“I’m still … The King,” whispers Kyle.

Welcome to the club.

Enjoying the first state track and field meet in three springs after a pandemic shutdown, Coupeville High School athletes got back to doing what they do.

Bringing home medals.

Six Wolves earned their first chunk of state meet glory Friday and Saturday in Cheney, with Dominic Coffman, Reiley Araceley, Ryanne Knoblich, Caleb Meyer, Aidan Wilson, and Logan Martin stepping onto the awards podium.

That brings the CHS state meet medal club to 77 athletes all-time, with those track stars accounting for 187 awards.

From that club, Kyle King has the most state titles, edging Natasha Bamberger 5-4, though the latter also owns a cross country crown.

But Kyle’s younger brother, Tyler, is tops in total medals, and the duo, joined by sister Brianne, are one of three Wolf families to produce three medal winners.

The Hoskins sisters (Jai’Lysa, Ja’Tarya, Ja’Kenya) and the Toomey-Stouts (Cameron, Maya, Sean) are the others, while the Martin (Dalton, Logan) and Hack (Joy, Kevin) families also have sibling winners.

The Fords (Jordan and Uncle Tony) and Roberts (Lindsey and Uncle Jay) are also in the game, with the Beplers (Ariah and dad Mark) the only time a CHS medal winner has sired a future medal winner.

So far.

Our final connection is Yashmeen Knox and Rich Wilson, who both still own school records in the high jump 20+ years after graduation.

They’re the only Wolf duo to win state meet medals, then later marry.

So far.

They’re chasing history, one race at a time.

When a new track and field season starts a week from today, six Wolves will step into the first day of practice having already won at least one medal at the state meet.

Five of those CHS athletes are seniors, with one a sophomore.

Leading the pack of potential returnees is Mallory Kortuem, who’s snagged four medals, including a 2nd in the 400 last season.

Earn some more hardware in Cheney this May, and the quicksilver sprinter/relay ace can finish her prep career as one of the most-decorated CHS female athletes ever.

Tied with Sylvia Hurlburt and Lauren Grove currently, Kortuem is hot on the heels of Yashmeen Knox (five medals), Natasha Bamberger (6), Makana Stone (7), and Lindsey Roberts (8).

Should she finish atop the podium at the state meet — Alma Manzo of Conell, who nipped her in the 400, has graduated — and Kortuem would exit with an even-bigger moment.

There have been nine state champs from CHS, but only two female winners.

Bamberger won four track titles and a cross country crown in the ’80s, with Amy Mouw claiming the 800 title in 2003.

While Kortuem is on the cusp of immortality, she has some company, with fellow seniors Maya Toomey-Stout and Jean Lund-Olsen entering their final campaign having already collected three state meet medals apiece.

Wolf 12th graders Sean Toomey-Stout (2) and Ja’Tarya Hoskins (1), and 10th grader Ja’Kenya Hoskins (1) also boast shiny hardware of their own.

As a new track and field season comes hurtling towards Wolf fans, athletes, and coaches, a look at the all-time CHS state meet medal count, covering the modern era of 1963-2019:
