How many days until games return?

A few.

Until then, some photos to tide you over — with today’s batch featuring the Wolf boys.

Action was fast and furious, but the camera was quicker.

Fueled by the Diet Coke someone bought him, wanderin’ photographer John Fisken bounced between gyms Saturday, capturing both of Coupeville High School’s boys basketball teams in action against Forks.

The pics above and below are courtesy him, but are just the tip of the iceberg.

To see everything he shot, and possibly buy some glossies for grandma, pop over to:

Basketball is upon us.

A compressed pandemic-era hoops season kicks off Tuesday, with the Coupeville High School boys starting a 12-game campaign on the road in Mount Vernon.

After that, the games fly fast and furious, with the season finale set for June 17.

As you prep for a month of hardwood action, an early look at the players wearing Wolf uniforms.

​Quinten Simpson-Pilgrim is ready to mix things up a bit.

As he heads into his freshman year at Coupeville High School, the promising young student/athlete plans to stay with one longtime favorite sport, while trying another for the first time.

Simpson-Pilgrim, following in the footsteps of older brother Jacobi, who graduated this spring, is already a veteran on the basketball court.

“Basketball is my favorite because it’s fun, and I have stuck with it throughout my whole life,” Simpson-Pilgrim said.

​”I think my strengths are stamina and my physical strength,” he added. “I’d like to work on rebounding.”

While he was a member of the first-ever Coupeville Middle School boys soccer squad this past fall, Simpson-Pilgrim has his sights set on a different sport for his high school days.

He plans to turn out for cross country, which has been bumped from September to March along with other fall sports, as the world deals with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Regardless of when he gets to compete, Simpson-Pilgrim plans to be ready to take full advantage of his opportunities.

“I always have something to focus on getting better at and have something to do.” he said. “My goal is to make varsity (in my sports) before my junior year.”

A big fan of his math and PE classes, Simpson-Pilgrim enjoys playing games, listening to music, and hanging out with friends when he’s not pursuing his athletic dreams.

While he strives for success, the young Wolf is quick to give credit to those who are helping him on his journey.

“The people that have the biggest impact on me are my previous (basketball) coach, Greg White, who has been my coach since 2nd grade, and my mom, because she is always a part of my team and helping plan stuff.”

Wherever you go, Morgan White (and her camera) will be there.

The Wolf mom delivered a ton of great photos during the fall, covering Coupeville Middle School cross country from a variety of vantage points along the trail and track.

Now, she’s moved inside, turning her lens on the CMS boys basketball squads as they play.

The pics above come from three different games, and we appreciate them all.
