They’re still running.

While Coupeville Middle School students aren’t competing against other schools during this pandemic-shortened athletic year, they’re still getting a chance to stay active.

CMS Athletic Director Willie Smith, in tandem with his coaches, has arranged for intramural activities, keeping the Wolves in stride.

Cross country has a booming program, pandemic or not, and coach Elizabeth Bitting is putting on a four-race campaign.

Race #3 went down Thursday, and photo bugs Jackie Saia and Teagan Calkins were on hand to capture pics for us.

The portraits are by mom, the action shots by Teagan, a very-talented athlete in her own right.

Everyone ran down to South Whidbey.

From the Coupeville Middle School harriers, who closed out their season Wednesday at the Cascade League Championships, to photographer John Fisken, Langley was the place to be.

The pics seen above are a mix of Wolf girls and boys at work, but there’s a lot more to see.

Weather? What weather?

Running through sideways rain in Granite Falls Thursday, the Coupeville Middle School cross country team kicked off October in style.

The Wolves were decked out in pink wrist bands (and some freshly-dyed pink hair for Gabe Reed) in honor of the first race during Breast Cancer Awareness month, then attacked the course at the Granite Gallop.

With several runners making their season debut, the Wolves were at full force, with 6th grader Teagan Calkins and 8th grader Cole White notching the top times for the CMS girls and boys, respectively.

“Bang went the gun and off the runners went along with a DOWNPOUR!!!,” said Coupeville coach Elizabeth Bitting. “It was a wet, wet, race!!!!

“These runners didn’t let Mother Nature rain on the parade … well, race!,” she added. “They went out with a vengeance and finished strong!!”

“We’re going to score all the runs. All of them, I said!!” (Susan Farris photo)


Continuing to chew its way through the schedule, the Central Whidbey Little League Majors softball squad crushed host South Whidbey 25-4 Monday.

The win lifts the Hammerheads to a flawless 7-0, while improving their run differential on the season to an eye-popping 145-32.

Kicking off a busy week – Central has five games in six days – Monday’s game was the second-straight to feature Allison Nastali in the pitcher’s circle.

Giving staff ace Chloe Marzocca a bit of rest time, Nastali was on point, whiffing five across four innings of work.

Her team’s offense, after a (relatively) slow start, was its usual marauding self.

After putting up three runs apiece in each of the first three innings, Central Whidbey erupted for 16 runs on 13 hits in the game-ending fourth frame.

For the game, the Hammerheads bashed out 22 hits, led by Jada Heaton’s career-best five base-knocks.

Teagan Calkins backed her up with four hits, including a hard line-drive double, while Mia Farris, Madison McMillan, and Brionna Blouin delivered three hits apiece.

McMillan had the biggest extra-base hit of the game, singing the South Whidbey defense for a triple during the game’s big uprising.

Taylor Brotemarkle and Nastali rounded out the hit parade, slashing two base-knocks each, while Katie Marti (3), Aleksia Jump (3), and Mayleen Weatherford (1) combined to net seven of their team’s 25 runs.

Blouin (4) and Nastali (3) topped the team in RBI’s, with “Katie and Taylor playing great in the middle of the infield,” according to Hammerheads coach Fred Farris.

Marzocca, who has been battling a bit of tendinitis, got the night off, and is expected to be ready and rarin’ to go for Central’s next game, Tuesday at North Whidbey.

The Hammerheads are out for blood.

Thumping teams everywhere they play, the Central Whidbey Little League Minors softball squad is leaving a trail of mauled foes in their wake.

The latest to fall was NW White, which was blown out 18-6 at Volunteer Park in Oak Harbor in a game which “wasn’t as close as the score.”

The Hammerheads split pitching duties between Chloe Marzocca, Mia Farris and Taylor Brotemarkle, who put a final stamp on the game by whiffing all three batters she faced.

“The team was very clean in the field and on the bases,” said CWLL coach Fred Farris. “Everyone contributed.”

Central racked up six hits, with Madison McMillan leading the way with two base-knocks.

Mia Farris, Jada Heaton, Katie Marti and Mayleen Weatherford each added a hit, with Marti and Farris collecting two RBI apiece.

Brotemarkle walked three times, McMillan pilfered three stolen bases and Teagan Calkins filled up the stat sheet with three runs, three steals and two walks (both times being plunked by pitches).

The Hammerheads got something from everyone, with Naosha Rose, Sydney Wallace, Brooke Van Velkinburgh and Hayden Daniel all scoring.
