The seniors will lead the way.

Coming off of a busy Saturday which saw two practices, and a team run at Ebey’s Landing, the Coupeville High School football team has released a hype poster for the new season.

Doubling as a schedule for Wolf fans, it was shot by photographer Thomas Ford and stars CHS seniors.

“That’s something I’d like to do every year for the graduating class,” said Coupeville head coach Bennett Richter.

“I thought it came out pretty awesome.

“Hopefully we can get the word out and get some people to come out and watch a very exciting Coupeville team!”

Just a fraction of the high achievers in the Coupeville Class of 2023.

It could be legendary.

Coupeville High School’s Class of 2023 is currently projecting 93 graduates for next spring, which would be double the average size of recent years.

Before they get to the moment when they walk across the stage at Micky Clark Field to accept their diplomas, Wolf seniors will be at the forefront of athletics and academics at the school this coming year.

In preparation for grad week festivities, Coupeville parents are hard at work raising money to celebrate their students’ accomplishments.

Race the Reserve goes down in August, concession sales will be open at volleyball, football, basketball, and track events during the 2022-2023 school year, and the class has launched a GoFundMe.

Money raised goes to fund a drug and alcohol-free graduation night celebration for the Class of 2023.


To donate to the cause (and get a warm, fuzzy glow in your chest), pop over to:

We’re (slightly) in limbo.

The Coupeville High School basketball squads are off until this weekend, when they play back-to-back games Friday and Saturday.

The first of those is at home against Darrington, the second on the road at Orcas Island.

While the Wolves work in practice, and their fans wait for games, some pics to help pass the time.

Abby Mulholland gets rowdy.

Ryan Blouin freezes time.

On the floor they’re dead serious. Off the court, not as much.

Can’t tell the graduates without a scorecard.

So here you go, ready to be laminated — the Coupeville High School Class of 2021.

Every name matters, but one stands above them all for me.

Aria Bowen is the final reminder of my 12-year run behind the counter at Videoville from 1994-2006.

The same counter where a lil’ Aria took naps in her carrier while I jabbered about movies, her older sister Mekare built modern art sculptures back at the block table, and their mom, Dea, served up Miriam’s Espresso drinks.

So she gets three photos and a lot of the rest of you grads-to-be maybe don’t get one in this story.

You’ll survive, and still graduate.

Then you can go build a time machine, travel back to when Videoville rented 500 VHS tapes on a Friday night in Cow Town, and plop your own baby tush on our counter.

And, having bent time and space, you can act all surprised when, magically, it’s suddenly you getting three photos in a 2021 graduation story.

Simple really.

Until then, Aria (and a bunch of people not named Aria) form the CHS Class of 2021:

“Money, free MONEY!!!!! Come and get it!!!!” (Photo by JohnsPhotos.net)

Don’t pass up virtually free money.

With just a little work, Coupeville High School seniors can snag a variety of college scholarships and workforce grants, and the competition for some awards remains wide open.

The Senior Parent Board is extending their application deadline until next Friday, May 14 at 2:45 PM.

Applications and essays can be dropped off with Eileen Stone in the CHS office.

First though, take a gander at the photos below for all the pertinent info.

The three scholarships are available to any Wolf planning to attend a two-year, four-year, technical, or vocational school, with the grant aimed at someone going straight to work.

All bring a crisp $500, with just a smidge of work required to be eligible.

Don’t leave money on the table.
