Graduation is on its way, but first the biggest event of them all.

The day before Coupeville High School’s 12th graders walk to the podium in pursuit of their diplomas, the Class of 2019 took to the open roads.

Thursday brought the annual Senior Parade, as a stream of vehicles peeled out of the CHS parking lot and toured the town.

John Fisken showed up to snap the happenings, and the photos above are courtesy him.

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.

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.
