Former Coupeville soccer standout Erin Rosenkranz continues to win awards, but these days most of them come in the world of academics.

The CHS grad was honored Friday by Western Washington University, named as the school’s 2020 Outstanding Biochemistry Student.

The award is named for Professor Sea Bong Chang, who taught at Western from 1964-1972.

Rosenkranz, who competed in soccer and track and field for the Wolves, is working towards her Masters in Biochemistry.

During her high school days, Erin was a top-notch student and a stellar athlete, one who earned enshrinement in the Coupeville Sports Hall o’ Fame.

She is joined in the digital shrine by mom Kerry (McCormick) Rosenkranz, a top CHS cross country runner in the ’80s, and dad Scott, one of the soccer coaches who fueled a boom in the sport on Whidbey Island.

Balancing two soccer teams, as she also played for the Whidbey Islanders select squad, Erin Rosenkranz was a First-Team All-League pick during her senior season at CHS.

She also took home the team MVP award that year.

Let it rain.

Things went digital this year, but Coupeville High School seniors still brought home an impressive collection of awards and scholarships.

Instead, the school made a collection of video presentations, which were posted online Tuesday afternoon.

The CHS Class of 2020, led by co-Valedictorians Anna Dion and Scout Smith, and Salutatorian Lucy Sandahl, graduates Saturday.

To see who earned awards and scholarships, as well as view senior realization speeches from Avalon Renninger, Xaiviar Lee, and Zara Bradley, pop over to:

All the awards belong to us.

They danced away with all the awards.

Or at least most of them.

Three Coupeville Elementary School students had a strong performance in Seattle this weekend, claiming multiple prizes for their artistry on the stage.

Lucy Humphries, Sophia Batterman, and Maliha Breaux all are members of the Phoenix Rising Dance Company.

Competing at Dupree Dance in Seattle, the trio of Coupeville stars won awards both for solo and group performances.

As a trio, they received Gold Awards for all three of their dances, as well as picking up a Special Award and 3rd place overall High-Score Award for their performance of “In the Arms of an Angel.”

That dance, and “Ex’s and Oh’s” and “Jailhouse” were choreographed by Selestino Rendon.

Breaux and Batterman earned Platinum Awards for their solos, with Humphries notching a Gold Award.

Rendon choreographed Batterman’s solo, with Breaux and Humphries co-choreographing their dances with moms Nikki and Lynnette, respectively.
