The Big Hurt continues to get big props.

Coupeville grad Nick Streubel, who just wrapped his senior football season at Central Washington University, was tabbed Wednesday for two awards.

When Great Northwest Athletic Conference coaches tallied up their votes, the former Wolf was named a First-Team All-League pick and the GNAC Offensive Lineman of the Year.

Streubel, who anchored the Wildcat line at center, made the All-Conference team for the third time in his collegiate career.

Central, which finished the season on a six-game winning streak, finished 5-1 in league play, 7-4 overall, winning a third-straight league crown.

The ‘Cats snagged 11 spots on the GNAC’s First Team with Billy Greer joining Streubel as an individual winner.

The league leader in sacks, Greer was picked as the GNAC Defensive Player of the Year.

Streubel, who has been a First Team pick three straight seasons, led an offensive line which helped Central roll up 504.7 yards per game, best in the GNAC and ninth-best in all of D-II football.

During his time in Coupeville, he was a three-sport star for the Wolves, playing football and basketball, while also competing in track and field.

Mallory Kortuem, who combines speed, toughness, and a deft touch with the ball, was named a First-Team All-League player by North Sound Conference coaches.

Mallory Kortuem made a very positive impression on folks.

The Coupeville High School senior was tabbed a First-Team All-League pick by North Sound Conference coaches, while also taking home her team’s Player of the Year award.

The Wolf midfielder/defender and her teammates were honored Tuesday night, as CHS coach Kyle Nelson closed out the season with a team awards banquet.

Sophomore Noelle Daigneault (Most Improved) and freshmen Nezi Keiper and Carolyn Lhamon (Rookies of the Year) were also honored by Nelson.

It was a decent haul.

While Coupeville High School has the smallest student body (by far) in the North Sound Conference, Wolf athletes more than held their own in year one of the new six-team league.

Counting the 14 athletic teams CHS sends into action, Cow Town produced one league MVP, two Coaches of the Year, and 32 athletes who received at least one All-Conference selection during the 2018-2019 school year.

Actually, our little exercise only covers 12 of the 14 teams, as the NSC gave no All-Conference honors for girls or boys tennis.

So, that leaves softball, baseball, volleyball, football, plus girls and boys teams in cross country, soccer, track and field, and basketball.

Before we run through the cold hard numbers, there are a couple of things to know.

Six Wolves earned All-Conference honors in two sports, with Emma Smith, Maya Toomey-Stout, Gavin Knoblich, Ryan Labrador, Dane Lucero, and Sean Toomey-Stout all proving themselves to be multi-talented.

Knoblich and the Toomey-Stout twins are juniors, so 50% of the Two-Timers Club can return next year.

Going one better, senior Lindsey Roberts (soccer, basketball, track) and junior Scout Smith (volleyball, basketball, softball) are the only CHS athletes to make an All-Conference team in each of the year’s three seasons.

Of other note, track and cross country listed no MVP’s or Coach of the Year winners, and those two sports chose their All-Conference teams based solely on how athletes placed at the league meet.

The other eight sports had coaches vote for postseason honors.

And lastly, not all sports referred to their top players as MVP’s, so those distinctions will be noted in the list.
