The bats were boomin’, the catcher’s mitt was poppin’, and the Wolves couldn’t be stopped.

As the Coupeville High School varsity softball squad shredded visiting Darrington Wednesday, wanderin’ photo snapper John Fisken did what he does.

The pics above and below are courtesy him, but there’s more where that came from.

Playing from behind is tough.

The Coupeville High School JV girls basketball team got stronger as the game went on Thursday but couldn’t catch host La Conner.

Despite outscoring the Braves in the second half, the young Wolves ultimately fell 32-22 in their season finale.

The loss leaves Coupeville’s final record at 3-4 in Northwest 2B/1B League play, 3-8 overall.

The Wolves hit the floor ready to rumble, fighting for rebounds and loose balls, but an ice-cold shooting touch in the early going made things tough.

The ball skipped off the rim, rolled around and popped back out, and thoroughly failed to cooperate with Coupeville’s shooters as they slipped behind 7-0.

Kayla Arnold put a rebound back up and in to finally crack the scoreless run, but by then nearly six minutes had been erased from the clock.

Trailing 9-2 at the first break, the Wolves got buckets from Brooklyn Thayer and Madison McMillan in the second quarter, but the deficit widened to 19-6 by halftime.

The break seemed to help, however, as Coupeville battled La Conner even through a 9-9 third quarter, before claiming dominance in a game-closing 7-4 surge in the fourth.

Desi Ramirez-Vasquez had the hot hand in the second half, draining a pair of three-balls.

The first one was set up by a nice kick-out pass from Skylar Parker, while the second one was all Desi, all day.

The sophomore sparkplug stole the ball, beat a mad path down court, then suddenly slammed on the brakes and banked home a three-ball from somewhere deep in the parking lot, earning some oohs and ahs.

Desi Ramirez-Vasquez played strongly on both ends of the floor in Thursday’s finale.

Coupeville’s defense was key in the late game run, with Mia Farris and Jada Heaton both coming up with big plays to thwart the La Conner offense.

Ramirez-Vasquez led the Wolves with six points, while Thayer and McMillan backed her up with four apiece.

Katie Marti, Farris, Arnold, and Heaton all chipped in with a bucket, while Bryley Gilbert, Parker, and Reese Wilkinson also saw floor time.

One rough quarter killed their buzz.

Outscored 20-6 in the second quarter Tuesday, the Coupeville High School JV girls basketball team fell 48-41 to visiting La Conner.

The loss, coming in the team’s first game in 18 days, drops the young and scrappy Wolves to 1-2 in Northwest 2B/1B League play, 1-4 overall.

Coming off of an extended holiday break, Coupeville opened strongly against the Braves.

Freshman Madison McMillan knocked down six quick points in the opening quarter, and with three teammates each chipping in for a bucket apiece, the Wolves were up 12-7 at the first break.

Unfortunately, the Braves had an answer for Coupeville’s early dominance, and it came courtesy of the wham-bam combo of Kennedy Miller and Maeve McCormick.

The La Conner duo combined to score 17 points in the second frame, pushing their team out to a 27-18 lead at the half.

Coupeville came out on top in both the third and fourth quarters, to the tune of 11-10 and 12-11, winning three of four frames, but the Wolves couldn’t get all the way back.

While Miller (19) and McCormick (18) teamed up to score the majority of La Conner’s points, CHS spread its offense out among multiple players.

McMillan and Brooklyn Thayer both rattled the rim for a team-high 10 points, with Thayer singing the nets in all four quarters, while Gwen Gustafson banked in nine.

Lyla Stuurmans (4), Reese Wilkinson (4), and Kayla Arnold (4) also scored for the Wolves, with Bryley Gilbert, Jada Heaton, Skylar Parker, Desi Ramirez-Vasquez, and Katie Marti also seeing floor time.

It slipped away.

Unable to hold on to a lead late, the Coupeville High School JV girls basketball team fell just short Friday night at Mount Vernon Christian.

Up by six points headed into the fourth quarter, the young Wolves were outscored 14-2 in the final frame, setting the final deficit at 35-29.

The loss drops Coupeville to 1-1 in Northwest 2B/1B League play, 1-3 overall, heading into the holiday break.

MVC’s second squad is a perfect 4-0 after escaping from the Wolves.

With Saturday’s games at South Whidbey postponed, CHS doesn’t hit the floor again for a game until Jan. 4.

Friday, the Wolves were in control of the game for much of the night, jumping out to a 10-4 lead at the first break.

MVC closed the gap to 18-15 by halftime, but Coupeville asserted itself with a 9-6 run in the third quarter.

Unfortunately for the Wolves, that was where the buckets stopped dropping.

Meanwhile, the Hurricanes rode a big fourth-quarter performance from sophomore Kiera Link, who went off for 10 of her game-high 14 points in the final eight minutes.

Freshman Katie Marti paced Coupeville with 10 points, including a pair of three-balls, while Gwen Gustafson knocked down eight, and Madison McMillan rippled the nets for six.

Nezi Keiper (3) and Reese Wilkinson (2) rounded out the scoring, with Mia Farris, Jada Heaton, Brooklyn Thayer, Kayla Arnold, Skylar Parker, Lyla Stuurmans, and Bryley Gilbert earning floor time.
