Another Kupp is bound for Cheney

YAKIMA – Five seniors from the Central Washington Sounders made their intentions to play college soccer official Wednesday night, Dec. 9 – including one with a pretty well-known pedigree at Eastern Washington University.

Davis’ Katrina Kupp, East Valley’s Grace Russell, Naches Valley’s Faith Hahn-Landis, Selah’s Chloe Andrews and Eisenhower’s Abigail Wammock signed their letters of intent in a brief ceremony at Trinity Church of the Nazarene. Coach Marty Lackey said more than 70 boys and girls players have joined a college team since 2015, creating a competitive environment Russell said helped her significantly.

“These other four girls, they’re awesome,” Russell said. “They pushed me since we started playing together.”

Kupp, a midfielder who assisted the game-winning goal to lift Davis to its first district win in four years last fall, will play Division I soccer at Eastern Washington. She said she’s looking forward to joining former Sounders teammate Grace Terrill, a 2020 Cle Elum graduate.

Kupp is also pretty familiar with the area, having spent six years traveling with her parents to Cheney for virtually every home football game to watch her brothers Cooper and Kettner enjoy standout careers for the Eagles.

“My sister-in-law (M’Kenna Hayes), she played for (coach Chad Bodnar), so there’s that connection as well,” Kupp said. “I got to see her play.”
