Coupe to Throw for Queens College


High school senior Jared Coupe signed a National Letters of Intent on June 15 to continue his sterling track and field career at Queens College.

Competing in discus, hammer and weight throw since he was a freshman, Coupe broke out during his senior year, earning All-League and All-Division honors and breaking a school record in discus. His participation in East Islip’s track and field team’s undefeated championship season has been his high school highlight.

The senior was also a strong football player at left tackle and defensive end for three years, contributing to multiple Redmen championship game victories and earning a six-letter jacket.

Coupe, who plans to major in criminal justice, chose CUNY Queens primarily for its academics.
