There’s a new runner on the course.

Sam Wynn, who will be a freshman at Coupeville High School this fall, is joining older brother Henry and Danny Conlisk in pursuing a cross country career.

For now, that means training and traveling with South Whidbey, then competing as Wolves. The trio stay with the Falcons through the regular season, then break off come postseason time.

Rumors abound CHS might have its own cross country team in 2018, reviving a program with a rich history, including two individual state champs in Natasha Bamberger and Tyler King.

Until then, the current Wolf trio will make the trek South, and Sam Wynn, who was a strong track runner in middle school, will continue to work on fine-tuning his running skills.

“I would say an athletic strength I could have is following my coaches directions.

“I want to work on becoming much faster in both long and shorter distances,” Wynn added. “Improve my mile/5K times and become all-around faster and better.”

Wynn, who also plays soccer, skis and sails, doesn’t play favorites, but enjoys all of his activities.

“I wouldn’t say I have a absolute favorite sport, but currently I’m really enjoying both soccer and cross country,” he said. “I like having a good team and I would like to be able to enjoy winning more often.”

When he’s not involved in sports, Wynn can often be found around the stage, where he’s taken part in school drama productions.

As he pursues a new chapter in his life on the cross country course, he is grateful for the support crew which stands strong behind him on a daily basis.

“My family has always helped me stay fit and active and has always supported me in sports.”
