The Coupeville High School girls soccer squad made its 2019 debut Thursday at a four-team jamboree in Oak Harbor.

Joining the Wolves and the Wildcats were Anacortes and Meridian, and the second of those teams will be back on Whidbey shortly.

That’ll happen Saturday, and the trip will be a bit longer for Meridian, as the Trojans travel to Coupeville for the regular-season opener.

The non-conference tilt kicks off at 1 PM at Mickey Clark Field.

Until then, wanderin’ paparazzi John Fisken offers up a mix of pics from Thursday’s event, with some on the field, some off.

CHS coach Bob Martin gets all the good gossip from Jacobi Pilgrim (center) and Ryan Labrador.

Ja’Tarya Hoskins is gone, lil’ sis Ja’Kenya takes her place, and it’s the state-bound 4 x 200 squad.

Fellow Coupeville senior Emma Smith will compete in the shot put and discus when the Wolves trek to Cheney next week.

Sean Toomey-Stout scored a trip to state with strong work in the long jump.

Mallory Kortuem is state-bound in the 400, 4 x 1, and 4 x 2, plus she busted her own school record in the pole vault Saturday afternoon.

Well, that worked out just fine and dandy.

Capping the two-day bi-district meet with a bang Saturday, the Coupeville High School track and field team made off with five titles and three new school records.

Oh, and by the time things had wrapped up, CHS had qualified 10 athletes for next weekend’s state track championships, with six Wolves set to go in multiple events.

One of the smallest 1A schools in the state, Coupeville, which also hosted the track extravaganza, swung above its weight class.

While the Wolves didn’t have enough bodies to win a team title, they still claimed fourth overall in the boys race and fifth in the girls competition.

Meridian’s boys and the King’s girls earned team titles in the 16-team royal rumble.

For Coupeville, it was about picking your spots and then making an impact.

It’s hard to decide who had the best day among the Wolf athletes, as so many shone brightly under the spotlight.

Senior Danny Conlisk threw down the gauntlet Saturday, winning bi-district titles in the 100, 200, and 400.

But then there was Mallory Kortuem, who broke her own school record in the pole vault by four inches, won the 400, and qualified for state in two relay events.

And one of those relay units — the 4 x 200 with Lindsey Roberts, Ja’Kenya Hoskins, Kortuem, and Maya Toomey-Stout — shattered a school record which had stood since 2016.

The current group hit the tape in 1:46.13, edging out a 1:46.41 run by Sylvia Hurlburt, Lauren Grove, Makana Stone, and Roberts when she was a freshman.

Speaking of Toomey-Stout, the junior speed demon also lowered her school record in the 100, ran on both state-bound relay teams, and hit a supremely rare achievement.

Having already qualified for state in the long jump Thursday, “The Gazelle” equaled her freshman season by punching tickets to state in four different events.

In the entire history of CHS track, Toomey-Stout is the only Wolf girl to qualify for state in four events in the same year — and now she’s done it two of the last three years.

And let’s not forget senior Emma Smith, who won a title in the shot put Saturday, or Roberts, Ja’Kenya Hoskins, Jean Lund-Olsen, Ja’Tarya Hoskins, or Sean Toomey-Stout, who are all headed to state after their performances in the bi-district finale.

When Coupeville treks to Cheney for the state meet, which runs May 23-25, legendary track whisperer/ol’ ball coach Randy King will have plenty of company.

**UPDATE** — Sean Toomey-Stout finished 6th in the 100 Saturday, and the top four advance to state, so it appeared his run in the event was done.

But, athletes outside the top four can also advance if they achieve a state qualifying standard, which he did.

In the 100, the mark he had to beat was 11.56 seconds, and “The Torpedo” hit the line in 11.41.

Coupeville athletes and coaches celebrate a strong performance at the North Sound Conference Championships Thursday in Granite Falls. (Brian Vick photos)

Thane Peterson gets ready to launch his discus.

Freshman Alana Mihill had plenty to smile about after setting a PR in the 3200.

Wolf coaches dream about their beds after a long day.

Mallory Kortuem shattered her school record in the pole vault, raising her PR by three inches.

Sean Toomey-Stout, who won league titles in the long jump and 4 x 100 relay, gets some love.

They came, they saw, they more than held their own.

The Coupeville High School track and field squad won eight events, set 24 PR’s and established a new school record in the pole vault Thursday while competing in the inaugural North Sound Conference Championships.

Along the way, the Wolves claimed 2nd in the girls team standings and 3rd in the boys.

King’s topped the league’s six schools in the girls battle with 192 points, with Coupeville (102), South Whidbey (98), host Granite Falls (76), Cedar Park Christian (57), and Sultan (9) rounding out the field.

On the boys side, South Whidbey nipped King’s by the thinnest of margins, winning the team title 142.5-142.

Coupeville (109.5), CPC (69), Granite (41), and Sultan (20) filled out the remainder of the stat sheet.

The Wolves were led by senior Danny Conlisk, who captured league titles in the 200 and 400, while also running a leg on the winning 4 x 100 relay team.

He narrowly missed out on a fourth title when CHS teammate Jean Lund-Olsen nipped him by 0.01 in the 100.

Other Wolf league champs included Emma Smith (shot put), Maya Toomey-Stout (long jump), Koa Davison (high jump), and Sean Toomey-Stout (long jump).

While she narrowly missed out on a league title, junior pole vaulter Mallory Kortuem continued to lay waste to her own school record in the event.

The Wolf junior soared eight feet, six inches Thursday, topping her best previous effort by a solid three inches.

Next up for Coupeville is the district meet, which goes down May 9 and 11 at Lynden Christian.
