Victoria Cope
Cope, who hails from Windsor, Ontario, is wrapping up her fourth year at Assumption College Catholic High School where she was a member of the cross country, track & field and volleyball teams. A four-year team captain in volleyball, Cope was twice tabbed the Team MVP in 2013-14 and 2012-13, while she also was awarded the Coach's Award in cross country in 2013-14. A member of the Eastside Kickers Club Team, Cope lead her team to a first-place finish at the 2014 Crossroads of America College Showcase event in April, allowing only one goal for the entire tournament. Prior to that, Cope posted a shutout weekend and led her team to a first-place finish in the top flight of the 2014 Umbro Top Rated College Showcase event in May. Cope posted a 13-2-1 record overall and allowed only eight goals over 16 matches, a league best, to guide her team to a second-place overall finish in the OYSL. The MVP in the Ontario Summer Games in 2012, Cope's squad finished as Silver Medalists at the Ontario Summer Games and was also 2012 Ontario Cup Finalists.

Intending to study Art History at BGSU, Cope has received Honors with Distinction for each of the last three years 2011-2014 and is set to receive that recognition once again in her senior  year.

"Victoria is a tremendous athlete with good hands and shot stopping abilities. Her tool set is different than that of our current three goal keepers which will make this role even more competitive."
