They were primed to chase school records and vie for state titles.

Longtime Coupeville High School track and field guru Randy King and his hardy band of assistant coaches had a substantial group of athletes ready for a new season.

Then, the COVID-19 pandemic erased the 2020 spring sports season.

While they won’t get a chance to set PR’s and try to punch their ticket to the big show in Cheney, we can still take a moment to honor the Wolves who were making the commitment to track excellence.

The team that would have been was…

It was gonna be ginormous.

There were 50(!) athletes ready to turn out for track and field at Coupeville Middle School this spring, much to the delight of their coaches.

But, before the Wolves could get going, the COVID-19 pandemic shut down schools, then erased the season before it could begin.

It’s a bittersweet moment for CMS coach Elizabeth Bitting, who would have been joined by fellow track guru Jon Gabelein.

“Very disappointing, but so understandable,” Bitting said.

“And our (high school) senior volunteer coach, Coach Kenji (Jaylen Nitta), was looking forward to coaching this season as well. He is very disappointed.”

While the trio of Wolf coaches won’t be working with their athletes at the track, Bitting, who also coaches in the fall, is already looking ahead with the hope prep sports will return.

“So I figure in the next few weeks I’ll send out an email for cross country!!!” she said with a note of conviction in her voice.

 

The 2020 CMS track team would have been:

 

6th grade:

Cody Badger
Teagan Calkins
Aleksia Jump
Jeann Nitta
Brynn Parker
Malichi Somes
George Spear
Liza Zustiak

 

7th grade:

Chase Anderson
Edie Bittner
Preston Epp
Mia Farris
Oktober Frost
Isabella Gaspio
Tavan Hughes
Katie Marti
Chloe Marzocca
Candace Meek
Jack Porter
Johnny Porter
Landon Roberts
Lyla Stuurmans
Nicholas Wasik
Savina Wells
Laila Wenzel

One week until they’re unleashed on the world.

The spike-happy Coupeville Middle School volleyball players, who go 31 deep, open a new season Monday, Sept. 23 on the road in Granite Falls.
