Two schools, four teams, one Island, one photographer.

Wanderin’ paparazzi John Fisken stayed busy Saturday, clicking away as Coupeville High School hosted South Whidbey in a pair of girls basketball games.

The Falcons claimed the JV contest, while the Wolves rebounded to come out on top in the varsity tilt, all set to the tune of the click of the camera.

To see everything Fisken snapped, and possibly purchase some glossy mementos for Aunt Ruth and Uncle Roberto down in Boca, pop over to:

Hawthorne Wolfe leaves Mount Vernon Christian in his dust.

Things are about to get much busier.

Or, at least that’s the hope.

Nothing is set in stone during the Age of Coronavirus, but, as of this moment, the Coupeville High School basketball teams are scheduled to play four times this coming week.

The Wolves travel to Darrington Tuesday, Jan. 18, then are home to face Friday Harbor and Concrete the next two nights.

The week gets its cap with non-conference tilts with next door neighbor South Whidbey Saturday, with the Wolf girls at home, and the boys traveling to Langley.

As we wait for a week jam-packed with hoops, a look at where the CHS varsity teams stand in Northwest 2B/1B League play.

Through games of Jan. 15:


Northwest League boys basketball:

School League Overall
Coupeville 5-0 7-0
MV Christian 3-1 6-3
Friday Harbor 2-2 3-4

Savina Wells celebrated her 15th birthday in appropriate fashion — as a winner.

The Coupeville High School freshman was one of 10 players to score Tuesday, as the Wolf varsity girls basketball team obliterated host Concrete 59-25.

The victory lifts CHS to 3-0 in Northwest 2B/1B League play, 4-1 overall, heading into a big showdown at Mount Vernon Christian Friday night.

As the Wolves prep for the weekend — they also have a non-conference clash at South Whidbey Saturday — they sit a half-game off the lead in the NWL.

Defending champs La Conner are 4-0 in league action, 7-0 overall.

Tuesday’s road trip to the wilds of Concrete went off about as well as possible, with the Wolves popping the net from the word go.

Maddie Georges sank two shots from behind the three-point arc in the first quarter, part of an eight-point opening for the junior guard, while Ja’Kenya Hoskins controlled the paint.

Up 17-2 at the first break, Coupeville stretched the margin out to 31-7 by the half, then 50-16 heading into the final frame.

It was the sort of well-balanced, everybody-contributes effort CHS coach Megan Smith is thrilled to see.

“We have a solid team! They are in it to win it,” she said.

“And I am beyond impressed with all the strides I have seen them make so far,” Smith added. “It’s only up from here.”

Shaw and Lyla Stuurmans have had plenty to celebrate.

Georges paced the Wolves with a game-high 13, including a trio of three-balls, while Audrianna Shaw knocked down 12 in support.

Izzy Wells (8), Hoskins (6), Carolyn Lhamon (5), Nezi Keiper (4), Savina Wells (4), Gwen Gustafson (4), Abby Mulholland (2), and Lyla Stuurmans (1) also scored, with freshman Katie Marti also seeing floor time.


JV sidelined:

Concrete only has one team, so Coupeville’s younger stars had the night off.

Ball hits floor, finger clicks camera.

It’s a tale as old as time, as the sound of volleyball being played in the Coupeville High School gym attracts the attention of wanderin’ photographer John Fisken.
