Wolves sweep by Concrete
The Coupeville girls basketball team used another strong first half performance to pick up a 63-43 victory over the Concrete Lions on Tuesday night.
The Wolves jumped out to a 19-6 first quarter lead and led 35-17 at the half, on the way to winning their second Northwest A League game in as many tries.
Junior Brianne King paced the Wolves with 22 points, including four three-pointers as the team upped its overall record to 10-1. Coupeville faced Orcas Island on Friday night in another league contest (results will be published in next Wednesdays edition of the News-Times) and travels to LaConner on Tuesday.
The Coupeville boys squad received a scare from the Lions but was able to earn a 68-60 victory after a fourth-quarter rally. The Wolves trailed the winless Lions 55-50 in the fourth quarter before moving ahead. Concrete was forced to foul, but the Wolves sank their free throws to record a second straight league win.
Coupeville faced Orcas Island yesterday in an early season battle for first place in the Northwest A League. Tonight they travel to Granite Falls to face the Tigers in a non-conference contest.

win a pair
The Wildcat wrestlers knocked the Stanwood Spartans out of the unbeaten ranks with a 36-23 victory in their dual meet on Thursday night.
A key win came when Chris Whiteman earned a come-from-behind decision 10-7 in the 215-pound weight class.
Conditioning helped Chris in that match, said Wildcats head coach Brian Farmer. He had lost to him at the Sedro-Woolley tournament and working on his conditioning paid off. It was an important win.
Senior Sean Hogan (275 pounds) picked up the lone pin in the meet for the Wildcats, sticking his Spartan opponent at the 1:20 mark in the first round.
Earlier in the week Oak Harbor earned a 35-24 dual meet victory in Mount Vernon. Leading the way against the Spartans were Whiteman, Ryan Lange (160 pounds), and Patrick OBrien (171 pounds) who all picked up pins against the Bulldogs. Rory Magana (103 pounds) and Kevin Lang (112 pounds) both earned technical pins.
Their were close matches all the way, said Farmer about the meet.
Today the Wildcats travel east of the mountains to take part in the Ellensburg Tournament.
