Logan Martin is throwing with the big boys.

The Coupeville High School grad competed in his second college track and field meet Saturday, joining his Central Washington University teammates at the Doris Heritage Track Festival in Renton.

The Wildcat freshman earned 6th place in the discus, chucking the implement 127 feet, 10 inches, and 9th in the shot put, where he lobbed the metal ball 37-09.50.

CWU track returns to action next Saturday, Mar. 25, when the ‘Cats travel to Tacoma for the Peyton/Shotwell Invitational.

During his days in Coupeville, Martin finished 2nd at state in the discus, shot put, and hammer throw.

He also played tennis and soccer and was a key part of the first Wolf boys’ basketball team to win a district title in 52 years.

He’s a one-man wrecking crew, but he could use a little help.

Coupeville High School grad Joey Lippo swung the bat with conviction Sunday, filling up the stat sheet, but it wasn’t enough to save the University of Maine at Presque Isle baseball team.

Lippo, kicking off a run of eight games in five days in Florida, racked up four hits, including a triple and an inside-the-park home run.

Toss in three RBI, and three runs scored, and the former Wolf had a solid day.

Unfortunately, Lippo’s heroics weren’t enough to save UMPI, which fell 18-9 and 19-2 to Colby-Sawyer College.

With the losses, the Owls sit at 0-4 on the young season, with doubleheaders set for Monday, Wednesday and Thursday before it’s back to less-sunny surroundings.

UMPI squares off with Utica University, the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, and SUNY Poly during the remainder of their visit to the Sunshine State.

Lippo, a junior who plays baseball and golf for the Owls, leads his team in virtually every relevant offensive stat category, including being the only slugger currently hitting .300 or better.

On to the next challenge.

Coupeville High School senior Nezi Keiper has signed to play soccer for Edmonds College.

A First-Team All-Conference player and team captain, the Wolf ace anchored her team’s defense the past four years.

Keiper was a tower of power on the backline for Coupeville, making life easier for her goaltender’s, while showcasing a mix of grit, hustle, and a booming leg.

She also played basketball at CHS and was a star football player back in her middle school days.

A member of the Coupeville Sports Hall o’ Fame, Keiper is slated to graduate this spring.

She will join an Edmonds team which is rebuilding after not competing in 2022.

The Tritons, who play in the Northwest Athletic Conference, have a new coach in place and Keiper is part of a group of recent signees who hail from spots such as Lynnwood, Monroe, and Utah.

Edmonds women’s soccer won NWAC titles in 2000 and 2002.

Making things official.

He’s an equal opportunity pitcher.

After making his first two college baseball appearances as a reliever, Coupeville grad Hawthorne Wolfe was tabbed to make his first start Saturday afternoon.

The former CHS ace tossed three scoreless innings for the Western Washington University club hardball squad, whiffing four Central Washington University hitters while keeping his ERA pristine.

While the Vikings eventually fell 6-5 after their bullpen failed to match Wolfe, it was the only loss for WWU, which claimed two of three for the second time this season.

Western, which clubbed Central 17-1 and 20-1 in the weekend’s other two games, sits at 4-2 overall, 2-1 in league play.

Wolfe, who leads Viking pitchers with three appearances on the mound, is 1-0 with a save, having struck out six across seven scoreless innings of work.

He’s scattered five hits and three walks, while plunking a rival batter just to keep everyone honest.

Along with his debut as a college starting pitcher, the former Northwest 2B/1B League MVP also got his first swings at the plate for the Vikings this past weekend.

Wolfe scored twice, picked up an RBI, and made off with his first college steal.

Running, throwing, or rowing — former Coupeville athletes sparkled in multiple locales Friday and Saturday.

Sisters Lucy and Sophie Sandahl returned to the water with their Seattle Pacific University rowing teammates, while former Wolves Ja’Tarya Hoskins and Logan Martin kicked off the outdoor track and field season — just no longer as teammates.

The Sandahls zipped across American Lake in Lakewood at the PLU Invite, helping their varsity four squad capture two lopsided wins.

Lucy Sandahl was the boat’s coxswain, with Megan Rouse (stroke seat), Addie Clark (third seat), Gem Gatmaytan (second seat), and Sophie Sandahl (bow seat) busy on the oars.

SPU dominated against Western Washington University and Seattle University, jumping out to open water after the first 500 meters in both races.

“That is the first time we’ve ever competed with that line up and it was a very strong race day,” Lucy Sandahl said. “It was a good start to building a strong foundation for the season.”

The sensational siblings and their associates return to action Mar. 25, when they’ll take to the water for the Husky Open on the Montlake Cut in Seattle.

While the Sandahls were soaring under cloudy conditions, Martin and Hoskins reunited in Tacoma at the Ed Boitano Invitational.

Hoskins, who is zipping towards graduation from Saint Martin’s University this spring, ran in the 200 at the season-opener, hitting the tape in 31.06 seconds.

Meanwhile, Martin, a freshman at Central Washington University, threw in three events across the two days of the meet.

He claimed 5th place (out of 25 athletes) in the hammer throw with a heave of 154 feet, four inches, while also finishing 10th in the discus (112-07) and 20th in the shot put (34-00).
