Joey Lippo

He’s got multiple talents.

Coupeville High School grad Joey Lippo is currently a two-sport star at the University of Maine at Presque Isle, playing both golf and baseball for the Owls.

He’s also doing pretty well in the classroom, having been named to the North Atlantic Conference Fall 2022 All-Academic team.

Lippo, who is studying agricultural science and agribusiness, is one of 408 NAC athletes to be honored.

Repping 12 different schools, that group hails from 66 unique teams across seven sports.

To be eligible, an athlete had to notch a GPA between 3.5 and 4.0.

Lippo was honored for golf season, where he played his second campaign at UMPI this past fall.

Now, with spring threatening to show up, he’ll return to the baseball diamond for a third year.

Time to put the clubs away and start thinking about hefting a bat.

Coupeville High School grad Joey Lippo wrapped his second season of collegiate golf Sunday, competing at the North Atlantic Conference Championships.

Husson University, led by medalist Jack King, claimed the team title at the 11-school event.

Lippo, who reps the University of Maine at Presque Isle, finished 46th in the individual race after carding an 87 Saturday and a 98 Sunday at the Waterville Country Club in Oakland, Maine.

The former Wolf, who was an All-Conference baseball player for the Owls last spring, now turns his attention back to the diamond.

Lippo has two seasons of baseball and golf under his belt at UMPI, an NCAA D-III school.

During his time in Coupeville, he was a three-sport star, playing tennis, basketball, and baseball for CHS.
