Eryn Wood swats a shot while holding court last spring.

The courts were alive with the sound of tennis balls being whacked by rackets.

And then, silence.

The COVID-19 pandemic brought a brutally-quick ending to the spring sports season, preventing Coupeville High School teams from playing any contests against rival schools.

For a Wolf tennis team which offered a mix of returning veterans and bright-eyed newcomers, that’s a shame.

But even if their season ended too soon, we can still take a moment to recognize the netters and their coaches.

The 2020 CHS girls tennis team would have been…

Derek Leyva was set to make a run at the CHS soccer career scoring record before the COVID-19 pandemic erased the season. (Photo by JohnsPhotos.net)

Abraham Leyva keeps his Coupeville High School soccer career scoring record.

That was in doubt until the COVID-19 pandemic erased spring sports before any games could be played.

Denied their senior seasons, Abraham’s cousin Derek (38 goals) and younger brother Aram (29) won’t catch the first Leyva, who hit the back of the net 45 times in three seasons.

As we contemplate a lost season, a look at the players and coaches who were primed to make a run on the pitch this spring.

The 2020 edition of Wolf soccer would have featured …


Aiden Anderson
Owen Barenburg
Aiden Burdge
Chris Cernick

The bats are put away, the diamond silent.

The COVID-19 pandemic brought an early end to spring sports in Washington state, denying Coupeville athletes and their rivals a chance to play.

It stings, especially for those whose senior season was erased.

But while CHS baseball players won’t get a chance to take the field, they won’t be forgotten.

The 2020 Wolf team that was to be…


Cameron Gates
Mason Grove
Scott Hilborn
Coen Killian
Gavin Knoblich
Xavier Murdy
Daniel Olson
Cody Roberts
Andrew Score
Sage Sharp
Johnny Valenzuela
Seth Weatherford
Ulrik Wells
Hawthorne Wolfe

State tourney veteran Mollie Bailey was set to play a major role for the CHS softball squad as a junior. (Photos by JohnsPhotos.net)

Coral Caveness, who played strongly as the Wolves made their postseason run last spring, was also back for more, only to be denied by the pandemic.

They were ready to kick-start a dynasty.

Coming off a very-successful trip to the state tourney last spring, which included its first win at the big dance since 2002, the Coupeville High School softball team returned most of its roster of high-powered diamond aces.

Unfortunately, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, spring sports fell by the wayside, and the Wolf sluggers never got a chance to make it back to Richland this spring.

But while they never saw the field (in a live game vs. an opponent, at least), we can still take a moment to hail them for the work they put in while practice was still in session.

The 2020 CHS softball squad would have been…



Mollie Bailey
Coral Caveness
Mackenzie Davis
Maddie Georges
Gwen Gustafson
Emma Mathusek
Sofia Peters
Chelsea Prescott
Jill Prince
Marenna Rebischke-Smith
Audrianna Shaw
Scout Smith
Kylie Van Velkinburgh

The seasons are a’changing.

It’s not just Daylight Savings Time, which is roaring up on us, but also the sounds of basketballs thunking against gym floors.

The Coupeville Middle School boys are the first ones to claim the hardwood, having opened practice Monday.

The 10-game Wolf schedule runs through Dec. 19, with the first game set for Nov. 13.

To peruse said schedule, pop over to:


Greg White returns to coach, while Jon Roberts and Craig Anderson join him this time around.

Continuing a new trend started during volleyball season, the CMS hoops squads will not be divided up by grade, but by talent level.

Instead of 7th and 8th playing separately, there will be three teams — Level 1, 2, and 3 — with each squad featuring a mix of the two grades.

Two days into practice, the Wolf coaches have 26 players to draw upon.

While some may go, and some may show up late, here’s how things stand as of mid-Tuesday:



Jordan Bradford
Hunter Bronec
Hurlee Bronec
Carson Fields
Tavan Hughes
Jesus Madrigal
Jack Porter
Johnny Porter
Zander Pulliam
Landon Roberts
Nic Wasik


Ryan Blouin
Alex Clark
William Davidson
