Through rain and pandemic, the show must go on.

Gone, but not forgotten.

Senior athletes at Coupeville High School, like those all across the state, lost their spring sports seasons when the COVID-19 pandemic shut things down.

Friday night, for 20 minutes and 20 seconds, the Class of 2020 was reminded that their sacrifices are not going unnoticed.

CHS coaches lined the parking lot in front of the elementary school, while keeping proper distance from each other.

Then the lights of the stadium behind them blazed on, lighting up the night from 8:20 to 8:40, as cars drove by amid much honking and some hootin’ and hollerin’.

It was part of a state-wide effort, spurred by the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association and athletic directors.

“Get that money!!” Lincoln Kelley badly wants you to collect that sweet, sweet cash. (Photo by JohnsPhotos.net)

Through three different leagues, John Fisken has been handing financial aid to hard-working Coupeville High School seniors.

The photo whiz kid is offering cash to two graduating student/athletes for a sixth year, so, if you qualify, don’t forget to apply by the April 8 cutoff.

Applications are available in the CHS counseling office.

Requirements for the scholarships:

*Must have participated in at least two sports for all four years of high school.

Cheer counts as a sport, but just one sport. Doing fall and winter cheer doesn’t give you two sports – you would need a second sport to go along with cheer.

*Must have a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA.

*Must NOT be getting any type of athletic scholarship from any college.

*Must submit a 500-word essay, “How Sports Made Me A Better Person.

And a final PS – transfer students who meet the basic requirements, but did not spend all four years at CHS, are eligible.

   Coupeville’s varsity girls, seeking a fourth-straight league title, have no time for your shenanigans.

First-year boys JV coach Chris Smith (back, far left) has a deep bench.

Seniors (l to r) Mikayla Elfrank, Kyla Briscoe and Allison Wenzel hang out.

Ema Smith does not fear your random number generator.

   Wolf hoops legend turned varsity coach Brad Sherman (back, far left) welcomes his first team to the floor.

The Wolf JV girls are a scrappy band of warriors.

   Seniors dominate the boys roster, with (l to r) Joey Lippo, Hunter Downes, Ariah Bepler, Cameron Toomey-Stout, Kyle Rockwell, Hunter Smith and Ethan Spark.

It’s every grandma’s favorite event – picture day.

Wanderin’ photo man John Fisken slid by the Coupeville High School gym recently to snag individual and group shots of every Wolf player in attendance.

Then he was nice enough to slip me a bunch of them.

Along with four team photos, and two collections of seniors, I used a random number generator to pluck two head-shots for use.

That means Ema Smith and Sage Downes beat the odds. So, they got that going for them, which is nice.
