In Quarter-Finals, Copeland won a unanimous 3-0 decision over Andrew Heeter from Mechanicsburg HS and advanced to Semi-Finals.
In Semi-Finals, Copeland defeated Shikellamy High School’s Jill Maratek, who had beaten Copeland in Finals at the Scranton Invitational in November.
This led to a Final Round rematch against Mechanicsburg’s Jordan Smith, who Copeland defeated in the 3rd round. Copeland prevailed on a unanimous decision to win the Varsity LD championship.
