Spikes scraping the oval. The thud of a discus hitting the turf. A click of the camera.

All sounds which indicate track and field has returned to claim center stage on the spring sports scene.

Thursday brought the season-opening Island Jamboree to Oak Harbor High School, and with it came intrepid photo whiz kid John Fisken.

The Wildcats and Falcons came to play, but the Wolves came to feast.

Making a huge statement right out of the gate, the smallest of Whidbey’s three high schools came out on top Thursday at the season-opening Island Jamboree track and field meet in Oak Harbor.

Coupeville, led by four double winners — Maya Toomey-Stout, Lindsey Roberts, Danny Conlisk, and Sean Toomey-Stout — won 11 of 26 events.

That gave one of the smallest 1A schools in the state more wins than both 3A Oak Harbor, which claimed 10 wins, and arch-rival South Whidbey, which snagged five.

Emma Smith, Mallory Kortuem, and Jean Lund-Olsen also won for the Wolves, while Coupeville added a pair of second-place finishes and seven third-place results to its haul.

Along with the wealth of top-three finishes, CHS also copped 20 PR’s.

The personal best throws and times were spread out across 14 athletes, with six different Wolves claiming a pair of PR’s in the first action of the season.

As he surveyed the scene, longtime Coupeville track coach Randy King was a content man.

“Not bad when you are going against Oak Harbor and South Whidbey!,” he said.

Drafting off of their strong opening day showing, the Wolves return home next Thursday, Mar. 21, when they host Granite Falls and South Whidbey.

The meet, set to kick-off at 4 PM, is the first of three regular-season home events for CHS track and field.

You know it’s a good day when you can make Randy King gush.

The longtime Coupeville High School track and field guru has been around the oval a few times, so not a lot surprises him.

But there he was Thursday, hale and hearty after recovering from surgery, and popping his buttons while watching his Wolves open the season at the Island Jamboree in Oak Harbor.

“Our work over the past two weeks is bearing fruit!,” King said. “My, oh my. Lots of good performances.

“Looking forward to next week and a full meet!”

Thursday presented the latest chapter in an annual event which brings all three Whidbey Island schools together, with 1A Coupeville and South Whidbey competing against 3A Oak Harbor.

Despite facing stiff competition, the Wolves acquitted themselves quite nicely, winning three events (and a fourth unofficially), claiming six second-place finishes and compiling 31 PR’s.

The stars of the day were Emma Smith (shot put), Allison Wenzel (discus) and Lauren Bayne (high jump), who all ended up on the highest step of the award stand.

Kylie Chernikoff, Hannah Davidson, Wenzel and Bayne also teamed up to win the only relay of the day, which was a special one for throwers.

While times weren’t recorded or posted for the event, the Wolves broke the tape first, and everyone saw it, so bow down to Cow Town.

Coupeville also got second-place finishes from Thane Peterson (discus), Danny Conlisk (800), Mallory Kortuem (400), Ryan Labrador (shot put), Lindsey Roberts (100 hurdles) and Jean Lund-Olsen (long jump).
