This isn’t rocket science.

The most-sustained run of team success the Coupeville High School girls basketball program has enjoyed came in the 2000’s.

While the Wolves launched in 1974, and put together some very-strong runs in the mid and late ’90s, all three of the state tourney banners they own were captured between 2002-2005.

So, it’s no surprise that when you compile the 50 best single-season scoring totals put up by a Wolf girls hoops player, 21 of those campaigns came between 2001-2009.

Other than that, it’s fairly well-balanced, with 15 slots occupied by players from the ’90s, and seven performances apiece coming from the ’80s and the 2010’s.

There are two CHS girls who sit atop the pile, with Brianne King and Zenovia Barron both landing in the top 50 four times.

Ann Pettit, Makana Stone, Ashley Ellsworth-Bagby, and Megan Smith have three slots apiece, with Maureen Wetmore, Tina Lyness, Judy Marti, Lexie Black, Erica Lamb, Terry Perkins, and Brittany Black notching two appearances.

Overall, 29 players have combined to account for the top 50 individual seasons.

Now, there are a couple of small caveats, though the latter matters more than the former.

We have no scoring stats for that first modern-day team, the 1974-1975 squad.

Though, based on other early scoring totals, I’m 99.99992% sure no one from that season would make this list.

More troubling is the fact we’re missing 2-3 games each from three different seasons, so our totals for 2003-2004, 2005-2006, and 2006-2007 are not fully complete.

That affects four players.

Lexie Black, Vanessa Davis, and Brittany Black each have a season where they make the top 50, but could be higher on the chart with those missing games.

I’ve marked those campaigns with asterisks below.

The other person being possibly short-changed is Megan Smith, who I have with 161 points for her freshman season in 2006-2007 (minus two missing games), which is just 13 points off of cracking the top 50.

While she has the #10, #16, and #25 seasons, if we had complete numbers from 06-07, it’s very likely she joins King and Barron in the four-timers club.

With that being said, the 50 best CHS girls single-season scoring totals:

There is no question the ’70s were a golden period for Coupeville High School boys basketball.

It started with the 1969-1970 Wolves, who were the first Whidbey Island hoops team to win a district title, the first CHS squad to go to state, and still the highest-scoring group in program history, 50 years later.

But that was just the beginning.

Whether we look at team accomplishments or individual achievement, the Me Decade players stand head and shoulders above everyone else.

That’s reflected when we look back at the 50 best single-season scoring totals put up by any Wolf hoops player.

Despite playing with no three-point line, while wearing short-shorts, ’70s players account for 19 of those slots.

No other decade even reaches double-digits, with the ’90s and 2000’s accounting for eight apiece.

The ’50s give us five, the ’60s four, and tied for last it’s the ’80s and 2010’s, which land just three top-50 performances.

Randy Keefe, who is #3 in career scoring, is the only Wolf to have three top-50 seasons, landing at #7, #8, and #50.

The only thing keeping him from making it 4-for-4? Freshmen weren’t allowed to play varsity basketball in the early ’70s.

There are 12 other Wolves who managed to crack the top 50 twice in their career, including Jeff Stone and Jeff Rhubottom, who own the best two individual performances.

Others occupying two slots include Bill Jarrell, Mike Bagby, Bill Riley, Hunter Smith, Gavin Keohane, Denny Clark, Jack Elzinga, Rich Morris, Chris Good, and Mike Criscoula.

Overall, 36 players have combined to account for the top 50 individual seasons.

As always when we discuss the 103-year history of the CHS boys basketball program, however, there is one small caveat.

We’re still missing a full season of scoring stats for Elzinga and two for Tom Sahli, who has the 39th best campaign in our semi-complete overview.

With that being said, the 50 best single-season scoring totals:

 

Jeff Stone – (644) – (1969-1970)
Jeff Rhubottom – (459) – (1977-1978)
Pete Petrov (442) – (1995-1996)

With 160 career points, Mason Grove enters the 2019-2020 hoops season as the top active CHS scorer. (Photos by JohnsPhotos.net)

Fellow senior Scout Smith has 142 points, topping all active girls.

With 139 points and two seasons left to play, junior Chelsea Prescott could chomp her way up the career scoring chart.

Hawthorne Wolfe knocked down 158 points last season, most-ever scored by a Wolf freshman boy across 102 seasons of action.

It’s the best time of the year.

We’re not saying basketball is the best sport of them all, but … yeah, actually we are saying basketball is the best sport of them all.

Facts are facts.

And there’s going to be a lot of basketball going down over the next four to five months.

The Coupeville Middle School boys travel to Shoreline Wednesday to face King’s Junior High in the first games of the season.

Then, six days from now, the CHS girls and boys open practice, with their first games slated for the first week of December.

Toss in the CMS girls, who take the court in February, and there’s hoops action a’plenty.

As basketball unfolds, a little side game I have is keeping track of who scores for the high school teams, and how that affects their standings on the career scoring chart.

Through my research, I’ve tracked 102 seasons of CHS boys action and 45 years of girls play, and, while I’m not 100% there (pre-1960’s is a wasteland for reliable stats), I have a pretty good list.

So, as we head towards a new season, #103 and #46, where do the current players sit in the race for the school’s career scoring records? Glad you asked.

The charts below represent all of the players who COULD return, not necessarily those who WILL return.

In the case of one player, Ja’Kenya Hoskins, a leg injury suffered during a dodge-ball tourney, will keep her sidelined for awhile.

She stays on the list however, as the hope is she makes it back sometime during the season.

With the others, until practice gets fully rolling, we won’t know if anyone suddenly lost their love of hoops and decided to take the winter off.

Hopefully not, but you never know.

So, here’s what’s possible:

 

GIRLS (224 players on career chart):

Scout Smith – Senior – 142 points – #79
Chelsea Prescott – Junior – 139 points – #81
Avalon Renninger – Senior – 59 points – #118
Hannah Davidson – Senior – 42 points – #136
Tia Wurzrainer – Senior – 18 points – #165
Izzy Wells – Sophomore – 11 points – #178
Mollie Bailey – Junior – 8 points – #184
Ja’Kenya Hoskins – Sophomore – 5 points – #203
Anya Leavell – Sophomore – 4 points – #205

 

BOYS (391 players on career chart):

Mason Grove – Senior – 160 points – #153
Hawthorne Wolfe – Sophomore – 158 points – #154
Sean Toomey-Stout – Senior – 122 points – #170
Jered Brown – Senior – 100 points – #183
Ulrik Wells – Senior – 78 points – #200
Gavin Knoblich – Senior – 70 points – #212
Jacobi Pilgrim – Senior – 44 points – #253
Koa Davison – Senior – 11 points – #330
Jean Lund-Olsen – Senior – 7 points – #353
Xavier Murdy – Sophomore – 4 points – #368
Daniel Olson – Junior – 3 points – #374

 

The CHS career scoring marks are safe for now, with Brianne King sitting at 1549 and the duo of Jeff Stone and Mike Bagby tied at 1137.

But, current players can make serious inroads this season.

For Smith and Prescott, the Top 50 is less than 100 points away, with Annette Jameson sitting at #50 with 223 points.

On the boys side, Grove and Wolfe have a little bit further to go, with #100 currently being Terry Roberts and his 277 career points.

Time for everyone to start shootin’.

Ashlie Shank and the Coupeville girls kick off the playoffs Feb. 10 with a home game. (Photo by JohnsPhotos.net)

Winter belonged to the RedHawks, but the school year has belonged to the Wolves.

Both Port Townsend basketball teams won league titles Saturday, with the girls ending Coupeville’s three-year run atop the standings.

But, if we look at the entire 2017-2018 school year, CHS is the big dog right now.

Looking at the six fall and winter sports the Wolves play (football, volleyball, boys tennis, girls soccer and girls and boys basketball), they have the most varsity wins of any of the four Olympic League teams with 31.

Klahowya, whose boys basketball team had the title sewn up until a late-season collapse, has 28, while Port Townsend sits with 21.

Chimacum, which has suffered win-less campaigns in boys basketball and tennis, brings up the rear with nine total varsity wins.

Spring is on the horizon, and with that comes softball, baseball, girls tennis and boys soccer as we follow the team wins battle.

Track also arrives, but is largely an individual sport disguised as a team sport, and team win totals are all but impossible to keep track of when multiple schools are involved in every meet.

This is the final year of the current set-up of the Olympic League, as Coupeville is bouncing to the new North Sound Conference next fall.

Before the Wolves go, they would love to repeat as unofficial league-wide champs and defend the varsity wins title they copped last year, when they edged Klahowya 51-48.

The Eagles, who spring from the second-biggest student body in 1A, prevailed 52-40 and 45-42 over CHS the first two years of the league, with Chimacum and Port Townsend well behind in every year.

In other matters, the end of the regular season for basketball means the end of the trail for the Coupeville boys.

While the Wolf girls kick off a playoff run Feb. 10,  their male counterparts were tripped up by the Olympic League only having two playoff slots this season.

Still, before they were done, a couple of Wolves hit milestones.

Ethan Spark topped the 200-point mark in his senior season, while Hunter Smith’s 382 points was the best single season for a Wolf boy since Mike Bagby tossed in 414 back in 2004-2005.

Smith also came very close to having one of the best seasons in school history, with the tenth-best single-season mark by a Wolf boy being 392 by Wade Ellsworth in 1978-1979.

On the girls side of the ball, Wolf junior Lindsey Roberts, who still has games to play, has more than doubled her previous career total.

With 152 points this season, she’s jumped from 137 career points (#77 all-time for CHS girls) to 289 points (#36 all-time).

   As they head into the heart of the league schedule, both CHS hoops teams will need big rebounds like this one pulled down by Hannah Davidson. (Photo by JohnsPhotos.net)

The week ahead is the biggest week yet for the Coupeville High School basketball squads.

The Wolf girls play two games, while the boys have three bouts (with one a makeup for a game postponed when the refs failed to show).

All are against Olympic League foes and the results will greatly impact any chance CHS has to add more league titles to the school’s Wall of Fame.

The Wolf girls, three-time defending champs, sit a half-game off of Chimacum and Port Townsend, no matter what the league’s “official” site would like you to believe.

While it waits for OlympicLeague.com to give it proper credit for a win over Klahowya (the Wolves are 2-2 in conference, not 1-2), Coupeville hosts Klahowya Tuesday and travels to Chimacum Friday.

Meanwhile, the Wolf boys, who are a game back of Port Townsend, have trips to Klahowya Tuesday and Saturday, packaged around a home game Friday against Chimacum.

That night marks the 101st anniversary of CHS boys basketball.

By the time the week is done, both Wolf squads will have six of their nine league games in the books (will OlympicLeague.com keep up???), with just a single game against each of their three conference rivals left.

As both teams head down the stretch, the scoring races are heating up, as well.

On the girls side of the ball, Mikayla Elfrank’s ankle injury, which has sidelined her for several games, has allowed Lindsey Roberts to storm past her and claim the #1 spot on the points chart.

With the guys, no one is likely to catch Hunter Smith, who is more than 100 points ahead of Coupeville’s second-leading scorer as he rises up the school’s career scoring list.

Smith, who is averaging 19.1 a night this season, sits #17 all-time, one decent game from cracking the Top 15.
