Time to put the clubs away and start thinking about hefting a bat.

Coupeville High School grad Joey Lippo wrapped his second season of collegiate golf Sunday, competing at the North Atlantic Conference Championships.

Husson University, led by medalist Jack King, claimed the team title at the 11-school event.

Lippo, who reps the University of Maine at Presque Isle, finished 46th in the individual race after carding an 87 Saturday and a 98 Sunday at the Waterville Country Club in Oakland, Maine.

The former Wolf, who was an All-Conference baseball player for the Owls last spring, now turns his attention back to the diamond.

Lippo has two seasons of baseball and golf under his belt at UMPI, an NCAA D-III school.

During his time in Coupeville, he was a three-sport star, playing tennis, basketball, and baseball for CHS.

The Wolf is hunting eagles.

Coupeville grad Joey Lippo is pulling double duty at the University of Maine at Presque Isle, playing for the school’s baseball and golf squads.

His best performance as a college duffer came Thursday, when he topped the Owls scoring chart at the Mariner Invitational at Augusta, Maine.

Lippo carded an 88 on the 6,214-yard course, his best round at UMPI.

The Owls placed fifth in the team standings, with Thomas College holding off the field to claim the crown.

Lippo and Co. play twice this weekend, facing off with Husson University Saturday, before joining the SMCC Invitational Sunday.

The season wraps with the North Atlantic Conference Championships Oct. 8-9 in Waterville.

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.
