Time to hit the road.

Coupeville High School track and field athletes and coaches rumbled out of town Thursday morning at the crack of dawn, headed for Yakima.

The 2B state championships await them, with the Wolves slated to start three days of competition a few hours after arrival on the East side of the state.

Monroe Myles (100), Carolyn Lhamon (shot put), and Aidan Wilson (triple jump) are up first, with the main flurry of action set to kick off Friday morning.

As the Wolves got ready for their bus trip, pics were snapped, and cheers were unleashed.

On to glory!

Back on top, in the blink of an eye.

After not fielding a competition cheer squad since 2011, Coupeville High School got back into the game this winter under first-year coach BreAnna Boon.

And, just like that (after a lot of hard work and several strong performances at meets), the Wolves are bound for the state championships.

The 10-woman team hit the road Friday, heading for Battle Ground, where it will compete in Small Game Day Saturday afternoon.

As one of just four 1A schools to make the cut in the event, CHS is guaranteed to add a new plaque to the school’s Wall of Fame.

However they do on the big stage, theseĀ  Wolves will join the 2006 (state champs), 2007 (2nd place) and 2011 (4th place) Coupeville cheer squads up on the wall in the gym.

Loud, proud and state bound.
