It was the biggest Senior Night, maybe in forever.

When Coupeville High School boys basketball coaches hailed their veterans Friday, before they faced Granite Falls in their final regular-season home game, they had quite the list to get through.

With 11 seniors on the roster, the Wolves will only return two varsity players next season.

Coupeville’s grizzled vets went out with a win, punching their ticket to the playoffs (and a possible postseason home game), and we have pics of them all.

Well, sort of, as I can’t find one for Koa Davison, so we’ve substituted a pre-season portrait of him doing his best Derek Zoolander.

Living legends Hunter Smith and Payton Aparicio return to the gym where they set records.

Gavin Knoblich will not be denied.

Can you feel the love?

The night was alive with the sound of squeaking shoes and bouncing basketballs.

Drawn in by the noise, wanderin’ paparazzi John Fisken visited the CHS gym Tuesday, arriving in time to click pics of both the Wolf JV and varsity in action.

The photos above are courtesy him, but are just a small fraction of what he snapped.

To see everything Fisken shot, and possibly purchase a glossie or two for Gram and Gramps, pop over to:

Coupeville boys basketball, which boasts nine players who will be seniors this coming season, went 5-0 this weekend, winning the Crescent Classic. (Mindy Grove photo)

Right now, at this moment in time, they’re undefeated.

The high school boys basketball season is still months and months away, but that’s not stopping Coupeville from getting after it.

Prepping for an upcoming team camp, the Wolves traveled off-Island this weekend, and returned home as Crescent Classic champs.

Coupeville, facing off with Chimacum, Forks, and the host team, went 5-0 to nab the title.

Having traveled 154.8 miles round-trip to Crescent, the Wolves earned a win for every 31 miles.

CHS coach Brad Sherman had his full team at his disposal, with all nine returning full-time varsity players in attendance.

That group includes Jacobi Pilgrim, Jered Brown, Hawthorne Wolfe, Jean Lund-Olsen, Gavin Knoblich, Ulrik Wells, Mason Grove, Koa Davison, and Sean Toomey-Stout.

Also along for the trip were Daniel Olson and Xavier Murdy, who were swing players during the 2018-2019 season, and Tucker Hall.

After a season in which Coupeville had just one senior, the now-graduated Dane Lucero, the Wolves could boast nine 12th graders this winter.

The only underclassmen in the current varsity group are Olson, who will be a junior, and Wolfe and Murdy, who will be sophomores.

Their coach came away from the trip pleased with the results, and, more importantly, thrilled with the effort he saw from his players.

“Was a good opportunity for our guys to get out and play before camp,” Sherman said. “Good team basketball; really great team effort.”

Just a few years can radically change people.

That’s evident in today’s Throwback Thursday peek back into the history of Coupeville boys basketball.

It features the guys who will be the seniors next year, anchoring the 2019-2020 edition of the Wolf varsity hoops team.

Seven of the 12 players in this photo, which was shot in Nov., 2014, were still with the program during the basketball season which still ended.

The lineup (with active players in bold):

Back row (l to r):

Aiden Juras, Elliott Johnson, Jean Lund-Olsen, Sean Toomey-Stout, Jered Brown, Dawson Houston.

Wolf big man Ulrik Wells jabs towards the hoop, on his way to slapping home another bucket. (Photos by JohnsPhotos.net)

Abby Mulholland: “You have one job, Mr. Ball. Get in the hoop and maybe I’ll take you out for ice cream afterwards.”

Carl Henri Chapman gets sandwiched by Wolf defenders Logan Martin (15) and Sage Downes.

Mollie Bailey: “I said I’ll pass you the dang ball when you get open … and not before!”

Sean Toomey-Stout seemingly swoops high enough to touch the speakers.

Just like her big brother, Izzy Wells is a bucket-scoring beast.

So close.

With four Coupeville High School basketball teams playing at home Friday, photographer John Fisken netted shots of two-thirds of one of Wolf Nation’s brightest trios of athletes.

Big bro Ulrik Wells and middle sister Izzy can both be seen above, providing perfect end caps to our lil’ photo essay.

That leaves us just missing the supernova herself, younger sister Savina, who was busy cartwheeling through the stands while counting down the days until she can join her siblings in a CHS uniform.

So, something for Fisken to add to his bucket list – snap all three Wells hoops stars in the same day.

Dream big, I say.

Anyway, to see everything else he shot, even those of the non-Wells variety, pop over to:
