Title clinched and mom is out of the dugout and in pursuit of daughter Taylor.

“Come here, you!!”

“And you’re mine!”

When the chase is on, always bet on mom.


The pics above showcase Central Whidbey Little League softball coach Kim Brotemarkle celebrating with daughter Taylor after the Hammerheads won the District 11 title.

But first she had to catch the little rascal.

Allison Nastali dares the softball to avoid her bat.

A hard-hittin’, slick-fieldin’, high-hard-cheddar-tossin’, league-title-winnin’ band of softball sluggers.

They are the champions of the world.

Or of District 11, at the very least.

The Central Whidbey Little League Majors softball team sits at an impressive 17-2 on the season, with a district title in hand, and a ticket to the state tourney in its possession.

To top it all off, we present the pics above, shot by John Fisken.

Two sets of uniforms on the field is always better than one.

As Coupeville High School football plows through spring practices, the chance to scrimmage with other teams mixes things up a bit.

After playing at Mount Vernon earlier, the Wolves welcomed Concrete to Whidbey Thursday for a final inter-squad fling.

Along for the ride was photographer John Fisken, who snapped the pics seen above.

Coupeville grads Ema Smith and Alex Turner kill time while waiting to head off on the senior trip. (Photos by JohnsPhotos.net)

Coupeville parents say cheese for the camera.

Jaschon Baumann and Tamika Nastali wait while Madison Rixe ponders if she brought enough TNT to blow the bank vault.

Wolves (l to r) Katherine Morales, Gaby Halpin, and Tomi Herrera start a dance party.

Ramen has inspired more than one fight to the death.

Masters of disguise (and kung fu), it’s, clockwise from bottom left, Ema Smith, Peytin Vondrak, Emma Smith, and Ashley Menges.

Jennifer Menges, and her phone, enjoy some quiet time.

“How dare you touch my Ramen?!?!”

OK, I’m going to say it. These pictures weird me out just a bit.

Now, now, now, I am fully aware of what we’re supposedly observing.

It’s the time period between Coupeville’s graduation Friday night and when the Class of 2019 went on its senior trip.

The recently-liberated Wolves are killing time at a lock-in before their trip, and John Fisken swung by to snap some pics.

But hear me out, and also, realize I have seen thousands upon ten thousands of films, many of them downright atrocious.

Looking at these photos, all shot in front of the same virtually blank wall, with the camera never moving, and the same pair of abandoned garbage sacks (filled with what?!!?) lingering to the side, gives me the slight heebie-jeebies.

I’m just saying they have the feel of something where tourists are being held hostage in a place like Upper Bulgaria.

Then they get handed props by the evil mastermind and told to put on a show for the cameras if they ever want to see their families again.

I’ve seen that movie, or some variation of it, more than once … and it never ends well.


So, what I’m basically asking is, has anyone gotten any ransom notes from John Fisken yet?

Just sayin’…

It’s a wrap.

The Coupeville High School Class of 2019 has left the building and is on to new adventures.

But, before they could exit the gym on graduation night, photographer John Fisken was there to snap pics of both the diploma exchanges and the after party.

To see everything he shot, pop over to:


This time out, all photos are free to download.

But, if you want a high-grade, glossy version, you can purchase prints through Fisken as well.

And, if you do, a percentage of each sale will go to help kick off the fundraising drive for the scholarships he’ll give out next year to two graduating CHS student/athletes.
