Klahowya tops Coupeville, moves into 2nd / Boys basketball

The Klahowya Secondary School boys basketball team steadily pulled away from Coupeville in a 51-37 win over the Wolves Tuesday, Jan. 16, in Silverdale.

It was a key win for the Eagles (3-1, 7-7), who jumped ahead of Coupeville (2-2, 4-10) into second place in the Olympic League standings. The top two teams advance to the postseason. Port Townsend (4-1, 8-6) currently sits in first.

The Wolves and Eagles meet again at 3:45 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 20, at Klahowya. Before that contest, Coupeville hosts Chimacum (0-5, 0-9) at 5:15 p.m. Friday, Jan. 19. At that game, the Wolves will celebrate 101 years of basketball.

Coupeville played its first game, a 29-7 win over Langley, on Jan. 19, 1917.

All former players and coaches are invited to attend the celebration Friday, which will feature the school’s top-15 all-time scorers and the school’s most successful team, the club from 1969-70.
