They’re scoring at a record-setting pace.

With 39 goals through 10 games, the Coupeville High School boys soccer squad is on target to put up its best offensive numbers in at least a decade.

Having peppered goalies for five more scores since last time we discussed the subject, the current Wolves have tied the 2010 team, and are just nine back of the high-powered ’16 squad.

The numbers for the nine CHS seasons the Olympic League web site has recorded:

2010 – 39 goals
2011 – 30
2012 – 27
2013 – 15
2014 – 22
2015 – 37
2016 – 48
2017 – 26
2018 – 39 and counting

Coupeville (3-1 in Olympic League play, 4-4-2 overall) has five conference games left, and then likely heads to the playoffs.

If the Wolves maintain their current scoring pace, they would obliterate the mark set by the ’16 team.

But, of course, you have to play the games first, and the schedule ahead is a bit tricky.

Two of those regular-season matches are against Klahowya, which has surrendered just six goals this season, none against 1A Olympic League foes.

But, one of those tilts comes against Chimacum, a team that has been shredded for 62 goals in six games.

So, it may balance itself out.

Scoring stats through Apr. 15:

Derek Leyva – 16
Aram Leyva
– 7
Sam Wynn
– 4
Pedro Gamarra
– 3
William Nelson
– 3
Ethan Spark
– 2

It was prime picture-taking weather.

While the sun was out Friday, there was a nasty lil’ prairie breeze assaulting everyone who stood still too long.

In an effort to keep warm, travelin’ camera clicker John Fisken bounced between the baseball field, and the more-sheltered soccer pitch.

The pics seen above, a mix of on and off field action, are courtesy him.

   Coupeville’s road and trail warriors — Sam Wynn, Danny Conlisk and Henry Wynn. (Matt Simms photo)

They started on the road and finished on the road.

With no active cross country program at their own school, three Coupeville High School harriers struck a deal with their Island rivals.

Wolves Henry Wynn, Danny Conlisk and Sam Wynn trained and traveled with South Whidbey (while wearing CHS uniforms), then split off on their own for the postseason.

Once there Conlisk ran all the way to the state meet, becoming the first Wolf to make it to the big dance since Tyler King won the 1A boys title in 2010.

Now, the trio have officially capped their season, receiving letters alongside their Falcon “teammates” at a season-ending shindig.

Henry Wynn was the lone senior for the Wolves, with Conlisk, a junior, and Sam Wynn, a freshman, expected to return to running next fall.

That may be at Coupeville, as there are rumors of the Wolves restarting their dormant program, which has a long and distinguished history.

If not, they’ll likely head back down the trail to Langley and reunite with the Falcons.

   You had one job! At least three school names are misspelled on the shirt given out Saturday at the Bellevue Cross Country Invitational. Of course, Coupeville is one… (Dawnelle Conlisk photos)

   Together, in uniform and in action, for the first time — Danny Conlisk (469), Henry Wynn (470) and Sam Wynn.

Team work!

For the first time this season all three Coupeville High School cross country runners were in uniform and on the course on the same day.

The Wolves, who travel and train with South Whidbey while they wait for CHS to revive its own storied program, ran Saturday at the 56-team Bellevue Cross Country Invitational at Lake Sammamish State Park.

Danny Conlisk, back in action after missing a meet due to illness, tore up the course, cruising through 5,000 meters in 17 minutes, 48.3 seconds, to finish 40th out of 74 runners in his flight.

That’s not only a PR for the Wolf junior, but a huge time drop, as he shaved 48 seconds off his previous best performance.

Running in the same race, CHS senior Henry Wynn finished 63rd in 19:00.

Rounding out the Wolf competitors was freshman Sam Wynn, who made his high school cross country debut.

The lil’ brother rambled home in 21:14.

The Invitational featured 13 different races, seven for boys and six for girls.

Coupeville’s trio really hit the road for their next event, traveling to Missoula, Montana for the 80-team Mountain West Classic Saturday, Sept. 30.

The trail is long and winding, and they have many miles to go.

For a second straight season, Coupeville High School will be back in the cross country game — but without a team based out of its own campus.

The Wolves will send senior Henry Wynn, junior Danny Conlisk and freshman Sam Wynn down the Island to train and travel with South Whidbey.

The trio will wear CHS uniforms during meets and split from the Falcons for postseason events.

It’s a compromise for now, but there is a substantial push to revive Coupeville’s own cross country program, which has a rich history, including state champions Natasha Bamberger (1985) and Tyler King (2010).

While nothing is set in stone, there have been  indications CHS could restart its own harrier program in 2018, in time for Conlisk’s senior season.

He and Henry Wynn are back for a second season of competing as mercenaries, while Sam Wynn will make his high school debut this season.

Henry Wynn competed in six events last season, topping off his campaign with a PR in the Olympic League Championships and a 26th place finish at districts.

Conlisk, who was bothered by injuries, ran in four events during the 2016 season, and his time of 18 minutes and 36 seconds at the 5,000 meter Nike Twilight Invitational was the best by a Wolf runner.

If the CHS trio compete at every event South Whidbey is scheduled to be at, including a late September trip to a meet in Montana, they would be on target to run in as many as 11 meets this season.

The cross country schedule: 

Wed-Sept. 6 @ River Meadows Run (Arlington)
Sat-Sept. 9 @ Sehome Invitational
Sat-Sept. 16 @ Carl Westling Invitational (South Whidbey)
Sat-Sept. 23 @ Bellevue Cross Country Invitational
Sat-Sept. 30 @ Mountain West Classic (Montana)
Thur-Oct. 5 @ Cascade Conference meet (South Whidbey)
Sat-Oct. 7 @ Nike Hole in the Wall XC Invitational (Lakewood)
Thur-Oct. 12 @ Cascade Conference Meet (Shoreline)
Thur-Oct. 19 @ Olympic League Championships (Sequim)
Sat-Oct. 28 @ Districts (University Place)
Sat-Nov. 4 @ 1A State Meet (Pasco)
