Coupeville High School track and field is off to state this weekend, but their middle school counterparts are back at home, hard at work.

The younger Wolves have their own season-ending, two-day royal rumble May 28 and 30 in Lakewood, when CMS battles for supremacy at the Cascade League Championships.

To get you ready, and put a face to some of the stars of the future, as they kick fanny and take names now, we give you a smorgasbord of photos from the most recent meet, courtesy Morgan White.

It’s a wrap.

Only have to play them once this season, so that’s nice.

Returning from a 12-day break the Coupeville Middle School boys basketball squads ran into a buzz-saw Tuesday while facing off with much-bigger Lakewood.

Three losses in as many games against a middle school which supports a large 2A high school was rough, but educational.


7th grade varsity:

There were two large bright spots in a 44-24 loss.

First, Logan Downes continued to scorch the net, popping for a team-high 14 points.

And secondly, and maybe more importantly, the Wolves showed grit, rebounding from a rough first half to dominate play in the third quarter.

While a 12-3 run in which four CMS players scored wasn’t enough to fully erase a 22-point deficit, it showed Coupeville won’t stop fighting.

Zane Oldenstadt added four points to back Downes, who is averaging 14.2 a night, while Ryan Blouin, Cole White and Nick Guay added a bucket apiece.

William Davidson, Mikey Robinett and Quinten Pilgrim also saw floor time for the Wolves, who sit at 2-3 at the halfway point of the season.


8th grade varsity:

A polished Lakewood squad rumbled to a one-sided 59-19 win, dropping Coupeville to 1-4 on the season.

Dominic Coffman rampaged for a team-high five points for the Wolves, while Mitchell Hall (4), Alex Wasik (3), Kevin Partida (3), Ty Hamilton (2) and Levi Pulliam (2) all put their names in the scoring column.

Jesse Wooten and Josh Upchurch rounded out the CMS players to hit the court.


7th grade JV:

A rough first quarter in which they were outscored 15-2 turned into an 18-5 loss for Coupeville in the two-quarter game.

Robinett paced the Wolves with three points, while Timothy Nitta knocked down a bucket in support.

Pilgrim, Andrew Williams, Chris Villarreal, Alex Clark and Justin Wilkinson rounded out the CMS roster on the afternoon.

It’s a two-man race right now.

With four games in the books, and six more to play, Logan Downes and Alex Murdy are out in front in the Coupeville Middle School boys basketball scoring race.

Downes, a 7th grader, tops all CMS varsity players in points (57) and scoring average (14.3), but Murdy, an 8th grader, can’t be counted out just yet.

The older Wolf is at a disadvantage, having missed a game, but he’s still singeing the nets for 11.7 points a game, and has the electric style needed to rack up big chunks of offense quickly.

For now, the duo, and their teammates, have to stay content dropping buckets during practice.

Coupeville is mid-way through an 11-day break between games.

The Wolves, who last played Nov. 15 at Granite Falls, don’t hit the court again until Nov. 27, when they host Lakewood.

When they do return to action, the CMS hoops squads close with six games in 17 days.


Varsity scoring through Nov. 20:


7th grade:

Logan Downes – 57
Cole White – 12
Ryan Blouin – 11
Zane Oldenstadt – 7
William Davidson – 5
Quinten Pilgrim – 3
Nick Guay – 2


8th grade:

Alex Murdy – 35
Ty Hamilton – 21
Dominic Coffman – 13
Mitchell Hall – 12
Kevin Partida – 5
Levi Pulliam – 3
Josh Upchurch – 2
Alex Wasik – 2

Logan Downes was so hot Thursday, he didn’t just singe the nets, he burned down an entire town.

Outscoring host Granite Falls by himself, the youngest of three brothers staked his claim to family athletic superiority and sparked the Coupeville Middle School 7th grade varsity boys basketball squad to a huge road win.

The victory was a bright spot for the Wolves, who lost two of three on the day.


7th grade varsity:

Pouring in points in every quarter, Downes rained down 19 in a 27-16 Wolf victory.

The win evens Coupeville’s record at 2-2 headed into an 11-day break.

None of the CMS hoops teams play again until Nov. 27, when they host Lakewood.

Wanting to go out on a high note, and possibly send a message to older brothers Hunter and Sage, Logan Downes went straight to scorch city.

He popped in four points apiece in each of the first two quarters, then scored all of Coupeville’s seven points in the third quarter.

Four free throws in the final frame capped Downes season-best performance, while lifting his season scoring average to 14.3 a night.

Cole White knocked down a three-ball en route to a four-point performance in support of Downes, while William Davidson and Quinten Pilgrim each banked home a bucket.

Ryan Blouin, Nick Guay and Mikey Robinett rounded out the roster for the Wolves, who outscored Granite in every quarter.

Up by just one at the first break, then four at the half, CMS put the game away with a 14-7 second-half surge.

The Wolves held Granite to just two field goals over the final three quarters of play.


8th grade varsity:

Playing without their leading scorer, the older Wolves fell 31-14.

The loss drops the 8th graders to 1-3 on the season.

CMS played without high-scoring Alex Murdy, but got a season-best performance from Mitchell Hall.

He went off for eight points and 10 rebounds, both career-highs, and drew praise from coach Dante Mitchell.

“He was killing it on the boards and on offense. He has a lot of heart!”

Ty Hamilton rattled the rims for six points to round out Coupeville’s offensive output.


7th grade JV:

The young guns came up empty in their first road game, falling 23-0 to the Tigers.

The loss drops the JV to 0-1-1 on the season.

Coupeville went just five deep in the two-quarter contest, with Justin Wilkinson, Andrew Williams, Alex Clark, Chris Villarreal and Timothy Nitta pulling iron man duty.
