The season has begun, in a hail of spikes, sets and hours spent on a bus.

The Coupeville Middle School volleyball squads rambled down to Sequim Wednesday, where they put up a strong fight before falling to a much-bigger rival.

Their hosts feed a 2A high school, something the Wolves, who will one day play for a tiny 1A high school, will face often this year.

Even without the advantage of numbers, and with their legs possibly affected by bus lag, the Wolves were scrappers.

The 8th grade squad won the first set 25-23, before being nipped in sets two and three, while the CMS 7th graders lost in straight sets.

Both teams had at least one player go off on long, successful runs at the service stripe, as well.

Lucy Tenore opened the 7th grade match with a run of eight straight points, while Kylie Van Velkinburgh had a similar streak during the 8th grade clash.

After another road trip Monday, Sept. 25 — this one a much-shorter jump over to Port Townsend — CMS makes its home debut Thursday, Sept. 28 against Stevens.

After this, everything counts.

The Coupeville Middle School football team got the butterflies out Saturday, traveling to Sequim for a season-opening jamboree.

Next up on the schedule is the first official game, which arrives next Thursday, Sept. 21.

It’s a home game, the opponent is Chimacum, and kickoff is set for 3:45 PM.

Don’t sleep on Ema Smith.

The Coupeville High School junior is normally a role player for the girls soccer squad, but she has a dangerous goal-scoring toe or two at her disposal, as she showed Thursday night.

Smith notched her first score of the season, beating the Sequim goaltender (with a little assist from a rival player’s head), the only Wolf to do so in a 4-1 loss.

The non-conference defeat, coming on the road against a large 2A school, snaps a two-game win streak for CHS and drops it to 2-2 on the season.

While the final score didn’t come out in favor of his squad, Wolf coach Kyle Nelson saw genuine positives in his team’s performance.

“It was a closer game than the score shows,” he said. “It is also a good game for us against a good opponent to show us the things we need to work on.

“We will use this to get better.”

Coupeville, which is tied with Klahowya for the early lead atop the 1A Olympic League, has a key game coming up on Saturday.

The Wolves (1-0 in league play) travel to Port Townsend for a 1:15 game.

That match-up with the RedHawks closes out a three-game road trip for Coupeville.

After that game, CHS won’t have to play more than one road game in a row the remainder of the regular season.

Are they training killer bees in Sequim and then sending them to Whidbey?!

I’m not saying it did happen, just that it could have happened…

Missing #1 singles ace Nick Etzell, who was recovering from an allergic reaction to a nasty bee sting on his playing hand, the Coupeville High School boys tennis squad still came dangerously close to toppling 2A Sequim.

After a back-and-forth match Monday in which four of the seven varsity tilts went to a third set, the Wolves fell 4-3 on the road.

The non-conference loss drops Coupeville to 0-2 as it begins a new season with a brutal opening schedule.

The Wolves, repping one of the smallest 1A schools in the state, play their first three matches against large 2A schools.

With identical 4-3 losses to Port Angeles and Sequim under its belt, Coupeville welcomes Kingston to Whidbey Wednesday afternoon. Play begins at 3:15.

Facing off with Sequim, the Wolves won two of the four three-set matches.

Nile Lockwood and Zach Ginnings pulled off a win at #3 doubles which required going all the way to a third-set tiebreaker, while Joey Lippo and William Nelson rallied in the final moments for their win at #1 doubles.

The senior duo fell behind 3-0 in the third set, before winning six of the final seven games to escape and stay unbeaten this season.

Ginnings is also 2-0 in 2017, having won two matches with different partners, while #3 singles player Mason Grove is the only Wolf to have won both of his matches this season in straight sets.

1st Singles — Pedro Gamarra lost to Raymond Lam 6-7(3-7), 6-3, 7-5
