Junior cheer is back.

Coupeville High School is reviving its program to introduce elementary school students to the world of vocal gridiron support.

Wolves in grades K-5 are eligible, with registration set to run Aug. 20-Sept. 15.

All proceeds go to benefit the CHS cheer program.

Parents and guardians can register their young cheerleaders by going to https://coupevillesoc.com/.

Cost is $65 per student, with each young athlete receiving a sweatshirt and pom poms to keep.

Practices will be held Thursdays at the Coupeville Elementary School multipurpose room on Sep. 15, 22, and 29, as well as Oct. 6.

The young cheerleaders will join their CHS counterparts for a halftime performance Friday, Oct. 7 during a home game against Bellingham.

Hail the present. Honor the past. Build for the future.

The only Coupeville High School sports program to own a team state title is doing all of that, with a little help from its alumni.

Wolf cheerleaders have a strong support crew, and their accomplishments are being documented through a multi-media approach.

The Spirit of Cheer Booster Club has a web site, as well as pages on Instagram and Facebook, where photos are being posted and memories immortalized.

The modern-day Wolf cheer crew works the festival circuit.

The mission?

“Coupeville cheer alumni leveraging their passion and experience to champion the next generation of cheerleaders.”

In that vein, the site offers the promise of junior cheer being offered this fall, when CHS cheer returns to the sidelines to kick off a new school year.

Jennifer Morrell

Coupeville High School is staying in-house with the selection of its next cheer coach.

Jennifer Morrell, who works as a nurse for the school and is a former Wolf cheerleader, has been recommended for the position, CHS Principal Geoff Kappes confirmed.

Her hiring will be official when the school board approves it Aug. 23 at their monthly meeting.

Morrell, who patrolled the sidelines for Coupeville’s cheer squad in the mid-’90s, replaces BreAnna Boon, who stepped away to focus more time on an off-Island job and her children’s ever-expanding athletic endeavors.

Former CHS cheer guru Sylvia Arnold is through the roof over seeing one of her former athletes follow in her footsteps.

Jen was an amazing cheerleader for Coupeville High School back in my early coaching days! Back in 1995!!,” Arnold said.

“She is going to be exceptional as a coach … one who will bring the spirit back into our exhausted sports programs!

“She definitely understands what it means to be a part of Coupeville, a caregiver of lives, and a conduit of joy in the midst of uncertainty!!”
