Breaking a seven-year playoff drought brought big post-season rewards to the Coupeville football team.

CHS had nine athletes named Northwest A/B all-league at 13 different positions.

“I’m just really happy for the seniors, especially after what they’ve gone through the past few years,” CHS head coach Ron Bagby said. “It’s just really nice to have other teams’ coaches recognize these guys.”

Leading the all-league list were seniors Mike Bagby and J.J. Marti. Both players were named first team defense and offense.
