Nikolai Lyngra and 63 others will join her Friday night for graduation.

Can’t tell the players without a scorecard, and even then you might get thrown a bit.

Three days out from graduation for the Coupeville High School Class of 2019, I have the official list of who should be headed to the podium Friday to receive their diplomas, though not all the names ring a bell.

That’s mainly because when you graduate they use your legal name, and, often, when I write about sports, the athletes are operating under a long-held nickname or different variation on their moniker.

So, while Danny Conlisk just won two state titles in track, when he picks up his diploma, the name called will be James Conlisk.

Or, how I just figured out the Jonathan Johnson graduating is the tennis/track/drama star I knew as Tiger Johnson.

And then, after years of referring to Maddy Hilkey or Gaby Halpin during their sports days, it’s back to the more proper Madeline and Gabriella for this one night.

Anyways, enough about that, and on to the “I was told it was official” list of the 65 members of the CHS Class of ’19:

Shout-out to the yard crew!

Saturday brings Race the Reserve to town, the biggest fundraiser of the year for the Coupeville High School Class of 2019.

With preparation for the race — which features a marathon, half marathon, 10K and more — at peak levels, the parking lot at the CHS gym was not forgotten.

Wielding weed eaters and loppers, community members descended on the overgrown lot Friday and restored it to livable conditions.

So, this way, while runners may stagger through the lot after running across the prairie, at least none of them will vanish into a mass of overgrown vines as they catch their breath.

Nicely done, one and all.

Won’t someone run for the kids?

We’re approaching that time of year again, when the incoming senior class at Coupeville High School hosts the annual Race the Reserve.

The event, which goes down Aug. 11 this year, is the biggest fundraiser for the senior trip, which will benefit the CHS Class of 2019.

Registration is open now, and you can pick between marathon, half marathon, 5K, 10K or marathon relay.

As always, the race winds through some of the most eye-popping scenery to be found on the running circuit.

Abby Hamilton

Abby Hamilton

Mission accomplished.

Coupeville High School freshman Abby Hamilton joined the Wolf cheer squad for friendship and has found her hopes fulfilled.

“This is my first year and I started because I thought I would make more and new friends and because I thought it was fun!,” Hamilton said. “I enjoy being with everyone and having a lot of fun with them.

“And being able to get out and actually doing something fun after school and during the summer!”

The friendships she has made in the build-up to the regular season has had an immediate difference in her outlook on life.

“All of my cheer sisters have impacted me by a lot,” Hamilton said. “By telling me that I can get through this and that I CAN do it.”

Hamilton also credits her family for their support, with one close relative getting a special shout-out.

“My mom, she has always been there when I had tough times in my life,” Hamilton said. “She is like my best friend and I love her for it.”

When she’s not working on cheer routines, the Wolf frosh can usually be found off somewhere being creative.

“I really enjoy art,” Hamilton said. “That’s like my getaway when I have tough times.

“And I also love music, all types of music.”

While CHS classifies cheer as an activity and not a sport, Hamilton and her teammates know the effort, hard work and skill their vocation requires.

Call it what you will, but respect the commitment.

“I would tell them that cheerleaders actually work hard to accomplish their routines and cheers and that we do a lot of physical activity like running and doing extreme workouts,” she said.

“We are just like the football players,” Hamilton added. “We get out there and we work hard and we do the best we can.”
