No rest for the truly dedicated.

A look at spring rosters shows that 22 Coupeville High School students — 10 girls and 12 boys — are finishing the job as three-sport athletes for the 2022-2023 school year.

At schools with small student bodies, having a strong showing in year-round athletes is huge, so it’s great to see so many Wolves complete the trifecta.

There are plenty of reasons why some CHS athletes choose to play just one or two sports, starting with the fact basketball is their only option during winter.

Don’t play God’s chosen sport? Can’t be a three-sport athlete in Cow Town.

Unless you make the move to wrestle or swim with another school during the snowy months, but that has been an infrequent occurrence.

Injuries, a need to concentrate on academics, home life requirements, or simply a desire to have a job or get your license — all reasons which sometimes come into play when sports-related decisions are made.

To each, their own choice.

But today we praise the 22 who made the commitment, in time and effort, to be an athlete for all seasons.

The blog is called Coupeville Sports, after all, and not Coupeville Teens Washing Dishes.

Another game, another couple milestones.

Coupeville High School junior Nick Guay cracked the 100-point club Friday night, tossing in 13 points at Mount Vernon Christian.

With 95 and counting this campaign, and six from his sophomore season, he now has 101 points for his varsity days.

Meanwhile fellow junior Cole White banked in a team-high 15, pushing his career total to 132.

That puts him, for the moment, in a tie with Craig Anderson on the all-time CHS boys’ basketball scoring chart.

The middle school hoops coach is the father of freshman varsity player Chase Anderson, linking Cole White, whose own dad Greg scored 604 points back in the day, to both father and son.

Just two of many stories behind the stats, with three weeks of regular season games left to play.

A bump in the road.

Friday night’s loss at Mount Vernon Christian stings, but it’s not fatal for the Coupeville High School varsity boys’ basketball team.

Facing a Hurricane team which seemed unable to miss all night, the Wolves fell 73-53, snapping a four-game winning streak.

For the moment, the loss drops Coupeville to 2-2 in Northwest 2B/1B League play, 9-6 overall.

But the silver lining is MVC is a 1B school, and the Wolves rep a 2B program.

So, while the Hurricanes earned a split in the team’s two-game series, this is the last time the squads will play this season.

Coupeville, which won the first time the schools squared off, still controls its own playoff destiny, as only its games against fellow 2B rivals La Conner and Friday Harbor decide who makes it to the postseason.

With one matchup against the Braves, and two against the Wolverines still ahead on the schedule, the Wolves head to Concrete Tuesday to face a 3-11 Lions team.

For CHS coach Brad Sherman and his team, basketball offers the reprieve of not having to wait long for the next game.

A day off Sunday, a day of practice Monday, and then back to the hardwood.

Coupeville didn’t play all that badly against MVC, matching them with five three-balls and getting big performances from its role players.

Problem is, the Hurricanes just had one of those nights when everything they threw up in the air seemed to catch the rim just right.

Once the Wolves were trailing, they would slice a bit here, a bit there, only to see MVC deliver yet another dagger in front of its home fans.

With Cole White popping for a quick five points in the early going, Coupeville led 11-9 heading towards the first break.

Then the Hurricane(s) hit and hit hard.

Using a 6-0 run to claim a 15-11 lead at the first break, MVC stretched its advantage out to 36-24 by halftime.

The Hurricanes clamped down on Coupeville’s leading scorers, Logan Downes and Alex Murdy, but the Wolves got help from the bench.

Nick Guay tossed in three buckets during the second quarter, while Zane Oldenstadt, normally a defense-first big man, connected on back-to-back jumpers to give CHS a fighting chance.

Coupeville got the lead down to seven at 45-38 late in the third quarter on a White pullup jumper, but the ‘Canes responded immediately.

Same thing in the final frame, as the Wolves cut a 12-point deficit to eight, only to have MVC go on an 8-0 run.

Another late Hurricane surge, this one 9-0, made the final score seem like more of a blowout than the game really was.

White paced the Wolves with a varsity career-high 15-point performance, while Guay tossed in 13, and Downes added 12.

Alex Murdy (7), Oldenstadt (4), and Dominic Coffman (2) also scored, with Jonathan Valenzuela, William Davidson, Chase Anderson, and Ryan Blouin seeing floor time.

Liam Millenaar led MVC with 23 points, with Billy DeJong knocking down 18 in support.

The fab five is filling up the bucket.

So far, 37 different Coupeville High School basketball players have scored this season, with four boys and one girl averaging double-digits.

Junior gunner Logan Downes leads the way, having topped 20 points in each of four games.

At 23.5 a night, he’s joined by fellow varsity vets Alex Murdy (13.8), Alita Blouin (13.0), and Nick Guay (10.8), as well as JV ace Chase Anderson (10.0).

The week ahead gives that five-pack, and their teammates, plenty of chances to ring up some more points.

Wolf varsity teams face Crescent, Sedro-Woolley, and Forks in a four-day span between Wednesday and Saturday, with the JV playing against the second and third of those foes.

Bombs away.

Four different players hit double digits Tuesday, as the Coupeville High School varsity boys’ basketball squad romped to a blowout win in Tacoma.

Shredding host Concordia Christian Academy 81-31, the Wolves notch their first win of the young season, rising to 1-2 in non-conference action.

The game was just recently added to the schedule after a matchup with Auburn Adventist Academy was bumped to February.

That gave Coupeville little time to prepare for an opponent it’s never faced before, but it didn’t matter much.

The Wolves, coming off hard-fought losses to South Whidbey and Lakewood, hit the floor Tuesday and blitzed Concordia from the opening tip.

Junior gunner Logan Downes rattled the rims for 13 points in the first quarter, and with some offensive help from Alex Murdy, Nick Guay, and Cole White, he helped Coupeville sprint out to a 29-13 lead.

Murdy hammered the Hawks for another 10 points in the second frame as the Wolves stretched their lead out to 53-21 by the halftime break, and the rout was on.

An 18-4 surge in the third quarter put a running clock into play, but even with the seconds flying off the board, the Wolves still outscored their hosts 10-6 in the final frame.

It was an equal opportunity night for Coupeville, with Downes leading the way with a game-high 26, including a pair of three-balls.

He’s kicked off the new season with three straight 20+ point performances, having thrown down 25 against South Whidbey and 22 versus Lakewood.

Tuesday’s work officially moves Downes into the top 100 scorers in CHS boys’ basketball history, which dates back to 1917.

Jumping from 271 to 297 career points, he passes 12 former Wolves, including program legends such as Risen Johnson, Keith Jameson, Boom Phomvongkoth, and Aaron Curtin.

Already the highest-scoring of Ralph and Angie’s three sons, Logan Downes sits just a three-ball shy of becoming the 96th Wolf male to crack the 300-point club.

Murdy dropped in a season-high 16 as Wolf coach Brad Sherman claimed his 40th win at the school, with Nick Guay adding a varsity career-best 15, and Cole White banking in 11.

Ryan Blouin (6), Jermiah Copeland (2), Jonathan Valenzuela (2), Chase Anderson (2), and Zane Oldenstadt (1) rounded out the scoring, with William Davidson and Quinten Simpson-Pilgrim also seeing floor time.

Coupeville returns to action this Saturday, Dec. 10, when it hosts Sultan in a non-conference rumble.

JV tips at 3:00 PM, varsity at 4:45.
