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.

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.
