Copeland Named CGASPORTS.COM Athlete of the Week

NEW LONDON, Conn.- Coast Guard Academy senior forward Robert Copeland has been named CGASPORTS.COM Player of the Week for his play last week in leading the Bears to an unblemished record.

Copeland scored his second goal of the season and the only goal of the game in the Bears' 1-0 victory at archrival Merchant Marine on Saturday. His 20th minute tally allowed Coast Guard to remain undefeated on the season at 3-0-1 heading into this evening's match-up with Mass. Maritime.

He is currently the Bears' team-leader in both goals scored and points (five) through their first four games. The team is off to their best start since 2008 when they opened the year with four consecutive victories.

Coast Guard will try to remain perfect when they head to Mass. Maritime today for a 6:00 pm match-up. The Bears will return home on Saturday to take on Babson in their New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference opener at 12:00 pm.
