It’s a whole new ballgame.

With schools largely restricted to distance learning, and no sports until at least January 2021, thanks to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the way things work have been changed.

But, thanks to one hard-working adviser, and a pack of opportunistic students, Coupeville High School still plans to put out a yearbook.

“We have a group of students who have committed to put together a yearbook this year, despite the obvious challenges,” said CHS yearbook adviser Jackie Saia.

“They are determined to make this a book like no other in CHS history, but they will need the help of the students, parents, and the community as a source for photos and content.”

A website for the yearbook is now live, and, on it, you can find out how to preorder the book.

There’s also info on how to submit photos, as well as creating and purchasing senior congratulatory ads.

The pandemic is throwing everything askew, but keeping alive the yearbook tradition matters both this year, and in the future.

“While distance learning and social distancing is difficult for all, it is certainly unique and is part of our story,” Saia said. “25, 50, 100 years from now, this will be a historical document for your child’s high school year of 2020-2021.

“We hope you can help make it the best publication possible! Thank you!”

Her latest masterpiece.

Does your kid draw?

Maybe they paint, or take photos, or write stories, or craft poems, or do just about anything creative.

If so, this is the time to let the world see what they can do, and also give me stuff to publish during our current sports slowdown.

Doesn’t matter if they attend school in Coupeville, Oak Harbor, or on the South end of the Island.

It’s open to everyone on Whidbey.

Contact me on Facebook or email me at davidsvien@hotmail.com, and let’s get your offspring their moment in the spotlight.

Shelli Trumbull and her trusty camera. (John Fisken photo)

Coupeville Sports would not exist without Shelli Trumbull.

She was the first photographer to step up and let me use her photos when I started this here thing 1,650 articles ago.

Since then I have run hundreds of her pics, covering nearly every sport in town. Heck, the banner photo at the top of this blog — featuring Carson Risner and Aaron Trumbull on the baseball field — is hers.

She is always there, shooting, never complaining, never making me pay the big bucks a newspaper would have to pay to get the same work.

Through rain and ice-soaked baseball games to countless times when she has hit the road and followed her children Aaron and Alexis on the road as they compete in numerous sports, she is The Woman.

She was also the first person to step up and buy a lifetime ad on Coupeville Sports, and she paid the premium price for it without blinking.

This has been a true community effort, as too many photographers to count have graciously allowed me to use their work without charging me.

John Fisken, who can often be seen dueling with Shelli for prime shooting room on the baseline, is a biggie. But so are the countless moms, dads and Island County Coroners who have aided me.

Above them all, though, is the woman who helped make this thing a reality in the beginning.

Coupeville Sports would not have caught on without the photos, and I wouldn’t have had the photos without Mrs. Trumbull.

She is the best.

Coupeville 3, Orcas Island 0.

Basketballs were flying around the CHS and CMS gyms Saturday, and, if the balls were launched by Wolves, they were going in the bucket. If the visiting Vikings released the jump shot, however, chances were the ball was hitting nothing but rim, or air.

The Wolf varsity girls, varsity boys and JV boys all romped to wins for the first clean sweep of the season. The only thing keeping it from being a 4-for-4 day was the fact Orcas didn’t have a JV girls team to show up and be beaten.

Skipping back and forth between gyms was traveling photographer John Fisken, who snapped the pics above.

Basketball be back.

After 17 long days of wandering through a no-sports wasteland, Coupeville rediscovered its hoops hotshots Friday night, as CHS split a doubleheader with visiting La Conner.

The Wolf boys lost a heart-breaker on the final play of the game, the Wolf girls romped to a wire-to-wire win and John Fisken was there to capture it all.
