We rule the dojo.

Five Coupeville taekwondo athletes, including mother/daughter and father/son combos, capped their seasons recently by winning state titles.

Lindsey and Finley Helm brought home a combined four titles, while dad Jerry won an unofficial award for best roadie.

In addition, Ben Shaw and Alan and Cameron Breaux teamed up to toss another seven titles into the pot.

The Coupeville athletes, who work with Armstrong’s ATA Martial Arts, picked up points throughout the season based on how they placed at tournaments.

The season ended April 27 in Eugene, OR.

After not fielding a competition cheer squad since 2011, Coupeville High School got back into the game this winter under first-year coach BreAnna Boon.

And, just like that (after a lot of hard work and several strong performances at meets), the Wolves are bound for the state championships.

The 10-woman team hit the road Friday, heading for Battle Ground, where it will compete in Small Game Day Saturday afternoon.

As one of just four 1A schools to make the cut in the event, CHS is guaranteed to add a new plaque to the school’s Wall of Fame.

However they do on the big stage, theseĀ  Wolves will join the 2006 (state champs), 2007 (2nd place) and 2011 (4th place) Coupeville cheer squads up on the wall in the gym.

Loud, proud and state bound.
