Jaimee Masters and the Wolves are now 8-2 on the season.

Kylie Chernikoff had a message for her foes Tuesday night, and she delivered it loud ‘n proud.

“Get prepared, ladies, cause the butt-whuppins’ are a’coming!!”

Now, since Chernikoff is among the friendliest of all athletes, it’s possible she didn’t say those exact words out loud.

But let’s just imagine she was thinking them.

Cause she certainly played like it.

Delivering 15 kills, five services aces, and six digs, Chernikoff filled up a huge chunk of the score-book by herself, pacing the Coupeville High School JV volleyball squad to a straight-sets win in Bothell.

The 25-16, 25-22, 25-9 dismantling of host Cedar Park Christian lifts the Wolf young guns to a sterling 5-1 in North Sound Conference play, 8-2 overall.

With nine players seeing floor time for CHS, Wolf coach Chris Smith got a balanced, and very-effective attack.

The fab frosh were busy, as Maddie Georges doled out a team-high 18 assists, Alita Blouin went low to scrape five digs off the floor, and Taygin Jump mashed five kills, nailed five aces, and collected four digs.

Georges added four aces to the cause, while Abby Mulholland (one kill, one dig), Jill Prince (one kill), Jaimee Masters (two kills, one ace, one dig), Anya Leavell (one kill), and Ivy Leedy all brought intensity and hustle to their roles for the high-flying Wolves.

Coupeville returns to action Thursday, when it travels to Langley to face arch-rival South Whidbey.

The Wolves will be going for the season sweep of their next-door neighbors.

Ivy Leedy and Co. are now 7-2 on the season.

Quick turnaround, quicker win.

Less than 24 hours after dismantling Sultan at home, the Coupeville High School JV volleyball squad was back at it Thursday night, thrashing Port Townsend on the road.

The ferry ride probably took longer than the match, as the Wolves cruised in with a 25-5, 25-8, 25-8 win over the RedHawks.

With the non-conference victory, Coupeville’s young guns send their record soaring to a pretty dang good 7-2 on the season.

CHS coach Chris Smith kept his bench hoppin’ Thursday, rotating in 11 players, with all of them having an impact on play.

Freshman setter Maddie Georges kept the offense clicking, doling out 14 assists to go with seven service aces and two kills.

Also coming up big were Abby Mulholland and Taygin Jump, who each pounded six aces, while Kylie Chernikoff crushed her enemies, saw them driven before her, and enjoyed the lamentation of the women as she sprayed seven kills.

The rest of Coupeville’s stat line on the night:

Alita Blouin — one kill
Chernikoff — three aces, one dig
Jump — two kills
Ryanne Knoblich — two kills, one ace, one dig
Anya Leavell — three kills
Jaimee Masters — three aces, two digs
Heidi Meyers — four aces
Mulholland — two kills

Jill Prince and Ivy Leedy also saw floor time for Coupeville, which gets back to North Sound Conference action next week, traveling Tuesday to Cedar Park Christian and Thursday to South Whidbey.

Lily Leedy led them to the promised land.

The sophomore rattled the net for two goals Thursday, propelling the Coupeville High School JV girls soccer squad to a 5-2 win at Port Townsend.

The non-conference victory is the first W the Wolf booters, varsity or JV, have put up on the board this fall.

Technically, since the RedHawks loaned Coupeville some of their players to make for even sides, with one of the Port Townsend players netting a goal for her “new” team, the match is probably considered as a friendly.

To which I say, tough nuts, a win is a win and we’re calling it an official win.

It’s been a rough season for CHS soccer, at both levels, with the Wolf booters suffering more than their fair share of injuries and close losses.

They need this. They get this.

Leedy was backed up by teammates Samantha Streitler and Katelin McCormick, who each banged home a goal, and the RedHawk who will have to live down scoring against her own school.

Will the mystery Port Townsend player who tallied a goal be invited to the Coupeville banquet and installed as an honorary Wolf?

You never know, but my vote is a yes.

Pick your poison.

The Coupeville High School JV volleyball squad can kill you in numerous ways, from scorching service aces to blistering kills to lil’ tips.

And the Wolves brought everything in the tool box Wednesday, bedeviling Sultan on the way to a 25-10, 25-16, 25-19 victory on the floor of the CHS gym.

The win lifts Coupeville to 4-1 in North Sound Conference play, 6-2 overall.

After pushing powerhouse King’s all around the court for much of Monday’s razor-thin three-set loss, the Wolves came out ready to thump on Sultan.

It started with Abby Mulholland dancing at the net, blasting a pair of kills which tore off the back line, then veered to Kylie Chernikoff going nuclear on the ball, before Heidi Meyers started droppin’ service aces like a finely-tuned machine.

While there were three ties in the early going, the last one at 7-7, the Wolves started to pull ahead after Meyers made a four-point run on serve.

Another spike off of Mulholland’s fingers stretched the lead to 13-10, secured a side-out, and put the ball into the hands of Maddie Georges.

At which point Mad Dog got crazy.

The freshmen setter stayed at the service stripe for the remainder of the set, ripping off 12 straight points on serve.

Georges got a wee bit of help from Chernikoff, who tore a girl’s leg off with a laser of a spike, Taygin Jump, who mashed a winner while hanging in midair, and Ryanne Knoblich, who dropped in a bump winner while on the move.

But 92.3% of the time, it was Georges doing the damage during the 12-0 run, zipping aces to the right, to the left, then right down the middle of the floor.

The only thing which slowed her roll was the end of the set, which required a change of benches, and the introduction of new servers to the line.

Her replacements immediately picked up where Georges left off.

Jill Prince and Jaimee Masters served up a tasty buffet of aces, while Anya Leavell operated as an assassin, picking off rivals with a variety of spikes which sliced, diced and julienned anyone who got in their way.

While Sultan got closer as the match played out, the third set offered up a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde-style transformation.

Fresh from losing the first two sets, the Turks shocked the world by roaring out to an 8-0 lead, eventually gave it all back, then collapsed at the end.

Georges started the comeback, with a second strong run on serve, with Knoblich, Mulholland, and Gwen Gustafson bringing the pain at the net.

Back-to-back winners from Prince, on a spike, then a tip, knotted things at 15-15, before pushing the Wolves ahead for the first time in the final frame.

Sultan kept it close, only to see Knoblich deliver back-to-back aces to stretch the lead back out.

With the match roaring to the finish line, Coupeville crafted the best play of the entire match while up 23-18.

Wolf libero Alita Blouin, who spent the entire match sacrificing her body for the good of the team, sliding across the floor, collecting digs by scraping balls off the floor, sprinkled some magic on the floor.

Making a spectacular diving save on a ball which was all but dead, she flipped the ball skyward, setting up Mulholland, who came crashing through and blasted the ball for what seemed to be the decisive final word.

Except Gustafson went her one better on the very next, and very final, play, twirling into the air, freezing for a second, then unloading a match-ending kill which blew the doors off the gym.

Like I said, pick your poison, cause they’re all going to kill you.

One step backward, four steps forward.

After taking its only loss of the season to 2A Anacortes, the Coupeville High School JV volleyball squad has taken its game to a higher level.

The latest example? Thrashing host Orcas Island Saturday 25-10, 25-8, 25-20 in a non-conference bout.

The fourth-straight win for the Wolf young guns, it lifts them to a sparkling 5-1 on the season.

CHS coach Chris Smith mixed and matched lineups, playing 11 girls Saturday, and all came through with something positive for a streaking team.

Leading the way was freshman setter Maddie Georges, who doled out 17 assists, ripped nine service aces, and still found time to collect two kills and two digs.

Helping her along were big hitter Kylie Chernikoff, who piled up eight kills, and serve-masters Jaimee Masters (five aces) and Alita Blouin (four aces).

Also joining the kill parade were Jill Prince (3), Abby Mulholland (2), Taygin Jump (2), Ryanne Knoblich (1), and Anya Leavell (1).

Heidi Meyers and Jump tossed in two aces apiece, while Knoblich scraped the floor to pick up three digs, and Ivy Leedy chipped in with hustle plays.

The Wolf JV returns to action with a busy week ahead.

Coupeville hosts North Sound Conference rivals King’s Monday and Sultan Wednesday, then travels to Port Townsend Thursday for a non-league tilt.
