Joey Lippo

It’s the cherry on top of the sundae.

Coupeville grad Joey Lippo was honored Thursday, named as a First-Team All-League pick when North Atlantic Conference baseball coaches picked their all-stars.

Lippo, a sophomore at the University of Maine at Presque Isle, was honored for his play in the outfield, and was one of two Owls tabbed.

Junior first-baseman Timothy Burns was also a First-Team pick.

Lippo started all 35 games for UMPI this season, and led the Owls in at-bats (123), runs (31), triples (2), RBI (22), walks (14), and stolen bases (8).

Skyy Lippo’s twin brother was second on his squad in hits (39), batting average (.317), on-base percentage (.386) and home runs (1).

All the awards will be hers.

Coupeville grad Sarah Wright continues to haul in accolades, with her most-recent accomplishment being named as an All-Conference college softball player.

The former Wolf supernova, now a junior at Sewanee: The University of the South, was tabbed as a Second-Team pick by Southern Athletic Association coaches last week.

Tiger teammates Alice Charboneau and Zoe Crockett earned Honorable Mention.

The All-Conference teams were based on play against other SAA teams, and Wright racked up 10 RBI in 13 league games.

She had 11 hits in conference action, with a pair of doubles and a home run which still hasn’t come back down to Earth.

Wright, whose first two college softball seasons were disrupted by the pandemic, was one of three Tigers to start all 33 games this year.

She led Sewanee in at-bats (102), runs (15), and home runs (2), while finishing second in RBI (17), and third in hits (25), total bases (35), and doubles (4).

The former Coupeville Valedictorian is majoring in politics and has made both the SAA Academic Honor Roll and All-Sportsmanship team during her time in Tennessee.

The Splash Sisters are back at it.

Coupeville’s Sophie and Lucy Sandahl shone brightly this weekend, helping Seattle Pacific University rowing teams to strong finishes at a major meet.

The duo was at Lake Natoma in Gold River, California for the Western Intercollegiate Rowing Association Championships.

Sophie was in the bow of her boat as SPU’s #2 varsity eight crew won their grand finals race Sunday, fending off runner-up Pacific Lutheran University by a crisp 22 seconds.

The Falcons crossed the 2,000-meter course in seven minutes, 29.62 seconds.

Meanwhile, lil’ sis Lucy was the coxswain for SPU’s novice four boat, which claimed second in Saturday’s heats — on dad Michael’s birthday.

Her first-year crew, repping an NCAA D-II school, then went oar to oar with top-level D-1 schools Sunday, finishing sixth in the grand finals.

SPU returns to action next Saturday, May 7, when it participates in the Windermere Cup on the Montlake Cut in Seattle.

That event is hosted by the University of Washington and celebrates the opening of boating season in our state.

Joey Lippo

The bat gets a rest.

After swinging a hot stick all season, Coupeville grad Joey Lippo officially reached the end of his sophomore season playing baseball at the University of Maine at Presque Isle.

The Owls dropped a pair of doubleheaders over the weekend, falling to Thomas College 15-3 and 4-3 Saturday, before succumbing 12-2 and 4-1 Sunday to New England College.

UMPI finishes 6-29, which is a bump in games played and games won from last year’s pandemic-altered 1-17 campaign.

Lippo went out lashing, picking up four hits and three RBI in his final weekend of play.

The former Wolf three-sport star was one of just two Owls to play in all 35 games, and he led UMPI in at-bats (123), runs (31), triples (2), RBI (22), walks (14), and stolen bases (8).

Skyy Lippo’s twin brother was second on his squad in hits (39), batting average (.317), on-base percentage (.386) and home runs (1).

Joey played most of the season in the outfield, gunning down runners with long throws from the shadows, but he also pitched in three games for the Owls, striking out four across five innings of work.

Sarah Wright

Season three is in the books.

Coupeville grad Sarah Wright played the final softball game of her junior campaign Saturday, as Sewanee: The University of the South was eliminated from postseason play.

The former Wolf smacked one of her team’s two hits, but the Tigers fell 4-0 to Centre College.

That, combined with a 3-2 defeat to Millsaps College Friday sends Sewanee home from the double-elimination Southern Athletic Association tournament.

Wright and Co. finished 7-26 on the season, but the 33 games were more than the Tigers played the last two seasons combined.

The pandemic restricted Sewanee to just 16 and 10 games during Wright’s freshman and sophomore seasons, respectively.

This time around, the former Wolf was one of three Tigers to start all 33 games on the diamond.

Wright finished the season leading the team in at-bats (102), runs (15), and home runs (2).

She was #2 in RBI (17), and #3 in hits (25), total bases (35), and doubles (4) while seeing time at both catcher and third base.

The former Coupeville Valedictorian is majoring in politics at Sewanee and has made both the SAA Academic Honor Roll and All-Sportsmanship team during her time in Tennessee.
