It’s not over till they publish the stats.

While the season ended Saturday for the Coupeville High School baseball team, the afterglow of a very-strong 15-6 run, which included a second Olympic League crown in three seasons, lingers.

Now, thanks to CHS coach Chris Smith and his dedicated book-keepers, you can marinate in the deep end of the stats pool.

Want to know Jake Hoagland’s on-base percentage or how many strikeouts Dane Lucero recorded while on the mound? Here you go.

And PS, it was .387 and 24, for those with limited time to poke around in the numbers.

Dance, magic, dance.

Moving away from the world of sports for a moment, we swing by Coupeville High School’s Prom, which went down Saturday night at the Oak Harbor Yacht Club.

Right where they want to be, in the driver’s seat.

Taking care of business Wednesday, the Coupeville High School baseball squad bushwhacked host Port Townsend 17-6, clinched a playoff berth and moved into sole possession of first place in the 1A Olympic League.

With the victory, their fourth straight and eighth in their last nine games, the Wolves soar to 5-1 in conference action, 11-4 overall.

That puts them a half game up on Chimacum (4-1, 6-7) which visits Whidbey Friday for the rubber match in a three-game season series.

The Cowboys won 5-4 in the rain at home two weeks ago, then the Wolves returned the favor 1-0 in the prairie sun Monday afternoon.

Port Townsend (1-4, 1-9) and defending league champ Klahowya (1-5, 2-12) bring up the rear, and neither team can catch Coupeville, guaranteeing the Wolves one of the league’s two playoff berths.

While the RedHawks have only won a single game in the past three years, they’ve pushed CHS this season.

The first time the teams faced, the Wolves eked out a 3-1 win, and Wednesday, Coupeville trailed 4-1 after two innings of play.

CHS had gone down one-two-three in the top of the first, then given up three runs in the bottom half of the inning thanks to a couple of errors and some timely PT base-knocks.

The Wolves got one run back in the second, with Julian Welling plunking a single and coming around to score on a ground-out by Dane Lucero, but the RedHawks immediately answered with a score of their own.

Instead of panicking, Coupeville went to work, ramming home three runs in the third to tie things up, before exploding for five in the fourth and eight in the fifth to wrap things.

The Wolves set the table in the third with a Matt Hilborn single, a Joey Lippo walk, then a double steal from the fleet-footed duo.

With runners in scoring position, Hunter Smith came up big, drilling a two-run single, before coming around to score on an RBI single off of Welling’s smoking-hot bat.

With the game knotted at four, Lucero, who whiffed four, bore down on the mound and held the RedHawks relatively in check the rest of the way.

Not content to sit on a narrow lead, the Wolves super-charged their bats heading into the fourth and promptly began crushing the snot out of the Port Townsend pitching.

Jake Hoagland, who obviously ate his Wheaties, bashed a pair of triples, one in the fourth, one in the fifth, with the first one narrowly missing being a round-tripper.

Coupeville actually had a trio of three-baggers on the day, as Hunter Smith jacked one as well.

With the ball flying off the bats of the Wolves, the RedHawks helped out a bit, juggling balls and letting the speedy Wolves turn singles into two or three bases at a time.

CHS finished with 13 hits, with five different hitters racking up at least two base-knocks apiece.

Hilborn (1B, 1B, 2B) led the attack, while Hoagland (two triples) and Smith (1B, 3B) went deep and Lippo and Welling each collected a pair of singles.

Jake Pease and Lucero rapped singles to round out the hit parade, while Lippo had the web gem o’ the day, spearing a liner at second while on a dead sprint.

They found a groove, and stayed in it all afternoon.

Poking 14 hits in just five innings Thursday, spread out among eight hitters, the Coupeville High School baseball team was unstoppable.

By the time the Wolf diamond men were back on the bus and headed to Arby’s for post-game roast beef, all host La Conner could do was turn off the scoreboard and try to ignore the 14-2 shellacking it had just endured.

The win, the fifth in the last six games for Coupeville, lifts it to 8-4 on the season.

After that non-conference tune-up, CHS gets right back at it Friday, hosting Klahowya (4 PM) in an Olympic League clash.

Win that one, and the Wolves would rise to 3-1 in conference action and stay a game back of Chimacum in the race for a league title.

Thursday, Coupeville came off the bus on fire and never let up.

The Wolves plated three in the first, using a Joey Lippo single and doubles from Dane Lucero and Jake Hoagland to ruffle the Braves hurler.

Hunter Smith (an RBI ground-out) and Julian Welling (a sac fly) knocked in the game’s first two runs, before Hoagland delivered the early KO with his two-bagger.

With Lucero cruising on the mound, the Wolves eventually stretched the lead all the way out to 10-0, with three more runners coming around in the second and four tapping home in the top of the third.

In the second, Lippo delivered a two-run double that sent Kyle Rockwell and Matt Hilborn scampering home, then the senior outfielder capped things by scoring on a La Conner error.

The Braves went to a new pitcher in the third, but the blood bath continued unabated.

Coupeville juiced the bags on a Hoagland walk and back-to-back singles from Jake Pease and Rockwell, then started unloading the bases quickly.

Nick Etzell ripped a two-run single, before the nuclear-hot Lippo delivered another RBI base-knock.

A final run scooted home on a ground-out off of Smith’s bat and the specter of the game being halted early thanks to the mercy rule reared its head for the first time.

Giving their fans a brief glimmer of hope, the Braves finally punched in a pair of runs in the bottom of the third, then held CHS scoreless for the first time in the top of the fourth.

The brief glimmer was firmly stamped out, however, as Coupeville rammed home another four runs in the fifth to effectively ice the game.

The Wolves did all their damage after starting off the inning with two outs and no one on base.

Lippo (yes, him again) singled, Smith was plunked by a wayward pitch, then Welling, the human RBI machine, brought both of his teammates home with a two-run single.

It didn’t stop there, with Lucero’s single driving home Welling and Hoagland’s second double of the afternoon plating pinch-runner Shane Losey.

Coupeville spread out its offense, with Lippo delivering a team-best four hits.

Hoagland (2B, 2B), Lucero (1B, 2B) and Rockwell (1B, 1B) chipped in with two base-knocks apiece, while Smith, Etzell, Welling and Pease all had a hit.

The only two Wolf hitters not to get a hit still reached base, as Hilborn and Jacob Zettle combined to walk three times.
