The triple digit club grows.

A couple of games back we were sitting with two Coupeville High School players having cracked 100 points on the season.

Their will to win is off the charts.

Deep on the road Monday, having left their best game at home, the Coupeville High School girls varsity basketball squad never flinched.

They might not be 100% sure how they got away with it, but the Wolves will take their 34-33 win, head home from Granite Falls, and move on.

With one relieved coach leading the way.

“Some nights everything stops working and tonight was that night,” said CHS hoops guru Scott Fox. “But the good news is that good teams find a way to win and we did.

“We had a letdown from (Friday’s) South Whidbey game and really never found our groove,” he added. “We fought hard and made the shots when we had to.

“I’m extremely proud of them finding a way to win.”

With the victory, its third straight, Coupeville rises to 4-1 in North Sound Conference play, 9-3 overall.

Up next, after a couple of days to re-find that groove, is a major test, as the Wolves head to Bothell Friday to face Cedar Park Christian.

The Eagles (5-1, 11-5) gave Coupeville its only league loss, beating them 51-35 two weeks ago.

The Wolves have added some battle hardening since that night, pulling out close wins over Sultan and Granite, wrapped around a methodical thumping of South Whidbey.

Monday’s win was decided by the narrowest of margins, as the two teams put up the exact same score in three of four quarters.

Knotted at 12-12 after the first quarter, the game stayed tied at 16-16 at the half, before Coupeville crept ahead 23-22 headed into the final frame.

Avalon Renninger was the difference in the third quarter, netting a pair of buckets and a single free throw, while Hannah Davidson chipped in with two successful shots from the charity stripe.

With the game on the line, it was Scout Smith time, as the senior point guard swished a pair of three-balls en route to putting up nine of her career-high 17 points in the final frame.

Coupeville’s leading scorer this season, she finished with four treys and continued her steady trek up the career scoring chart.

Smith’s point totals have gone up in each of her three varsity seasons, from 56 as a sophomore, to 86, and now 114 and counting.

With 256 career points, she passed Kendra O’Keefe (244), Marlys West (247), Danette Beckley (249), and Julie Wieringa (252) Monday and is #42 all-time for a program which stretches back to 1974.

Renninger popped for a season-high 10 to back Smith Monday, while Davidson (5) and freshman Maddie Georges (2) rounded out the attack.

Also seeing floor time for Coupeville were Chelsea Prescott, Anya Leavell, Carolyn Lhamon, Izzy Wells, Kylie Van Velkinburgh, and Tia Wurzrainer.

Who will be #3?

Two Coupeville High School basketball players have topped 100 points so far this season, and they both play for the varsity boys squad.

Sophomore Hawthorne Wolfe (158) and senior Mason Grove (108) are already in triple digits, but there’s a pack of Wolves coming up fast.

With just under half the regular season left to play, it’s a pretty sure bet others will crack the barrier.

For now, Daniel Olson (90), Scout Smith (84), Grady Rickner (83), and Sean Toomey-Stout (83) are the closest.

Olson technically has 92, having netted a basket for the varsity squad, while ringing up most of his points on the JV level.

It’s a living, breathing thing.

Sort of.

Over the last couple of years, one of my obsessions has been trying to track down and document a definitive career scoring chart for both Coupeville High School basketball programs.

With the Wolf boys having started play way back in 1917, and the CHS girls joining them in 1974, there’s a lot of moving parts.

I’ve managed to pull together a list which I feel is fairly solid, while also (sort of, kind of) accepting there are some road blocks which may never be fully overcome.

We may never have scoring stats for that first Wolf girls team in 1974-1975, and old school stars Mike Criscuola, Jack Elzinga, and Tom Sahli may not get full credit for their complete stats.

Barring the creation of a time machine, or someone finding missing score books buried in an attic or barn, that’s just reality.

Frustrating as it is.

But, the positive side of this is I have documented the (mostly complete) scoring stats for 392 Wolf boys and 229 girls.

If I was normal, I’d wait until the end of the season, then take the 2019-2020 totals and add them in, updating the list at that point.

Instead, I tweak things after every game, so I can watch history unfold in real time, current players moving upwards, passing the stars of previous eras.

As we depart 2019, here’s all active Wolf players with varsity points to their credit.

That includes sophomores Ja’Kenya Hoskins and Xavier Murdy. Both are injured and yet to see action this season, but have multiple seasons ahead of them.

The cameras are silent now.

Coupeville High School’s girls basketball squads have headed off to winter break, leaving the hardcourt behind for a bit.

Before they left, they waged war with visiting Nooksack Valley Saturday, allowing wanderin’ paparazzi John Fisken to snap the pics seen above.
