It was a big step forward.

Playing in the middle of a rainstorm Thursday, the Coupeville High School girls soccer team put together its best game of the still-young season.

And while the waterlogged Wolves couldn’t escape Friday Harbor with a win, falling 3-2 on a late goal, their coach came away pleased with much of what he saw.

“A close game, with a nice improvement from our game last weekend,” Kyle Nelson said.

Coupeville, which fell to 0-2 with the non-conference loss, played without leading scorer Genna Wright, who hurt her knee in the season-opener.

Without her electrifying mix of power and finesse, the Wolves found creative ways to score, showcasing other player’s ability to rattle the net with goals.

Coupeville broke through first, with its center-backs teaming up to pull off a sweet score.

Natalie Hollrigel snatched up a loose ball and knocked it off the crossbar, placing it perfectly for teammate Tia Wurzrainer to collect it and bang home the goal.

The score, her first of the season and fifth of her prep career, came on mom Lisa’s birthday.

Friday Harbor battled back to take a 2-1 lead into the halftime break, but the Wolves responded aggressively, coming out of their down-time “with renewed effort.”

Coupeville knotted things up when Avalon Renninger slipped a pass to Sophia Martin, followed by the Wolf sophomore cracking her first goal into the back of the net.

The game looked like it was on its way to be a repeat of one the two teams played last season, when they tied 2-2 on Whidbey, but Friday Harbor found a late goal to eke out the win on its home pitch.

With two games under their collective belts, the Wolves head into the start of league play next week.

CHS will remain on the road, traveling to King’s Tuesday, Sept. 17, then heading off to Sultan two days later.

After that, Coupeville gets four straight games, and six of its next eight, on its own field.

Joining Mayne on the list was freshman Eryn Wood.

Two players, one goal.

Coupeville High School juniors Avalon Renninger and Tia Wurzrainer mesh together fairly flawlessly, making for an ideal doubles unit on the tennis court.

So, it’s only fitting that the dynamic duo closed their season the same way they played it, sharing team MVP honors Monday night as the Wolves handed out awards and letters.

The wonder twins also shared Captain honors, with Wurzrainer tabbed as Most Inspirational.

Sophomore Genna Wright, who held down the #1 singles slot, copped the Coach’s Award from CHS net guru Ken Stange, and three Wolves snagged Most Improved honors.

Abby Mulholland collected “Most Improved Varsity,” Noelle Daigneault was picked as “Most Improved Swing Player” and Cecelia Camarena was named “Most Improved JV Player.”

The Coupeville High School girls tennis season ended Tuesday in rainy Redmond.

Well, actually it came to a close inside the field house at The Overlake School, on a dry court, encircled by basketball hoops and a rock climbing wall.

It was a fairly unusual setting for a tennis match.

Tumbling or wrestling mats were stashed right outside the court, while wayward shots were just begging to dent plaques on the gym wall dedicated to Overlake golfers who’ve made it to state.

By the looks of one row of plaques, which were drooping at odd angles, it seems that’s a challenge readily accepted by PE students.

On this day, the only match going on was a bi-district playoff match-up between Overlake’s Mihika Srinivasan and Kamala Meghji and Coupeville’s Avalon Renninger and Tia Wurzrainer.

While both duos came up with big shots, the Owls, the #3 seed from District 2, defended their “home”court, eventually knocking off the #2 seed from District 1 to the tune of 6-3, 6-2.

Srinivasan and Meghji advance to face the #1 seed from District 2 Saturday in the bi-district semifinals, chasing one of two tickets to the state tournament.

With the loss, Coupeville is done, but their next door neighbors have two teams still alive.

South Whidbey’s Allison Papritz and Mary Zisette, the #1 seed from District 1, are already in the semifinals.

Fellow Falcons Ainsley Nelson and Farriss Jokinen, the D-1 #3, play Wednesday in a loser-out match, trying to advance to spar with their own teammates in the final four.

While their season had ended, Wurzrainer and Renninger had a stellar run during their first go-round as Coupeville’s top doubles unit.

Having inherited the role from Payton Aparicio and Sage Renninger, who finished 4th at state as seniors, Tia and Avalon were team captains, fashioned a winning record and claimed 2nd place at the North Sound Conference tourney.

Only juniors, they are expected to return next spring for a final run under the guidance of long-time CHS net guru Ken Stange.
