On field or off field, the action never stops.

Friday’s Coupeville High School Homecoming football game drew a sizable pack of fans and behind-the-scenes types out to Mickey Clark Field.

The pics seen above and below, sent our way by John Fisken, capture some of what was going on away from the whistle of the refs and the thunk of shoulder pads connecting with helmets.

The U15 roster includes Taylor Brotemarkle (4), Katie Marti (back row, far left), and Madison McMillan, Lyla Stuurmans, and Jada Heaton (back row, third, fourth, fifth from left).

The pursuit of excellence never ends.

A batch of Coupeville spikers, hailing from both high school and middle school levels, are still out there chasing that volleyball dream.

The Wolves are playing for the Whidbey Volleyball Club, which brings together North, Central, and South Whidbey players, currently doing so with three teams.

The U17 squad, which won its pool at a tournament in Burlington Sunday, includes Coupeville stars Lucy Tenore, Taygin Jump, Ryanne Knoblich, Olivia Schaffeld, and Grey Peabody.

Gracing the U15 team are Jada Heaton, Mia Farris, Lyla Stuurmans, Madison McMillan, Katie Marti, and Taylor Brotemarkle.

And rounding out the Coupeville contingent are middle school spikers Ava Carpenter, Tenley Stuurmans, Jordaya Dowell, and Ava Ashby, who are on the U14 roster.

It was the calm before the storm.

With their own trip to the district tourney a day away, several Coupeville High School volleyball players made an appearance at Oak Harbor’s match Tuesday night.

While the Wildcats fell in straight sets to visiting Ferndale, the atmosphere and excitement should help prep the Wolves for their own adventure.

On to La Conner!

On to play Auburn Adventist Academy at 5 PM Wednesday, where a win sends CHS into a 7:30 tilt against the host Braves, with a trip to state at stake.

Alita Blouin and Co. are 9-2 in league play, with one match left on the schedule.

A nice bounce-back.

Coming off a rough start to the week, the Coupeville High School varsity volleyball squad drilled visiting Friday Harbor in a fairly quick, efficient manner Thursday night.

The 25-5, 25-11, 25-18 win in their home finale lifts the Wolves to 9-2 in Northwest 2B/1B League action, 9-5 overall.

After playing three matches in four days, CHS has Friday off, then travels to Langley Saturday for the Island Invitational.

The regular season finale is Oct. 28 at Mount Vernon Christian, with the district tournament set for Nov. 3 in La Conner.

Coupeville, as the #2 team out of District 1, faces Auburn Adventist Academy (currently 8-5), the #1 seed from District 2 at 5 PM that night.

The loser is done, while the winner returns to the floor at 7:30 to face two-time defending state champ La Conner (14-0) for the district crown.

Only one school advances to state from the District 1/2 tourney this season.

Any thoughts of playoffs were still far off Thursday, as Coupeville entered play coming off of back-to-back losses to South Whidbey and La Conner.

Things got really positive from the start in this one, however, as Wolf captain Maddie Georges lit a fire beneath her team.

Rifling off 13 straight points on her serve to open the match, she got some help as Lucy Tenore and Olivia Schaffeld staggered Friday Harbor with blasts at the net.

Even after Georges had been knocked off the service stripe — thanks to a lucky Wolverine lob which caught the back of the line on a rally — the visitors were never able to string together two points in the opening set.

Savina Wells and Schaffeld blistered the hands of Friday Harbor serve returners, while the eternally-springy Lyla Stuurmans dropped a devastating running tip, then danced away into her teammate’s arms.

The second set was a little more of a battle, as the Wolverines hung around for a bit, trailing just 11-8.

Enter Wells, flying in from the side, and exit the volleyball, which erupted from her fingers, slammed into the court for a winner, and skidded away screaming bloody murder.

That launched another Wolf run, with Georges and Wells combining to pick up 10 points on their serve as Coupeville pushed its advantage way out.

CHS brought a lot more power to the show than the visitors did, but the best play probably came from libero Alita Blouin, who flipped a winner back over her shoulder while on the run, looking away from the net.

With the match well in hand, Coupeville coach Cory Whitmore was able to get floor time for all 12 of his spikers, with his swing players picking up valuable varsity experience.

Madison McMillan, Grey Peabody, and Katie Marti, stars of tomorrow, all chipped in with hustle and alert reactions while in the game.

Meanwhile, Tenore delivered a dominant performance at the net, blasting a team-high nine kills, while fab frosh Stuurmans and Wells put the fear of God into anyone foolhardy enough to wander through their hitting zone.

Alita Blouin — 1 kill, 13 digs, 2 assists
