It was the big show and a swan song all rolled into one.

Coupeville High School track and field hosted the season-ending Northwest 2B/1B League Championships Saturday, and the event doubled as a Senior Night and a photo extravaganza.

A couple of days down the road, wanderin’ photo whiz kid John Fisken has released his pics from the day, and you can see a collection of them here.

The Wolves hang out between events.

Short season, big accomplishments.

The ongoing pandemic limited the high school track and field season to just six meets, but Coupeville’s athletes excelled every step of the way.

Saturday was no different, as the Wolves won five titles and set 21 PR’s during the season-closing Northwest 2B/1B League Championships.

Competing on their home turf, CHS junior Logan Martin and senior Sam Wynn spent the most time on the awards podium, both winning a pair of titles.

Martin was tops in the shot put and discus, while Wynn bolted to a win in the 100, then ran a leg on a triumphant 4 x 100 relay squad.

He was joined on that squad by underclassmen Reiley Aracely, Dominic Coffman, and Aidan Wilson.

Also winning a title was Catherine Lhamon, who crushed the field in her final try at the 3200.

Beating her closest opponent by a minute and six seconds, the Wolf senior lapped four of her six foes.

Coming dangerously close to grabbing league titles were sophomore Ryanne Knoblich (high jump), Wilson (long jump), and the boys 4 x 400 relay unit, which all claimed second-place finishes.

By the time the day had ended, 14 Wolves had set a PR, with seven of them notching two personal bests.

That group included Aurora Cernick, Hank Milnes, Mikey Robinett, Ava Mitten, Camryn Clark, Wynn, and Cristina McGrath.

Perennial track power Mount Vernon Christian, which came to town with a deep, talented squad, claimed both team titles.

Coupeville finished third in the boys battle, and fourth in the girls rumble.

Some solid throws, some zippy runs.

The Coupeville High School track and field squad put in a strong day of work Thursday in Mount Vernon, capturing four titles and setting 32 PR’s at an eight-team meet.

Leading the way for the Wolves were Logan Martin, who claimed top honors in the shot put and discus, Aidan Wilson, who ran away with the 800 crown, and the boys 4 x 100 relay squad.

That unit, made up of Sam Wynn, Reiley Araceley, Dominic Coffman, and Wilson, out-leaned La Conner to capture the title.

Coupeville also notched four second-place finishes, with Catherine Lhamon (1600), Ryanne Knoblich (high jump), the boys 4 x 400 relay team, and Coffman (high jump) pushing the top finishers.

Track powerhouse Mount Vernon Christian defended its home turf, sitting atop the leaderboard in both the boys and girls team standings, while the Wolf squads finished fourth and fifth, respectively.

CHS has two meets left in this pandemic-shortened season, with a trip to La Conner Wednesday, March 31, followed by the Northwest 2B/1B League Championships.

That finale, set for April 3, will be in Coupeville.

They had plenty of company.

Coupeville High School sent 13 runners to the Gear Up Sports Northwest Preview/Sehome Invitational in Bellingham Saturday, and those Wolves found themselves surrounded on all sides.

There were 43 schools represented at the meet, with more than 100 runners in each of nine races.

The day’s competition was divided up by class, with freshmen running against each other, and on through sophomores, juniors, and seniors.

Coupeville’s top performance came from freshmen Mitchell Hall, who covered the two-mile course in 12 minutes, 46.64 seconds.

He was one of eight Wolf boys to compete — six of those harriers are freshmen — while the CHS girls sent five to the starting line.

Coupeville is right back at it next Saturday, when they travel a much-shorter distance.

The destination will be South Whidbey High School, and the event will be the 41st edition of the Carl Westling Invitational.


Saturday’s results:




Claire Mayne (57th) 15:46.87
Helen Strelow (58th) 15:47.73
Cristina McGrath (100th) 18:01.51 *PR*
