Blugold Super Six
A four-year letterwinner, Cope may have been the greatest female tennis player in school history. She earned Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Division III All-America honors as a senior when she was the ITA national runner-up. She was a four-time Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC) No. 1 singles champion, the only one in conference history, and helped the Blugolds extend their string of consecutive conference championships to eight. Four times she qualified for the NCAA Division III singles and doubles championships and her junior and senior years led the team to its first-ever NCAA team championship participation. The team advanced to the quarterfinals of the national tournament last spring.
During her senior year, Cope faced 12 players who eventually participated in the national tournament, and finished with a 26-9 record, giving her a 97-22 mark for her career which included 23-3 as a freshman, 27-4 as a sophomore and 21-6 as a junior.
She was a co-winner of the WIAC Scholar-Athlete award for tennis as a senior and earned a spot on the Verizon Academic All-District V second team.
Cope was a two-year representative on the Student Athlete Advisory Committee and spent one year as a volunteer for the Adult Community Fitness Program.
Cope graduated last May as an exercise management major with a 3.64 cumulative GPA.
