They’re giving back in multiple ways.

Having scrambled to pull off a successful virtual event during the Age of Coronavirus, organizers of Race the Reserve announced Tuesday they will award a scholarship to a graduating Coupeville student.

The $500 needs-based grant is in addition to the $9,500 the annual event brought in for the CHS Class of 2021.

Students applying for the scholarship have until April 30, 2021 to submit an essay and informational cover sheet.

Those applying will be asked two questions:

**Describe a time where you had to overcome adversity or a challenge in your life.

**Why do you feel the scholarship should be awarded to you?

The scholarship will be given to a graduating senior who has been accepted and will be attending a two-year or four-year college or university, technical school, or vocational school.

All essays will be sent anonymously to an independent panel from the community, with no affiliation to the school, who will read and determine the recipient.

Panel members will have no idea who wrote the essays, as they will only carry a number, and not a name.

The winner will be announced during the traditional CHS senior awards night, with a check made out to the recipient’s future school.

For more information or any questions, students should contact the school counselor.

Number seven is number three.

Zane Bundy became the third Coupeville High School senior to sign to play college ball, joining Makana Stone (Whitman, basketball) and Dalton Martin (track, Everett Community College).

Bundy, who has been a standout soccer player for the Wolves, is actually going to college as a football player, however.

He’s headed to Santa Barbara City College to kick for the Vaqueros.

The school is always on the outlook for “raw talent” and liked what they saw in Bundy and his big leg, said mom Janine.

During his single season of football, Zane led the Wolves in scoring, kicking five field goals and knocking down eight PATs.

Bundy finished his senior season tied for #1 among 1A players for field goals and fourth among Washington state prep kickers in all classifications.

Zane is all geared up and ready to go. I believe it will be a great fit for him,” said CHS football coach Brett Smedley. “Zane showed great ability and a willingness to learn and get better on a daily basis.

“I am very proud of him and look forward to seeing where this move takes him!”

SBCC plays in the American Pacific Division of the Southern California Football Association and has five league rivals — Antelope Valley, L.A. Pierce, L.A. Valley, Hancock and Citrus.

The league has actually been reformatted for 2016.

Playing in an eight-team conference this past season, the Vaqueros went 5-5 overall, 4-3 in league play.

Santa Barbara is coached by Craig Moropoulos, who has been on the job for nine seasons.

Dalton Martin is heading down the path Hunter Hammer blazed.

The Coupeville High School senior, who finished 5th in the discus at the 1A state track and field meet last year, signed a letter of intent Friday to Everett Community College.

Martin chose the school because it has a strong EMT program and it offered him the chance to throw on scholarship, said dad Bob.

EVCC competes in the Northwest Athletic Conference and added field events to its track team in 2011.

Hammer, a former CHS basketball and track star, was the school’s first big-time thrower.

After two years with the Trojans, he moved on to become an All-American at Trinity Lutheran.

Martin, who has played football, basketball, tennis and track during his time as a Wolf, competed in the shot put, discus and 4 x 100 as a junior.

He finished 3rd at districts in the shot put, while winning league, sub-district and district titles in the discus.

At the state meet in Cheney last spring, Martin unleashed a PR of 147 feet (nearly eight feet better than his previous best) to bring home a fifth-place medal.
