It was quite the week.

The Coupeville High School varsity volleyball squad pulled off one of the great comebacks in program history to topple Orcas Island in five nail-biting sets.

Meanwhile, Wolf girls soccer, football, and boys soccer all won as well, with the male booters stunning state title contender Friday Harbor and their female counterparts netting their first victory of the season.

The week ahead is fairly light, schedule-wise, but builds to a big finale with Homecoming.

That game is set for Friday, Sept. 30 and pits Coupeville and Friday Harbor in a battle for sole possession of first place in the Northwest 2B/1B League.

Cross country (Wednesday at Orcas), volleyball (Thursday at La Conner), and boys soccer (Tuesday at home against Orcas) also have just one event apiece, while girls soccer plays twice.

The female booters host Mount Vernon Christian Tuesday, before travelling Thursday to La Conner.

As we head towards the final days of the month, a look at standings through Sept. 24:

They’re off to see the world.

Coupeville High School athletic teams will spend some time on buses and ferries this coming week, with seven of nine events on the road.

All five fall Wolf squads have at least one meet, match, or game away from Whidbey, with only volleyball and boys soccer getting to play in front of their home fans.

The CHS spikers have the busiest schedule, playing three times, with road matches Tuesday at Darrington and Saturday at Forks packaged around a home clash Thursday with Orcas Island.

Meanwhile, Wolf cross country is off to Orcas Wednesday and Shoreline Saturday for the King’s Invite, while football travels to La Conner for Friday Night Lights.

Rounding out things, the booters hit the pitch, with the boys team traveling to La Conner Tuesday before playing at home Friday against Friday Harbor.

Coupeville’s girls soccer squad is off until Saturday, when it treks out to Forks for a non-league clash.

No games for you.

Tuesday is the first day of classes for Coupeville High School students, and home games for Wolf girls soccer, volleyball, and boys soccer were on the schedule.

That shifted Monday, as Auburn Adventist Academy cancelled its planned trip to Whidbey Island.

The news pushes back season-openers for volleyball and girls soccer to Thursday, Sept. 8.

The Wolf spikers host Friday Harbor, while the booters go island-hopping to face the same school.

Of the three CHS teams affected by Tuesday’s cancellations, the one which has the longest gap in its schedule is boys soccer.

That squad is now set to open its season Sept. 13 on the road at Mount Vernon Christian.

No reason was given publicly for the Auburn Adventist cancellations, and it remains unclear if the non-conference bouts will be made up.

“I may or may not reschedule depending on our schedule availability,” said Coupeville Athletic Director Willie Smith.
