They’re 18 strong in the early going.

While players may still come and go, Coupeville Middle School boys basketball coaches Bob Martin and Dante Mitchell have a pretty good idea of what they’ll have to work with.

And what that is, is a fair amount of 8th graders (13) and a bare bones amount of 7th graders (just five).

Last year, it was the other way around, as the younger team was the well-stocked one.

With most of that crew staying with the game, Mitchell will have plenty of bodies to mix and match, while Martin is hustling to try and attract some more players to turn out.

The rosters as they stand through after day one of practice:

8th grade:

Lucious Binnings
Isaiah Bittner
Aiden Burdge
Brayden Coatney
Brawn Gadberry
Tony Garcia
Logan Martin
Caleb Meyer
Xavier Murdy
Grady Rickner
Cody Roberts
Damon Stadler
Hawthorne Wolfe

7th grade:

Dominic Coffman
Alex Murdy
Kevin Partida
Levi Pulliam

Genna Wright

Genna Wright (with ball), breakin’ ankles and takin’ names all day long.

It’s their time to own the court.

With the start of the season less than a week away (Thursday, Feb. 18 at home against Chimacum, 3:15 tip), the Coupeville Middle School girls’ basketball squads are hard at work.

8th grade hoops guru Bob Martin has 15 girls, while guru-in-training Ryan King will have to make do with just seven 7th graders, it appears.

Since they can swap players around a bit (middle school rules are flexible like that), it shouldn’t be too much of a problem.

The rosters as they stand today:

8th grade:

Ashleigh Battaglia
Luci Coleburn
Hannah Davidson
Jaden Marrs
Emma Mathusek
Cassidy Moody
Cynthia Rachal
Marenna Rebischke-Smith
Avalon Renninger
Scout Smith
Megan Thorn
Maya Toomey-Stout
Seriana Weatherford
Melia Welling
Tia Wurzrainer

7th grade:

Brooke Ausman
Mollie Bailey
Thora Iverson
Catherine Lhamon
Morgan Pease
Chelsea Prescott

Matthew Kelley

Matthew Kelley (10) will not be denied. The ball belongs to him.

The guys have first.

Middle school basketball officially kicks off next Monday (Nov. 30) when Coupeville hosts Chimacum.

Tip-off time is 3:15, with the 8th graders playing in the high school gym and the 7th graders holding court across the hallway in the middle school gym.

That will hold true for a 10-game schedule which has the CMS boys playing at home on Mondays and on the road Thursdays.

The boys wrap their season Jan. 14, then the Wolf girls will inherit the court starting Feb. 1.

As you mentally prepare for the home opener, here’s a look at the roster, which numbers 27 players including a number of guys who have been already making names for themselves at the SWISH level.

7th grade:

Tyson Bovee
Michael Breuer
Alex Jimenez
Matthew Kelley
James Mayne
Jake Mitten
Daniel Olson
Gage Powers
Ben Smith
Jacob Thurston

8th grade:

Trevor Bell
Jered Brown
Jaylen Nitta
