Big hits, big pics.

The Coupeville High School football season has been filled with plenty of both.

The Wolves have roared out to a 5-1 record as they head to Leavenworth for a Friday Night Lights matchup with Cascade.

Things started strongly back in the waning moments of summer, when the CHS gridiron squad excelled at a jamboree in Sultan.

The photos above and below, which come to us courtesy Wolf Mom Nikki Breaux, are from that event.

The softball field is open for action.

Coupeville High School’s varsity diamond sluggers ambled up to Oak Harbor Friday, playing a pair of three-inning games in a season-opening jamboree.

The Wolves, repping a 2B-sized school, more than held their own against big-school rivals, beating 3A Oak Harbor 5-0, while falling 2-1 against 2A Anacortes.

Facing off with its next-door neighbors, which it will play for real later this season, Coupeville jumped all over the Wildcats.

Senior Izzy Wells prowled the pitcher’s circle, with her younger sister, freshman Savina, snagging the blazing fastballs.

Izzy pitched well and got to get a little work in before the season,” CHS coach Kevin McGranahan said. “Savina caught for her sister and did well in her high school debut.”

Maya Lucero and Taylor Brotemarkle had their bats booming, thumping a double and triple respectively.

“All in all a good way to break in a season,” McGranahan said.

Melanie Navarro crunched a triple against Anacortes, with the ball zinging to right, then skipping madly to freedom.

She came around to score Coupeville’s run on a fielder’s choice, and the Wolves had a chance to snag the win in the bottom of the third.

Instead, they stranded runners, leaving McGranahan and crew to wonder what might have happened in a full game.

“Anacortes has a REALLY good pitcher; way better than anything we will see in our league,” Coupeville’s coach said.

“We hung with them and battled a very good pitcher and almost got the best of her.”

Most of all, the jamboree gave the Wolves a chance to get the butterflies out and lock-in before regular season games begin Mar. 15.

“It was good practice for all of us and will pay off in the long run, getting to see how we look live,” McGranahan said.

“We have things to work on, but more positives than negatives,” he added. “Gonna be a great season.”

Ready to flex their muscles and capture some wins.

A little warmup before opening day.

That was what the Coupeville High School varsity baseball team was looking for Friday afternoon.

A day before kicking off the regular season with a home game against Mount Baker, the Wolves travelled to Oak Harbor for a multi-team jamboree.

While there CHS bounced their hosts 5-0 and were nipped 1-0 by South Whidbey in three-inning contests.

It was a strong start for a 2B Wolf program, with Oak Harbor and South Whidbey being 3A and 1A schools, respectively.

Making the jump from the hardwood, where he helped lead Coupeville to its first state tourney berth since 1988, junior Alex Murdy led the offensive charge.

Meanwhile 8th grader Chase Anderson made his high school diamond debut, tossing a scoreless inning on the mound.

With Mount Baker on the horizon — varsity plays at 1 PM Saturday, followed by a five-inning JV game — Coupeville coach Will Thayer was glad to see his players working out the kinks.

“We hit great against Oak Harbor, and struggled against slower pitching from South Whidbey,” he said.

Coupeville’s varsity, ready for the season.

But, if you’re not up for the drive, you can watch the Wolves in action from the comfort of your recliner.

The Coupeville High School girls basketball squads kicked off a new season Saturday with an appearance at a jamboree in Sedro-Woolley, and that got travelin’ photo man John Fisken to leave the Island as well.

The pics above are courtesy him, but are just the beginning of what he shot.
