Coupeville High School names Roberts, Toomey-Stout top athletes

Coupeville High School Athletes of the Year Lindsey Roberts and Sean Toomey-Stout left their imprint all over the Wolves’ sporting scene in 2018-19.

The pair received the award, the school’s most prestigious individual athletic honor, at an assembly Tuesday, June 4.

“You won’t meet a pair of leaders who match their humility, willingness to receive coaching, leadership and athletic skill,” Coupeville High School track coach Randy King said.

Lindsey Roberts

One might say Roberts, a senior, was destined to win the award. Her parents, Jon and Sherry (Bonacci), each received the same honor during their Coupeville High School days.

Roberts earned 12 varsity letters, four each in soccer, basketball and track.

While she starred in in all three sports, Roberts shone brightest in track.

She finished her career with eight state medals, the most ever for a Coupeville female. She holds the school record in the 100 meter hurdles and qualified for state all four years in the event, including finishes of second, third and fourth.

She also had a hand in setting school records in the 4×100 and 4×200 relays.

Through the years, she displayed her versatility in track, also winning league titles in the long jump and 200 meters. She competed in the high jump this spring.

Roberts earned North Sound Conference first-team honors in soccer this year and was named the team’s Player of the Year. She was the team’s Defensive Player of the Year as a freshman and was named first-team, All-Olympic League as a sophomore.

Roberts tallied 17 goals while playing for the Wolves, third most in school history.

In basketball this winter, Roberts was team captain and Offensive Player of the Year while receiving first-team, all-league honors. She was first-team, all-Olympic League as a junior and honorable mention as a sophomore. She was the only member of the class of 2019 to letter in girls basketball as a freshman, and she received the team’s Wolf Paw Award as a sophomore.

Her 448 career points is 18th on the school’s scoring list.

“Besides being a gifted athlete, her effort and work ethic helped propel her to the many successes she had in her high-school career,” basketball coach David King said. “She showed up every day and gave her team and teammates 100 percent effort. On the basketball court she improved each year.

“Lindsey wasn’t always a vocal leader, but her presence and actions provided her teammates with an excellent example to follow.”

Randy King added, “Lindsey has a special way of cracking up most of the athletes in our school. She is a ‘Big Deal.’ She possesses a great combination of strength, skill, initiative and insight into others. Clearly she demonstrated all of this in leading our girls soccer, basketball and track teams.

“In large part, as a veteran senior, it was Lindsey’s encouragement and guidance that led our girls relay teams to their success this year when they finished third and fifth at the state championships.”

Sean Toomey-Stout

While a football injury curtailed much of his athletic participation last year, Toomey-Stout roared back to excel across the board in 2018-19.

The junior wasted little time in introducing himself to the new North Sound Conference this past fall. He earned football first-team honors in three positions: running back, defensive back and return specialist.

Toomey-Stout filled up the stat sheet in basketball on the way to being named the team’s Most Valuable Player and earning North Sound Conference honorable mention.

He led the Wolves in scoring in league games, points in the paint, steals, assists and offensive rebounds and was second in overall points and defensive rebounds.

This spring in track, he won the conference title in the long jump and 4×100 relay. He went on to place 10th in the state in the long jump and 16th in the 100 meters.

“Sean has been a rock for our sports teams the last couple of years,” Randy King said. “His work ethic is off the charts. He loves football and much of his weight-room work over the last two years has been to build his strength for that sport. On the other hand, he likes to play and likes to win. No one works harder during practice be it basketball, track or football.

“He also makes everyone around him better — more dedicated, harder working and with a spirit of joy. If you want to get better, keep up with Sean.”

Football coach Marcus Carr said, “Sean is a phenomenal young man. Even though I have known him for a short time, he has left a lasting impression. His hard work in the gym and football field is only surpassed by his hard work in the classroom.

“While he is not a vocal leader, he definitely leads our team by example with his work ethic. He is dedicated to making Coupeville teams the best programs they can be.”

Carr noted that in the offseason Toomey-Stout would move from one sport to another on the same day with “absolutely no drop off in his energy or intensity.”

“He has the drive and focus to be successful in whatever career path he chooses after college.”
