It’s the look of love.

Coupeville High School Class of 2022 grads celebrated Saturday with family and friends, then put all the photos on Facebook where I could easily poach them.

That makes them the real MVP’s, at least in my eyes.

Mckenna Somes is a ninja.

Cause when I look at the series of photos below, all I can think is one thing — she’s using her bottle of Gatorade/juice/energy drink to take out a killer wasp trying to attack teammate Mia Farris as she collects flowers.

If it’s not true, I don’t need to know.

Let the legend of Mckenna, Ninja Warrior live.

They went out with a bang.

Coupeville High School’s senior softball players led the way Friday as the Wolves drilled Orcas Island, capturing a pair of wins in their final games on their home field.

Izzy Wells, Mckenna Somes, Violette Huegerich, and Audrianna Shaw are part of a CHS diamond squad currently flying high at 15-2, so there’s still more games to play.

But barring a sudden quirk in the schedule, the rest of the way will play out on the road for the Wolves.

So that meant Friday’s games included a Senior Night celebration, with chunks of it captured in the pics seen above and below.

They are vengeance unleashed.

Even when they try and pull back the reigns a bit and try not to unnecessarily embarrass opponents, it’s hard for the Coupeville High School softball team to be anything less than dominant.

Case in point, Friday’s doubleheader at La Conner, where the Wolves, playing everyone in a uniform — varsity and JV — still romped to 23-0 and 23-1 wins over the outmatched Braves.

The sweep gives Coupeville nine straight wins and lifts it to 5-0 in Northwest 2B/1B League play, 10-1 overall.

As they roll towards a second consecutive undefeated NWL championship, the Wolves get a chance to punch upwards all of next week.

Coupeville faces 1A Meridian, 3A Oak Harbor, and 2A Lakewood in non-conference tilts, a challenge Kevin McGranahan’s squad craves.

Coupeville is 4-1 this season against schools from larger classifications, with its only loss coming to 1A royalty Lynden Christian.


Game #1:

Mixing varsity and JV players, Coupeville pounded out a season-high 29 hits a day after dinging Sultan for 27 base-knocks.

With senior pitching ace Izzy Wells surrendering just a pair of singles, and whiffing 12 Braves, the Wolves were just as brutally efficient on the other side of the ball.

The game might have seemed close for a hot moment, as Coupeville led just 1-0 exiting the first inning, but then its big-game sluggers unleashed their bats.

Six runs in the top of the second stretched the lead out, with four more coming in the third and another three in the fourth inning.

The Wolves wrapped things up by pushing nine more tallies across the plate in the fifth, then shuffled their roster dramatically for the nightcap.

Mckenna Somes had a five-hit performance in game one of a doubleheader.


Game #2:

This time out, twin hurlers Allie and Maya Lucero combined to chuck a four-inning no-hitter, with nine of 12 outs coming via punch-outs.

With many of their regular starters sitting the finale out, the Wolves still cracked 13 hits, giving them a 42-2 advantage on the afternoon.

Freshman Savina Wells, who rested in the opener, returned to the starting lineup and promptly walloped a home run, while CHS also piled up a staggering 18 walks.

Wolf 8th grader Teagan Calkins earned four of those free passes, with Alondra Cruz and Madison McMillan eking out three walks apiece.

Up 7-1 after one inning, Coupeville dropped nine runs on the board in the second, then coasted in with four and three-run rallies in the remaining frames.


Friday stats:

Edie Bittner — 2 walks
Taylor Brotemarkle — 1 single, 1 double, 2 walks
Teagan Calkins — 4 walks
Camryn Clark — 1 walk
Alondra Cruz — 3 walks

Wolf coach Aaron Lucero gazes in wonder as the Wolves decimate all challengers.

The weather was nice, the offense nicer.

Playing under actual sunshine Tuesday, the Coupeville High School varsity softball squad racked up 14 hits and 13 walks, rolling to a 17-0 win over visiting La Conner.

The victory, coming in the Northwest 2B/1B League opener for the Wolves, lifts them to 1-0 in conference play, 2-1 overall.

Tuesday was a March rarity on the prairie.

No rain. Mild temps. Not even a lil’ gust of wind.

A perfect setting for a full-on beatdown, as Coupeville decimated Brave pitching, ringing up those 17 runs while only coming to the plate four times.

And it could have been much, much worse, but the Wolves danced a fine line between being dominant and not wanting to unnecessarily embarrass their foes.

CHS gave away outs by having runners leave the base early, and shuffled its lineup around, giving all 14 varsity players a chance to shine.

Mission accomplished.

Coupeville pitchers Izzy Wells, Allie Lucero, and Maya Lucero combined to chuck a five-inning no-hitter, with La Conner’s lone runner getting aboard thanks to a two-out walk in the top of the first inning.

Wells struck out nine in three innings of work, with Allie (2) and Maya (1) also recording K’s in their inning of work.

At the plate, the Wolves mashed all day long, with 10 different hitters recording at least one base-knock.

Senior centerfielder Audrianna Shaw provided an early highlight when she led off the bottom of the first with a resounding triple to left field, and the rout was on.

Coupeville put up six runs in the opening frame, with the first half of the tally coming around on a pair of errors and a bases-loaded walk to Sofia Peters.

After that, RBI singles from Melanie Navarro, Violette Huegerich, and Shaw plated another three runs.

The Wolves settled for just a lone run in the second, with Izzy Wells golfing an RBI single to left field after Lily Leedy singled and Madison McMillan walked.

CHS closed things out by tacking on five more runs in both the third and fourth.

Mckenna Somes, who enjoyed a stellar day both hitting at the plate and working behind it as a catcher, delivered a two-run single in the third, while Peters crunched an RBI single to center.

Some of the day’s biggest blows were saved for Coupeville’s final at-bats, with McMillan and Allie Lucero popping triples to deep, dark corners of the playing field.

McMillan’s laser, which skidded off her bat and landed in left field, brought a runner around, while Lucero cleared the bases with a three-run three-bagger to right-center.

Coupeville returns to action this Saturday, Mar. 26, when it travels to South Whidbey for a non-conference bout.

After that, the Wolves play four straight against league foes.


Tuesday stats:

Taylor Brotemarkle — 2 walks
Mia Farris — Walk
Gwen Gustafson — Single, walk, RBI
Violette Huegerich — Single, 2 walks, RBI
Lily Leedy — 2 singles
Allie Lucero — Triple, 3 RBI
