Joey Lippo

It’s the cherry on top of the sundae.

Coupeville grad Joey Lippo was honored Thursday, named as a First-Team All-League pick when North Atlantic Conference baseball coaches picked their all-stars.

Lippo, a sophomore at the University of Maine at Presque Isle, was honored for his play in the outfield, and was one of two Owls tabbed.

Junior first-baseman Timothy Burns was also a First-Team pick.

Lippo started all 35 games for UMPI this season, and led the Owls in at-bats (123), runs (31), triples (2), RBI (22), walks (14), and stolen bases (8).

Skyy Lippo’s twin brother was second on his squad in hits (39), batting average (.317), on-base percentage (.386) and home runs (1).

The bat gets a rest.

After swinging a hot stick all season, Coupeville grad Joey Lippo officially reached the end of his sophomore season playing baseball at the University of Maine at Presque Isle.

The Owls dropped a pair of doubleheaders over the weekend, falling to Thomas College 15-3 and 4-3 Saturday, before succumbing 12-2 and 4-1 Sunday to New England College.

UMPI finishes 6-29, which is a bump in games played and games won from last year’s pandemic-altered 1-17 campaign.

Lippo went out lashing, picking up four hits and three RBI in his final weekend of play.

The former Wolf three-sport star was one of just two Owls to play in all 35 games, and he led UMPI in at-bats (123), runs (31), triples (2), RBI (22), walks (14), and stolen bases (8).

Skyy Lippo’s twin brother was second on his squad in hits (39), batting average (.317), on-base percentage (.386) and home runs (1).

Joey played most of the season in the outfield, gunning down runners with long throws from the shadows, but he also pitched in three games for the Owls, striking out four across five innings of work.

Things are trending upwards.

Sparked by Coupeville grad Joey Lippo, the University of Maine at Presque Isle baseball squad swept a doubleheader Thursday, running its winning streak to three games.

The Owls bopped the University of Maine at Farmington 6-1 and 18-5 in the twin-bill, improving to 6-19 on the season.

UMPI, which won just a single game last season, is starting to find its groove, and a big part of the credit goes to Lippo and his deadly bat.

The former Wolf, now a college sophomore, filled up the stat sheet Thursday, piling up two hits — including a double — two RBI, two walks, four runs, and a stolen base.

On the season, Skyy Lippo’s twin is one of just two Owls to have appeared in all 25 games.

Joltin’ Joey leads the UMPI hardball squad in runs (23), triples (2), RBI (18), and walks (11), and is tied for top honors in stolen bases (5) and home runs (1).

The former CHS three-sport star is second in at-bats (88) and hits (30), and third in batting average (.341), on-base percentage (.412), and slugging percentage (.455).

Lippo and Co. have 10 regular season games remaining, with four of them coming up this weekend, when UMPI is set to play back-to-back doubleheaders against Husson University.

Across the nation, Wolves are winning the day.

Saturday, Coupeville High School grad Sarah Wright picked up a game-deciding RBI in a college softball game, and Sunday it was Joey Lippo’s turn.

The former Wolf baseball ace punched across the game’s only run with a fourth-inning single to lift the University of Maine at Presque Isle to a 1-0 victory against Thomas College.

The win gave the Owls a doubleheader split after they fell 11-6 in the opener, and lifts UMPI to 4-19 on the season.

Lippo finished with three hits, two runs, an RBI, and a stolen base on the afternoon.

Presque Isle is in the thick of its schedule, with six games set for next week.

The Owls have doubleheaders Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday, with 12 games total left on the regular season schedule.

Lippo, a UMPI sophomore, has been at the forefront of the stat chase all season.

Skyy’s twin brother leads the Owls in at-bats (80), runs (19), triples (2), home runs (1), RBI (16), walks (9), and stolen bases (4), and is second in batting average (.342) and hits (28).

There was no escaping from Joey Lippo’s booming bat.

The Coupeville grad carved up rival pitchers Sunday, collecting five hits — including a three-run triple — and five RBI, as he and the University of Maine at Presque Isle baseball squad returned to action.

After sitting idle for eight days, Lippo and Co. split a doubleheader with Central Maine Community College, winning the nightcap 11-5 after being nipped 6-5 in the opener.

With the split, the Owls get to 3-16 on the year.

Lippo was locked in all day, opening with three hits and scoring a run in the first game.

But it was game #2 where he really went wild, launching a bases-clearing three-bagger followed by a two-run single.

Another run scored on a Lippo fly ball which was misplayed for an error, while the former Wolf also stole two bases.

Through 19 games, Skyy Lippo’s twin sibling leads UMPI in at-bats (65), runs (16), triples (2), home runs (1), RBI (13), walks (8), and steals (3).

He’s second on the Owls in batting average (.385), on-base percentage (.440), slugging percentage (.523), and hits (25).

UMPI returns to action next weekend, when it plays four games against Thomas College.
