He’s a one-man wrecking crew, but he could use a little help.

Coupeville High School grad Joey Lippo swung the bat with conviction Sunday, filling up the stat sheet, but it wasn’t enough to save the University of Maine at Presque Isle baseball team.

Lippo, kicking off a run of eight games in five days in Florida, racked up four hits, including a triple and an inside-the-park home run.

Toss in three RBI, and three runs scored, and the former Wolf had a solid day.

Unfortunately, Lippo’s heroics weren’t enough to save UMPI, which fell 18-9 and 19-2 to Colby-Sawyer College.

With the losses, the Owls sit at 0-4 on the young season, with doubleheaders set for Monday, Wednesday and Thursday before it’s back to less-sunny surroundings.

UMPI squares off with Utica University, the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, and SUNY Poly during the remainder of their visit to the Sunshine State.

Lippo, a junior who plays baseball and golf for the Owls, leads his team in virtually every relevant offensive stat category, including being the only slugger currently hitting .300 or better.

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.

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