Back at it, through rain and sleet and snow.

Coupeville grad Chris Cernick continues to work on fine-tuning his soccer skills, regardless of the weather conditions outside.

Snowpocalypse 2021 has claimed its first victim.

The rapidly-falling white stuff has left Coupeville buried under at least 75 feet of snow as of Saturday morning.

OK, maybe more like eight-plus inches…

Either way, it appears at least one mail truck attempting to exit the Coupeville Post Office parking lot isn’t going anywhere else anytime soon.

Well-played, snow, well-played.

Well, at least you can make plans early … to do nothing.

With more snow coming down Tuesday night, the Coupeville School District opted not to wait until morning, and made the call early to cancel all classes and activities for Wednesday.

That gives students a second-straight snow day, while also ensuring none of us will need to slip ‘n slide to the CHS gym to try and watch basketball.

The Wolf boys basketball teams originally had home games against Cedar Park Christian set for Tuesday.

Those games were bumped until Wednesday, with the hope the weather would improve.

It has not, so the matchups with the Eagles get shoved a little further down the schedule.

They will get played, since they’re league games, but, whether that happens Thursday, or at a later date, is unknown as of Tuesday night.

Mother Nature strikes again.

The 2019-2020 Coupeville High School basketball season continues to be jumbled by weather-related incidents.

After twice being tripped up by wind storms, this time around it’s snow bedeviling the Wolves.

CHS was slated to send its girls squads to Granite Falls Tuesday, while the boys teams were set to welcome Cedar Park Christian to town.

With both of those rival schools closing due to the wintery weather, however, gyms everywhere will remain silent.

The games, which are North Sound Conference rumbles, will be rescheduled and the hope is to do it fast.

The girls games at Granite Falls have been bumped to Thursday.

If weather improves, the Wolf boys will play at home Wednesday.

Those games would be set for 5 PM (JV and C-Team) and 6:45 (varsity).

In a twist, the Wolf C-Team would actually play Sultan in the middle school gym, and not CPC, as that game was already on the schedule for Wednesday.

The C-Team could then possibly pick up the Cedar Park game at a later date, said CHS Athletic Director Willie Smith.

Of course, continued snow and ice could make this all moot.

Friday, all five CHS hoops teams are scheduled to travel to Langley to face South Whidbey.

Temperatures are projected to be in the 40’s Island-wide by then.

With the snow receding, they’re rolling once again.

Saint John’s University baseball, and former Coupeville diamond star Ben Etzell, were slowed by the non-stop white stuff which hammered Minnesota.

After starting the season in Florida and Arizona, once the Johnnies returned home they found nothing but games being backed up, and then backed up some more.

That has begun to change, and SJU is once again playing, running its record to 19-5 after a doubleheader sweep Monday of Hamline University.

Etzell, a senior, tossed a perfect inning, including a pair of strike-outs, to slam the door in the nightcap, a 6-1 win.

He’s tied for the team lead among pitchers with seven appearances and is 1-2 with a 2.35 ERA this season.

For his career, Etzell is 9-4 with seven saves and he crossed the 100-inning barrier against Hamline. He has 84 K’s in 100.2 innings all-time.

Saint John’s has 13 regular-season games left on its schedule and will be playing a ton of doubleheaders over the next two weeks.

The league tourney is scheduled for May 10-13.
