Desi Ramirez looks for an opening in the defense.

Skylar Parker would like a teammate to get open, like now.

Reese Wilkinson (24), backed up by Brionna Blouin, looks to kick the ball back out.

Adrian Burrows hauls in a rebound.

Claire Mayne keeps the ball well away from any pesky defenders.

They are the future of the program.

The Coupeville Middle School 7th grade varsity and 8th grade JV went toe-to-toe with King’s Thursday, and wanderin’ photographer John Fisken was there to document things.

The last photo in the camera had barely cooled when he legged it out of the gym and hit the open road to Tacoma to cover the state wrestling championships.

Now that he’s back on Whidbey and rested up, it’s time to look at his snaps from last week’s hoops action.

To see everything he shot, pop over to:


And remember, a percentage of each purchase goes to fund scholarships for CHS senior student/athletes. So, circle of life and all.

The calm before the storm.

Falcon offers some advice. “Grip ’em and rip ’em.”

Turner and Lakeside (Nine Mile Falls) grappler Micah Tenny go to work.

“Hey, if we’re gonna dance, I want to lead!”

One wrestler, one photographer.

Coupeville High School senior Alex Turner, a grappler without a program, had a successful run this weekend at the state championships, and John Fisken bounced around the Tacoma Dome shadowing him.

The nimble Whidbey paparazzi was also at Mat Classic XXXI to shoot Oak Harbor’s batch of wrestlers, but they have their own media outlet to hype them up, so here the focus falls solely on the Lone Wolf.

Carolyn Lhamon denies a Langley shot.

Gwen Gustafson remains calm in the eye of the storm, waiting for the play to develop.

Wolf fans come to a consensus. “The snow is melting! The snow is melting!!”

If you can’t see Maddie Georges’ eyes, you have no way of knowing which way she’s about to pass.

Ema Smith lays down the law. “The clock starts when I say it starts, Skippy.”

Helene Lhamon implores the Wolves to make a defensive stop. Spoiler alert: they did.

Ryanne Knoblich fires a pass into the key during Coupeville’s come-from-behind win.

Finally a break in the snow and ice.

That gave the Coupeville Middle School girls basketball teams a chance to play Wednesday, while also allowing paparazzi John Fisken to check and see if his cameras had unfrozen.

They had, and the pics above, which capture action from the 8th grade varsity game, are courtesy him.

And, when you go, remember any purchases help fund scholarships for CHS senior student/athletes.

“Get that money!!” Lincoln Kelley badly wants you to collect that sweet, sweet cash. (Photo by JohnsPhotos.net)

Through three different leagues, John Fisken has been handing financial aid to hard-working Coupeville High School seniors.

The photo whiz kid is offering cash to two graduating student/athletes for a sixth year, so, if you qualify, don’t forget to apply by the April 8 cutoff.

Applications are available in the CHS counseling office.

Requirements for the scholarships:

*Must have participated in at least two sports for all four years of high school.

Cheer counts as a sport, but just one sport. Doing fall and winter cheer doesn’t give you two sports – you would need a second sport to go along with cheer.

*Must have a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA.

*Must NOT be getting any type of athletic scholarship from any college.

*Must submit a 500-word essay, “How Sports Made Me A Better Person.

And a final PS – transfer students who meet the basic requirements, but did not spend all four years at CHS, are eligible.

Morgan Stevens leads the charge up-court.

Hannah Davidson looks for a little help.

Flying past her defender, Anya Leavell heads in for a quick two.

Backed up by Audrianna Shaw, sophomore Ivy Leedy looks for an open teammate.

Fab frosh Kylie Van Velkinburgh hangs out with dad Dustin.

The power of the braid compels you. Lindsey Roberts easily out-leaps a rival player to win the opening tip.

Scout Smith makes it rain.

Call it spring cleaning or call it a photo dump.

Either way, I’m reaching into the pile of pics John Fisken shot this basketball season and shaking out ones I haven’t used.

A mix of varsity and JV action, they’ll remind you of a time when you could actually walk out your door and make it down to the CHS gym.

You know, back before we entered a new ice age and all life came to a screeching halt.
