The glossy images spring from the camera(s) of John Fisken, whose other work can be found here:

The spikes were flying, the celebrations were rockin’, and the cameras were clicking from all angles.

Coupeville High School’s volleyball squads hosted their home opener Tuesday, the first time a Wolf team played indoors against a rival since the pandemic first broke more than a year ago.

It’s all about learning from your mistakes.

The Coupeville High School JV girls basketball squad is a solid team, often inspired, but Tuesday night it ran into a better version of itself.

Facing a King’s team which took advantage of any errors, the Wolves fell 41-18 in their final trip to Shoreline.

With the loss, Coupeville slips to 5-2 in North Sound Conference action, 9-4 overall.

The young Wolves have three games left on their schedule, all at home, and a chance to finish strongly.

The JV hosts Granite Falls Friday, then welcomes South Whidbey and La Conner to town the following week.

While her team fell to the always-strong Knights, CHS coach Megan Smith came away from the contest feeling pretty good about things overall.

“We played well, but they played better,” she said. “They really capitalized on our mistakes and used them to their advantage.

“The nice thing about games like this is it really shows us what we truly need to work on.”

Tuesday’s tilt was largely decided in the first quarter, as King’s bolted out to a 13-2 lead and never looked back.

Coupeville kept things much closer over the next two frames, but, even then, the Knights used 9-4 and 9-5 runs to stretch the margin out.

Wolf freshman Ryanne Knoblich had the hot hand for the visitors, banging home eight points, including four in the final quarter.

Joining her in the scoring column were Alita Blouin (5), Anya Leavell (2), Jessenia Camarena (2), and Gwen Gustafson (1).

Morgan Stevens, Ella Colwell, Mollie Bailey, Kylie Van Velkinburgh, and Audrianna Shaw also saw floor time for the Wolves.

Megan Smith had a lot of company.

With four varsity bench players swinging down to JV Monday to pick up some quality floor time, the Coupeville High School coach had 15 players on her bench.

And Smith used all of them, getting every girl in the game, getting scoring from more than half, and rolling to a 39-13 win at Granite Falls.

The victory gives the Wolf JV a nice bounce back after a narrow loss Friday, and lifts them to 4-1 in North Sound Conference play, 7-3 overall.

With a ton of players at her disposal, including newly-minted swing players Anya Leavell, Mollie Bailey, Kylie Van Velkinburgh, and Audrianna Shaw, Smith was able to mix and match all night, and every unit she put on the floor seemed to click.

Coupeville jumped out to a 14-6 lead after one quarter of play, with freshman Ryanne Knoblich dropping in six points to lead the attack.

After a defensive-minded brawl in the second frame, the Wolves edged their lead out to 18-9 at the half, then turned on the jets after the break.

Shaw banked in six points during a 9-2 run in the third quarter, before Gwen Gustafson popped for five to spur an 11-2 surge to close the game in style.

Knoblich earned game-high honors with 10 points, while Shaw (8), Gustafson (7), Leavell (4), Abby Mulholland (3), and Van Velkinburgh (3) also came up big.

Rounding out the scoring attack were Bailey (2) and Heidi Meyers (2).

Natalie Castano, Morgan Stevens, Ella Colwell, Claire Mayne, Jessenia Camarena, Alita Blouin, and Savana Allen also saw floor time for the Wolves, who return to action with back-to-back games later this week.

The CHS girls travel to Bothell Friday to face Cedar Park Christian, then hop across to the mainland on the ferry Saturday to play Port Townsend.
