7), which blasted South Whidbey 78-45 Tuesday.

Cedar Park Christian (2-1, 6-5), South Whidbey (1-1, 9-3), Granite Falls (1-2, 3-7), and Sultan (0-3, 1-9) round out the six-team league, with the cellar-dwelling Turks travelling Friday to Coupeville.

The Wolves showed little rust coming out of their long winter break, bolting out to a 22-9 lead after one quarter of play.

Five different CHS players dropped in points in the opening frame, with Hawthorne Wolfe (9) and Mason Grove (6) leading the way.

While the two teams played to 18-18 and 11-11 ties across the next two quarters, Coupeville never gave the lead back, and closed the game with a 9-4 mini-run in the fourth.

The win sent CHS coach Brad Sherman back to the bus with a spring in his step.

“I thought our guys stepped up and did their jobs tonight on both sides of the ball,” he said. “Defensively, a really strong team effort, and played very tough in the paint against a physical basketball team.”

Wolfe finished with a game-high 17 points, while Grove rattled the rims for 14 — both Coupeville gunners netted four three-balls apiece — and Sean Toomey-Stout knocked down 10.

Gavin Knoblich (9), Jacobi Pilgrim (8), and Xavier Murdy (2) also scored, with Murdy making his season debut after battling through an injury. Jered Brown and Ulrik Wells rounded out the active roster.

With his 17 points Tuesday, Wolfe reached a personal milestone, soaring past 300 career points.

The CHS sophomore sits with 302 and counting, and he passes Matt Frost (290), Brian Fakkema (290), Risen Johnson (291), John Beasley (293), Noel Criscuola (298), Blake Day (299), and Noah Roehl (301) to rise from #98 to #91 on the Coupeville boys hoops all-time scoring chart.

Grove became the second Wolf to top 100 points this season, having torched the nets for 103 through the trip to Granite.

The CHS senior has 263 points for his career, putting him #111 all-time for a program which is playing its 103rd season.

It’s a living, breathing thing.

Sort of.

Over the last couple of years, one of my obsessions has been trying to track down and document a definitive career scoring chart for both Coupeville High School basketball programs.

With the Wolf boys having started play way back in 1917, and the CHS girls joining them in 1974, there’s a lot of moving parts.

I’ve managed to pull together a list which I feel is fairly solid, while also (sort of, kind of) accepting there are some road blocks which may never be fully overcome.

We may never have scoring stats for that first Wolf girls team in 1974-1975, and old school stars Mike Criscuola, Jack Elzinga, and Tom Sahli may not get full credit for their complete stats.

Barring the creation of a time machine, or someone finding missing score books buried in an attic or barn, that’s just reality.

Frustrating as it is.

But, the positive side of this is I have documented the (mostly complete) scoring stats for 392 Wolf boys and 229 girls.

If I was normal, I’d wait until the end of the season, then take the 2019-2020 totals and add them in, updating the list at that point.

Instead, I tweak things after every game, so I can watch history unfold in real time, current players moving upwards, passing the stars of previous eras.

As we depart 2019, here’s all active Wolf players with varsity points to their credit.

That includes sophomores Ja’Kenya Hoskins and Xavier Murdy. Both are injured and yet to see action this season, but have multiple seasons ahead of them.
