They started a busy week off with a bang.

The Coupeville High School JV girls’ basketball squad plays three times in four days and kicked off the fun Tuesday by romping past host Concrete 50-12.

The victory lifts the young Wolves to 3-1 in Northwest 2B/1B League play, 6-6 overall.

Up next for Kassie O’Neil’s squad is a road trip to Mount Vernon Thursday for a rematch with that 3A school’s C-Team, then a home game Friday against league rival Friday Harbor.

Coupeville jumped on Concrete quickly, zipping out to a 17-7 lead by the first break.

Eight different Wolves scored in the opening frame, led by Skylar Parker drilling the first of her two three-balls on the evening.

From there, CHS clamped down on defense, holding Concrete scoreless in the second quarter, then limiting their hosts to just five points in the second half.

A 25-7 lead at the half became a 35-9 advantage by the end of the third quarter, with every Wolf on the floor contributing.

Desi Ramirez-Vasquez paced Coupeville with a game-high 12 points, matching Concrete on her own, while Carlota Marcos-Cabrillo poured in nine in support.

Skylar Parker (6), Reese Wilkinson (6), Jada Heaton (6), Madison McMillan (4), Kayla Arnold (2), Teagan Calkins (2), Kierra Thayer (2), and Brynn Parker (1) also scored as the Wolves shared the ball all night.

Road, sweet, road.

The Coupeville High School JV girls’ basketball squad has played some of its best games away from its own gym this season, and Wednesday night was a prime example.

Leading from start to finish, Kassie O’Neil’s band of road warriors held off host La Conner, claiming a solid 28-22 win.

The victory lifts Coupeville’s young guns to 2-0 in Northwest 2B/1B League play, 5-5 overall, heading into another road tussle Friday against Mount Vernon Christian.

Wednesday’s rumble in La Conner was close for a quarter, with the Wolves clinging to a 4-3 lead after a defensive-minded opening eight minutes.

But then O’Neil turned Madison McMillan loose, and CHS made its move.

The Wolf sophomore knocked down seven of her game-high nine points in the second frame, with Teagan Calkins and Bryley Gilbert chipping in as Coupeville busted things open with a 10-5 run.

Teagan Calkins gets scrappy.

Up 14-8 heading into the second half, the Wolves pushed their advantage out to 20-11 by the end of the third, then held on as La Conner rallied late.

McMillan’s nine-point effort led a well-balanced offensive attack, with Desi Ramirez-Vasquez going off for all eight of her points after halftime.

Kierra Thayer banked in four points in support of the duo, with Carlota Marcos-Cabrillo (2), Jada Heaton (2), Calkins (2), and Gilbert (1) rounding out the scorers.

Reese Wilkinson, Brynn Parker, Kayla Arnold, Kassidy Upchurch, Skylar Parker, and Liza Zustiak also saw floor time for the Wolves, who won for the third time on the road this season.

Fear no opponent.

Facing off with 3A Mount Vernon Friday in Oak Harbor, the Coupeville High School JV girls’ basketball squad came within a three-ball of sending the game to overtime.

While the Wolves fell 28-25, Kassie O’Neil’s squad proved they can be competitive with just about anyone.

And they did so without two key players, as Madison McMillan and Jada Heaton remained in Coupeville with the Wolf varsity.

Friday’s fractured schedule was made possible by Darrington not having a JV girls’ team.

So, while Coupeville’s varsity played in front of its home fans, the Wolf JV struck out on their own.

Traipsing 10 miles up the Island, they squared off with Mount Vernon’s C-Team, while the big school’s varsity and JV played host Oak Harbor.

The Wolves, now 4-5 after the non-conference loss, also pick up a second game with the Bulldogs.

The teams square off again Jan. 26, this time in Mount Vernon.

Coupeville’s JV rejoins its varsity counterparts this week, travelling to La Conner Wednesday, Jan. 18 and Mount Vernon Christian two days later.

Cameras clickin’ everywhere.

As I went back through the photos of 2022, I was struck by how many different photographers allowed me to use their work this year.

We’ve had an explosion of Coupeville High School yearbook students putting their photos out into the world, plus Wolf moms everywhere are still the backbone of the franchise.

By the time I was done picking my favorite 20 pics from the year, there were 14 photographers represented, likely the highest total for any of my year-end collections in the decade-plus Coupeville Sports has been around.

To them, I say thank you. This wouldn’t be the same without you.

Action on the floor, action off the floor.

Opening night for Coupeville High School basketball brought four games, plenty of photographers working the sideline, and spirit to spare.
