Wolves (l to r) Ashleigh Battaglia, Mica Shipley, and Emily Fiedler take to the skies.

Shipley, who’s been doing competition cheer since she was a little girl, is an old pro at this kind of thing.

They got a well-deserved curtain call.

Days after claiming 3rd place at state, while competing for the first time since 2011, the Coupeville High School cheer squad returned to its own gym Wednesday night.

With snow and ice throwing the district basketball playoffs into disarray, CHS unexpectedly found itself hosting a home game, which gave the Wolf cheerleaders a chance to work the sidelines one more time.

In a nice bit of coincidence, the visiting team was Sultan, which brought its own cheerleaders along.

The Turk cheer squad claimed the 1A state title in Coupeville’s class, Game Day Small, and the coaches from the two North Sound Conference schools became new best friends during the big meet.

Keeping that friendship going, the two cheer squads joined together at halftime Wednesday to pull off a joint performance.

A new season is upon us.

The arrival of winter sports becomes a reality with the team pics jumping out of the camera of wanderin’ paparazzi John Fisken.

From basketball to cheer and back to much more basketball, Coupeville is primed for the start of actual games, which start this coming Tuesday.

The Wolf girls are at home versus Meridian that night, followed by the CHS boys at home Wednesday against Oak Harbor.

The first week of action wraps Saturday with a home doubleheader against Bush.

Loud ‘n proud to the end.

Coupeville High School senior cheerleaders Julie Bucio, Moira Reed and Kaley Grigsby bowed out Thursday, but not before bringing their customary spirit to the proceedings.

The trio were honored before the Wolves clashed with Granite Falls, hailed for making it through their final season and for all they brought to the program.

While they might have been front and center at football games, none of the three could have accomplished what they did without the support of many, something for which they were all thankful.

“This has been an amazing experience and I’m glad I joined my freshman year and stuck with it till my senior year,” Bucio wrote in her farewell message.

“I’ve learned a lot throughout these past years,” she added. “I couldn’t have done it without those people who showed me their ways and certain people who took me under their wing since freshman year and helped me not get lost in high school.”

Grigsby and Reed offered similar sentiments, with the latter capturing what cheer has meant to all of them.

“I never joined the team for the popularity, the uniform or for the title of being a cheerleader,” Reed said. “I joined to have a family away from home.

“To my fellow cheerleaders, keep your head high and your chin up. Thanks for all the memories and making my senior year the best.”

So many portraits, so little time.

Back when fall sports was just kicking off, photo whiz kid John Fisken snapped head shots of almost everyone on a Wolf team.

As the season plays out, I’m sprinkling those portraits on top of stories, but, every once in awhile, it doesn’t hurt to toss out a chunk of them all at once.

By the time we wrap up fall and head inside for basketball, the goal is to have used every one of those shots.

With today’s batch, we’re seven closer.

Let them play and they will win.

The rainiest spring in recent memory has played havoc with the schedule for the Coupeville High School girls tennis team.

Maybe that’s changing, though, as Monday provided clear skies and not a single drop of liquid sunshine.

Taking advantage, the Wolf netters played a complete match for the first time in almost two weeks, whacking visiting Friday Harbor 7-0.

The victory, coming against a longtime rival, lifts Coupeville to 3-3 on the season.

The Wolves, who are hoping against hope to play four matches this week, host Chimacum Tuesday, then hit the road Wednesday (South Whidbey) and Thursday (Klahowya).

Their trip to Silverdale could be a two-for-one experience, as the plan is to finish a match that was suspended (by rain, what else) with the Wolves ahead 2-0, then play a regularly scheduled match.

Facing off with Friday Harbor, Coupeville ran away with the match, winning six of seven varsity tilts in straight sets.

With their win, first doubles duo Sage Renninger and Payton Aparicio improved to a flawless 5-0 as a unit this season.

Renninger is actually 6-0, having won a match with lil’ sis Avalon when her normal partner was on vacation.

Complete Monday results:


1st singlesValen Trujillo beat Morgan Timmons 6-0, 6-0

2nd singles Fanny Deprelle beat Alli Benz 6-0, 6-0
