The Coupeville boys track team grabbed five firsts and the girls four in a four-team meet at Granite Falls Thursday, March 25.
While the Wolves snagged their share of firsts, their lack of depth hurt them in the team scoring and both squads finished fourth.

South Whidbey took the girls meet with 83.5, followed by Granite Falls (71), Lakewood (65.5) and Coupeville (38).
