It was supposed to be his day off.

But the lure of a road game which became a home game for Coupeville High School girls soccer was too much, and photo clicker John Fisken ended up wandering down-Island after all.

The end comes for us all.

Saturday was the final home game for eight Coupeville High School soccer players, and the group was honored before their game with Sultan.

Seven Wolves were at Mickey Clark Field, while team captain Audrianna Shaw was out of town, but included in the farewell festivities.

The day was summed up by Katelin McCormick, who was short and sweet in her farewell message.

“I’m not one to be emotional, but, after being on this team for four years it’s hard to come to terms with the fact this is the end,” the Wolf defender wrote.

“That being said, I would like to thank everyone for supporting not only me, but the whole team.”

The second time was better than the first.

The Coupeville High School girls soccer team wasn’t able to upend powerhouse Mount Vernon Christian Thursday, but the scrappy Wolves fought until the end.

After absorbing a 7-0 loss at home to the Hurricanes, CHS sits at 2-3 in Northwest 2B/1B League action, 3-4 overall.

That leaves them in a tie with Friday Harbor (2-3, 2-7-1), which was shocked 3-0 Thursday by previously winless La Conner (1-4, 1-4).

MVC, a 1B school which has outscored its foes 82-4 this season, is 5-0 in league, 9-1-1 overall, with its only loss against 4A Mount Vernon.

The Hurricanes, with a roster full of travel ball vets, can strike early, late, and from just about every place on the field.

Thursday they broke through in the first two minutes of the game, then ran the score up to 4-0 by the halftime break.

From there MVC cruised in for the victory, though its goal tally was only half of what it scored the first time around.

Coupeville’s defense put up a spirited stand, with Nezi Keiper, Mary Milnes, and Co. showing no fear while facing off with the Hurricane sharpshooters.

Mary Milnes has been a standout on defense.

The Wolves can make a big move in the standings when they return to Mickey Clark Field Tuesday, Oct. 12 to host Friday Harbor in a battle for sole possession of second place.

That will be the second game in a run of four straight at home for Coupeville.

A new season dawns.

Playing hurry-up, then wait, the Coupeville High School girls soccer team kicked off the fall with an appearance Saturday at the Oak Harbor Jamboree.

Now, after playing two mini-games, the Wolves head back to practice, with their first regular-season game not until Sept. 16.

That match-up will be a home contest against Northwest 2B/1B League rival La Conner and will signal the real beginning of a 13-game season.

Saturday, Coupeville had a chance to face two opponents from larger schools, falling to 3A Oak Harbor and drawing with 1A Meridian.

“We started the first game with some first-game jitters, and a bit of a sleepy approach,” CHS coach Kyle Nelson said. “But we woke up for the second game.

“Really just a great opportunity to get out and play some soccer against some tough opponents in the early season.”


Mary Milnes fires off a cannon shot.

It’s a rumble at mid-field.

A new season, and the possibilities are endless.

Mary Milnes has another impressive achievement to add to her resume.

The Coupeville High School junior, already a top scholar and solid two-sport athlete (when COVID allows her to play) is the new Student Rep to the Coupeville School Board.

Her appointment was unanimously approved Monday, and she’ll start a year-long run in the position with the February meeting.

She replaces CHS senior Drake Borden, who served during a unique time, when the ongoing pandemic forced board meetings to go entirely on-line.

While he missed out on the in-person aspect of the school board experience, he was praised by Superintendent Steve King and board members for his input.

Milnes, who plays tennis and soccer for the Wolves, applied for the position because she “wants to represent the voice of the students.”

“That’s all the students – elementary, middle school, and high school,” she added.

She has two brothers also in Coupeville schools, and plans to speak to them, friends, and other students, to get feedback on any matters which come up in board meetings.

“I want to reach out to as many people as possible,” Milnes said.

With the pandemic shutting down a lot of interpersonal contact, she plans to stay in touch with people through email, while looking forward to when sports return and she can speak in person with her teammates.

Staying active and involved in the path the school district takes is important, Milnes said while fielding questions from board members.

“I thought it was a good opportunity to voice the student’s opinion,” she said. “I want to be involved in the school’s decisions.”
