Wooster’s Copley earns All-NCAC honors

Former River Valley standout and current College of Wooster softball player Chelsea Copley had a sophomore season to remember in 2017 after earning a pair of prestigious honors within the North Coast Athletic Conference. Copley — the 2015 Valedictorian at RVHS — came away with an All-NCAC Tournament selection as she went 3-for-8 and had a home run while helping guide the Fighting Scots (20-23) to a third place finish. Copley also went 5-for-7, including an eventual game-winning homer, during a regular season doubleheader sweep of Ohio Wesleyan that allowed Wooster to qualify for its first NCAC tournament bid since 2012. Copley was also named to the honorable mention list of the All-NCAC squad after batting .270 and belting a team-high four homers to go along with 10 RBIs and 17 runs scored in 43 games. After two seasons and 81 games played at Wooster, Copley has six career homers — which is currently seventh on the program’s all-time list. Chelsea is the daughter of John and Michelle Copley of Bidwell. (Courtesy photo)
