Every 0.01 counts.

As the track and field season begins to wind down, the top 10 lists for 1A seem to change every hour, much less every day.

One person moves up two slots, then crashes down five rungs later in the day as meets from across the state report.

Ultimately, the only placements which truly matter will be those on the big board at the end of the state meet in Cheney in May, but it’s interesting to watch things develop right now.

Coupeville High School has one regular season meet left, this coming Thursday at South Whidbey, then heads to the postseason, with the North Sound Conference championships up first.

As we gaze at the ever-changing lists this morning, the Wolves have one athlete sitting at #1, and it’s senior Danny Conlisk in the 200.

He was also #1 in the 400 Saturday, for about 12 minutes, but now sits 0.02 behind an arch-rival from Elma he has yet to face.

And the battle rages on.


CHS athletes in the Top 10 of 1A (through 11:45 AM Apr. 21):



400 — Mallory Kortuem (5th) 1:00.65

100 Hurdles — Lindsey Roberts (5th) 16.06

4 x 100 Relay — Maya Toomey-Stout, Ja’Tarya Hoskins, Kortuem, Roberts (7th) 52.35

4 x 200 Relay — Roberts, Ja’Kenya Hoskins, Kortuem, M. Toomey-Stout (8th) 1:50.68



100 — Jean Lund-Olsen (3rd) 11.31

200 — Danny Conlisk (1st) 22.55; Lund-Olsen (3rd) 22.96

400 — Conlisk (2nd) 50.16

4 x 100 Relay — Lund-Olsen, Tiger Johnson, Sean Toomey-Stout, Conlisk (10th) 45.30

One meet is all it takes.

Competing in the 4 x 400 relay for the first time this season Saturday, the Coupeville High School girls track squad threw down the gauntlet.

A unit comprised of senior Lindsey Roberts and juniors Lucy Sandahl, Mallory Kortuem, and Maya Toomey-Stout roared to a 3rd place finish while running against 4A, 3A, and 2A schools at the Lil’ Norway Invitational.

Even before they had a chance to collect their ribbons, the blazing finish vaulted the Wolves relay team into the top 10 among all 1A schools this season.

So now, with two regular-season meets left to run, the CHS girls sit among the elite in all three relay events, and that’s just the start for Coupeville.

Danny Conlisk (400) and Jean Lund-Olsen (200) remain the #1 seeds in their respective events, while 10 Wolves are in the top 10 at least once.

Sean Toomey-Stout is ready to launch.

Now, it’s time for an encore.

Coming off a 5th place finish in the team standings at last year’s state championships, the Coupeville High School boys track and field squad is back for more.

But while last spring played out to perfection, as the Wolves also won league and district titles, the lineup will look a little different this time out.

The biggest loss is Jacob Smith, who became just the second athlete in school history to win four competitive medals at a single state meet.

His running mate, Danny Conlisk, is at the front of the pack when you look at returning runners.

He enters his senior track season having already claimed three state medals, including a 2nd place finish in the 400 last season.

Joining Conlisk are juniors Sean Toomey-Stout, who medaled in the 4 x 100 and 4 x 400 relays last season, and Jean Lund-Olsen, who medaled in the 4 x 100.

Senior throwers Ryan Labrador (shot put) and Chris Battaglia (discus) also competed at the state meet as juniors.

Other Wolves to keep an eye on include Keahi Sorrows, Kyle Burnett, Koa Davison, Jakobi Baumann, Thane Peterson, Chris Ruck, Jaschon Baumann, and Tiger Johnson.

Freshmen Brian Casey and Logan Martin could have an impact as well, with Martin already among the team leaders in the discus.

Coupeville coach Randy King, entering his 14th year with the track program, likes what he sees.

“This first week they have proven to be a fun group with good leadership and a great positive vibe,” he said.

Coupeville’s biggest strength could be its sprinters, led by Conlisk and Sean Toomey-Stout, with King hard at work trying to find the right mix with the relay teams after losing Smith and Cameron Toomey-Stout.

“Probably our most talented group is our sprint group,” King said. “It will be a challenge to find that fourth member for our relays, and we look forward to figuring out if we will have a team with a good chance of state-qualifying in the 4 x 1 or 4 x 4.”

Labrador leads the throwers, with Sorrows pushing him hard in the shot put, while Battaglia and Toomey-Stout both topped 130 feet in the javelin a season ago.

Battaglia, who went to state in the high jump as a freshman, leads a group trying to step up and replace two-time state meet participant Ariah Bepler in the event.

Logan Martin and Davison are both in the mix in the high jump, while Toomey-Stout and Lund-Olsen are at the forefront in the long jump and triple jump.

Jakobi Baumann, a sub-district champ in the 100 hurdles last season, will be clearing the obstacles again, with Peterson and Burnett sailing through the air in the pole vault.

Track opens its season Mar. 14 at the Oak Harbor Jamboree, and Coupeville hosts three meets this season, its most in years.

Immediate impact.

From the moment they made their varsity basketball debuts this season, junior Sean Toomey-Stout and freshman Hawthorne Wolfe were at the core of everything the Coupeville High School boys basketball squad accomplished.

Leading a young team building for the future, the duo impressed North Sound Conference coaches, picking up votes in postseason voting and earning Honorable Mention status when the league recently named its All-Conference teams.

Toomey-Stout, bouncing back after missing his sophomore basketball season thanks to a football injury, added the team varsity MVP award Wednesday, when CHS held its season-ending banquet.

“The Torpedo” led the Wolves in steals, assists, points in the paint, and offensive rebounds, while finishing second in defensive boards and scoring.

The night’s other big awards went to the team’s two seniors, post player Dane Lucero and team manager Ryan Labrador.

Lucero capped a two-year run on the hardwood by nabbing the varsity Wolf Pack Award, which honors a player who showcases “leadership, character, attitude, effort, and commitment.”

Dane exemplifies all of these and more,” said CHS coach Brad Sherman. “Very deserving of being recognized for his level of leadership and class in everything he does.”

Labrador received the Program Distinguished Service Award.

Ryan works extremely hard to support those around him, never asks for anything in return, and does it with a smile on his face,” Sherman said. “That’s just who he is and we were very lucky to have him this year.”

As a program, Coupeville also received a pair of awards from the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association, with both the varsity and JV earning Distinguished Scholastic Awards.

The JV put together a cumulative GPA of 3.292, while the Wolf varsity finished at 3.185.

Toomey-Stout’s fan section, ready to rock the gym.

One more time in the gym.

With an unexpected tie-breaker game popping up on the schedule, high school basketball fans got to spend one more evening on the hardest bleachers in the world.

Along for the ride, though not sitting on the butt-bustin’ bleachers, was ever-busy paparazzi John Fisken, who delivers the pics seen above.

To see everything he snapped, and perhaps purchase some glossies for posterity, pop over to:


And, when you go wanderin’ among the pix, keep in mind that any purchases help fund scholarships for CHS senior student/athletes.

So, there’s that.
