Right back in stride.

Bouncing back from a rare loss, the Coupeville High School JV volleyball squad drilled visiting Darrington Thursday night.

Rolling to a 25-12, 25-19, 15-6 victory, the Wolves improve to 7-1 in Northwest 2B/1B League play, 11-2 overall.

Coupeville’s young guns have one match left on the schedule, and it’s a doozy, as they host conference heavyweight La Conner Tuesday, Oct. 25.

The Wolves prepped for their furious finale by methodically swatting Darrington.

CHS actually trailed in all three sets for a hot moment, then found a different gear and seized control for good.

They key to the opening set was the serving of Taylor Brotemarkle, as the Wolf sophomore ripped off an 11-point run at the line to break open a 4-4 tie.

Mixing nasty aces with slightly softer serves, which the Loggers still couldn’t get back over the net, she was a lethal markswoman with a license to kill.

One of the few times Darrington staged a brief bit of resistance during Brotemarkle’s run of terror, teammate Jada Heaton soared at the net to smash a spike winner which tore off the arm of a Logger defender.

Toss in some nice work from fab frosh Teagan Calkins, both at the service line and rampaging around, dispensing spikes, and the Wolves were clicking.

Things took a brief detour into more dangerous territory in the second set, as Darrington led for a considerable amount of time.

Coupeville got big plays from folks like Aby Wood, who pumped up the Wolf faithful with a thunderous block, but the visitors proved to be resilient.

The Loggers staked themselves to a 17-12 advantage, before Coupeville — having received some slightly stern words of wisdom from coach Ashley Menges — regained its mojo.

CHS fought back to knot things at 18-18, before Katie Marti put things on ice with an extended run at the service stripe.

The ever excitable one popped an ace off a rival’s shoulder, while also slamming a serve which tore off the last flake of paint on the back line as it skipped away.

While the third set was for practice, Marti and Issabel Johnson took things deadly serious, peppering the Loggers with a string of aces to close out the night.

The kids are all right, when it comes to operating cameras.

Under the direction of Coupeville High School yearbook advisor Jackie Saia, a platoon of click-happy students has been out and about snapping photos at sports events this fall.

The pics seen above and below capture some of the work of three of those young Wolves — Helen Strelow, Brenn Sugatan, and Delanie Lewis — as well as their mentor.

We look forward to seeing what else … develops … as they continue to hone their craft.

Katie Marti gets feisty. “I will drop three-balls on your head all night, son!” (Photos by JohnsPhotos.net)

Time to begin some spring cleaning.

Both Coupeville High School girls basketball teams have ended their seasons, but I still have a fair number of photos which haven’t run.

So, here’s nine of them, all shot by John Fisken.

To see more of his work, and possibly purchase some glossies for Grandma Gertie in Glendale Heights, pop over to:

Katie Marti scored 10 points Friday as Coupeville’s JV rolled to a road win. (Photos by JohnsPhotos.net)

Yodnum Nakakul achieved the American dream.

The always-upbeat foreign exchange student tossed in her first bucket of the season Friday, becoming the 15th player to score for the Coupeville High School JV girls basketball team.

Sparked by Nakakul’s basket — and a whole lot of other ones, as well — the Wolves romped to a 46-19 win at Friday Harbor.

The win lifts Coupeville to 3-3 in Northwest 2B/1B League play, 3-7 overall.

The Wolf JV closes its season next Thursday, Feb. 10 with another road trip, this one to La Conner.

Friday night Coupeville claimed the lead early and never let up.

Katie Marti dropped in a quick four points right out of the gate, and the Wolves ran away with a 9-2 lead after one quarter of play.

From there the Wolves stretched the margin out to 18-5 at the half, then 31-11 heading into the final frame.

Coupeville spread its offense out, led by Marti, who banged in a game-high 10 points.

Mia Farris and Desi Ramirez-Vasquez each added eight points, with Madison McMillan and Skylar Parker raining down five points apiece.

Kayla Arnold (4), Bryley Gilbert (2), Nakakul (2), and Brooklyn Thayer (2) rounded out the attack, with Edie Bittner and Reese Wilkinson also seeing floor time for the Wolves.

Marti made the nets jump, nailing a trio of three-point shots, while Parker also connected from long distance, dialing up a shot from the ferry parking lot.

Bryley Gilbert and associates wrap their season next week.
