Summer Saturdays are made for hoops.

The South Whidbey High School boys basketball program hosted a series of hardwood scrimmages Saturday, with Coupeville winning two of three games.

The Wolves, who brought an eight-man contingent to Langley, rep the smallest school, but played big on the day.

Coupeville, a 2B program, topped 1A schools Sultan and South Whidbey, while falling to 3A hoops legend Mercer Island.

Each game was a 40-minute affair, with two 20-minute halves.

While the wins were nice, the primary reason for all the teams to be in action was the opportunity for continued improvement, as individual players and teams.

“Great Saturday of hoops,” said Coupeville coach Brad Sherman. “Just a great chance to go compete for the day and play hoops, get better.”

Playing for the Wolves were William Davidson, Nick Guay, Alex Murdy, Hawthorne Wolfe, Xavier Murdy, Logan Martin, Cole White, and Logan Downes.

It’s still very much mid-summer, even if the Whidbey weather doesn’t always seem like it.

But, even with that said, it’s only six weeks until the Coupeville High School football squad kicks off the 2016-2017 prep sports season with a Sept. 2 home showdown versus South Whidbey.

Putting in work to get ready, the Wolves faced off with Lakeside in a 7 on 7 scrimmage at Camp Casey Friday night, and wanderin’ paparazzi John Fisken was nice enough to swing by and snap these pics for us.

Soccer never rests.

The calendar says summer, but Coupeville High School players were out on the practice field Monday, putting in off-season work.

With a mix of returning players and young booters who will be freshmen in the fall, the action featured both girls and boys.

Looking for something to do, wanderin’ photo man John Fisken strolled across the prairie to catch the action for us.

Tyler Cermak

Tyler Cermak

Doctors believe Tyler Cermak’s brain tumor is benign and surgery will not be required.

The Coupeville High School sophomore, who has suffered seizures in the past, was discovered to have the tumor when he went in for a checkup after suffering a possible concussion during the spring football scrimmage with Lakeside.

Cermak and his parents met with doctors Wednesday, and he discussed the results on Facebook:

So, got some good news today.

My tumor is most likely benign and is really small compared to others.

The docs don’t think it’ll grow any bigger. I will be having MRI’s over the next few months just to keep eyes on it.

I will be taking medication to control the seizures.

If that medication doesn’t work I’ll take another. If the second doesn’t work than I will have to have surgery.

Unless it grows, It’s not likely I will have surgery.

Cermak plans to remain with the Wolf football team as a manager.
