McKenzie Bailey, prairie legend.

All eyes on her.

McKenzie Bailey, vaunted member of the Coupeville Sports Hall o’ Fame, and sharer (with sisters McKayla and Mollie) of the title of Prairie Photo Bomb Queen, continues to get noticed.

This time around she’s being honored by Central Washington University, named as one of three “Wildcats to Watch” for December.

Bailey, a 2020 CWU grad who is currently teaching 8th grade science in Ellensburg, was nominated “for her involvement as an intern in the STEM teaching program.”

Part of the Engle family, which has lived and farmed in Coupeville for decades, the middle of Rusty and Donna Bailey’s three daughters played volleyball, basketball, and tennis during her days as a Wolf.

Rebecca Robinson has been a high-flying superstar for quite some time now.

So it comes as little surprise that one of Coupeville’s best and brightest is being hailed once again for her scholastic achievements.

Robinson, who graduated from Central Washington University with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, with a specialization in Marketing Management, didn’t just pick up her diploma.

The former Wolf cheerleader was named a Dean’s Scholar, for finishing in the top 5% of all CWU College of Business grads, while also being honored as the Marketing Student of the Year.

Robinson, who is engaged to fellow CHS Class of 2016 grad Zane Bundy, would like to eventually open her own marketing agency in Ellensburg.

Back in her Coupeville days, the daughter of Salon Blue owner Naomie Welshans was already a high-achieving whirlwind of talent.

In between her time cheering on the CHS football sideline — where she won the team’s Spirit Award as a senior — Robinson acted in numerous plays with the school’s theatre troupe.

A member of the National Honor Society, she volunteered with the International Order of Rainbow Girls, helped with Northwest Harvest food drives, was a team captain for a Relay for Life team, and volunteered as a teacher’s assistant.

At this rate, they’ll never stop giving him awards.

Coupeville’s Nick Streubel has graduated from Central Washington University, and played his final football game for the Wildcats two months ago, but he keeps getting pulled back in to be honored.

Tuesday afternoon The Big Hurt was named as an All-Super Region Four player, joining three of his teammates.

Streubel was tabbed as a Second-Team pick for his work on the offensive line, while running back Michael Roots was a First-Team selection.

Defensive lineman Billy Greer and defensive back Tyren Sams were both named to the Third Team.

With Streubel anchoring the Central Washington line at center, the ‘Cats offense piled up more than 5,500 yards, while scoring 58 touchdowns.

Roots was a big beneficiary of the team’s blocking, rumbling for 1,515 yards on 219 rushing attempts, and Central won its third-straight Great Northwest Athletic Conference title.

Streubel was the face of CWU football during his senior year, appearing front and center in much of the school’s advertising.

During his days in Coupeville, he was a three-sport star, playing football and basketball, while competing as a thrower during the track season.

One more honor? Sure, why not?

Coupeville High School grad Nick Streubel wrapped his collegiate football career at Central Washington University in mid-November, but accolades continue to roll in.

All-Conference and All-Region honors already safely stashed away, The Big Hurt was named Tuesday to the CWU All-Decade team by the CWU Crimson Committed Facebook page.

The page, launched in 2012 by Chris Pribbernow, is at the forefront of Wildcat athletics.

Streubel was tabbed as a First-Team pick, joining former All-Americans James Moore and Mike Nelson on the offensive line.

During his run in a Wildcat uniform, The Big Hurt was a three-time First-Team All-Conference selection and was tabbed as the Offensive Lineman of the Year as a senior by the Great Northwest Athletic Conference.

Back in his CHS days, Streubel was a standout in three sports — football, basketball, and track and field.

Don’t go, we have more awards.

Coupeville’s Nick Streubel has already graduated from Central Washington University and played the final football game of his stellar collegiate career, but the honors continue to flow in.

The former Wolf was recently tabbed as an All-Conference player for the third time, while also being named the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Offensive Lineman of the Year.

Now the red-shirt senior has been named for the second time to the All-Super Region 4 team.

Streubel, who anchored Central’s line at center as the Wildcats won a third-straight league crown, was a First Team selection, while teammate Tyren Sams, a defensive back, made the Second Team.

With the All-Region honor tucked away, The Big Hurt is eligible now for All-American status.

After playing football, basketball, and track and field during his Coupeville High School days, Streubel spent six seasons on the CWU gridiron squad.

He red-shirted his freshman season, then later missed a year with a medical red-shirt after breaking his hand into about a zillion pieces.

Through it all, Streubel was a standout when on the field, and ended his career as a captain and the face of Wildcat football, adorning much of the team’s branding this season.

Central rolled up 504.7 yards of total offense per game this season, best in their league, and ninth-best among all NCAA D-II teams.

Streubel and Co. also surrendered just 13 sacks all season.
