Right back at it.

Bouncing back strongly from its first loss of the season, the Coupeville 8th grade SWISH girls basketball team got back on the winning side of things Saturday, drilling Orcas Island 34-9.

The win lifts the Wolves to 5-1 heading into the final weekend of regular-season play.

Coupeville plays a doubleheader Dec. 8, facing Victorious Hoops and Arlington, then wades into the fray of the league tourney Dec. 15.

Saturday’s game was all about domination, as the Wolves sprinted out to a 12-0 lead after one quarter of play and never looked back.

By the time it was done, Coupeville had gotten points from seven of its 10 players and outscored Orcas in all four quarters of play.

Carolyn Lhamon paced the Wolves with seven points, while Maddie Georges and Alita Blouin tickled the twine for six apiece.

Brionna Blouin and Savina Wells each added five, with Blouin netting a long three-ball, while Gwen Gustafson knocked down three and Nezi Keiper popped for two.

Coupeville controlled the glass all game, with Wells, a 6th grader playing two grades up, yanking down a game-high 15 rebounds.

Lhamon (7) and Keiper (6) provided support on the boards, while Ryanne Knoblich, Lauren Marrs and Gustafson all pulled down two rebounds apiece.

Hayley Fiedler, a scrapper on defense, rounded out the Wolf squad.

How long was it, you ask? Very long.

Wednesday’s middle school volleyball clash between Langley and Coupeville went on for 4+ hours, giving John Fisken time to shoot a bunch of pics, wander away to complete another job, and still get back with enough time to shoot some more glossies.

The photos seen above are a mix of 8th and 7th grade varsity matches, as he was off on the other shoot during the JV rumbles.

The mission was simple – get in, put down a beatin’, get out.

Mission accomplished.

Both Coupeville Middle School girls basketball teams rolled to blowout wins Monday, thrashing host Chimacum quickly and efficiently.

The Wolf 7th graders cruised to a 40-7 rout, upping their record to 5-1 on the season, while the CMS 8th graders improved to 4-2 after collecting a 41-12 victory.

Both squads will get a much bigger test Thursday, when they return home to face Stevens, a ginormous middle school from Port Angeles.

The first time the two schools faced this season they split games, with Coupeville’s 7th graders and Stevens’ 8th graders coming out on top.

Monday afternoon was a romp from start to finish, with the Wolves getting 15 players in the scoring column.

7th grade:

Coupeville dominated in the paint, with Carolyn Lhamon going off for 14 and Nezi Keiper banging home a season-high 11.

Maddie Georges (8), Gwen Gustafson (2), Alita Blouin (2), Jessenia Camarena (2) and Adrian Burrows (1) rounded out the Wolf offensive attack.

8th grade:

Runnin’ and gunnin’, Audrianna Shaw outscored Chimacum by herself, slapping home 15 points with a variety of slick moves and killer finishes.

Ja’Kenya Hoskins swished eight, Anya Leavell torched the nets for six and Kiara Contreras banked in four to back their leader up.

Also scratching their names in the scoring column were Ella Colwell (3), Lily Leedy (2), Abby Mulholland (2) and Kylie Van Velkinburgh (1).
