University of Northern Iowa senior Sam Copley, a Dallas Center-Grimes graduate, was named last week to the all-Missouri Valley Conference soccer second team.

Copley, a defender, started all 19 games for the Panthers, helping the team log shutouts in each of their four wins.

It was the second time she was named to the all-conference second team. She was an honorable mention last season.

Copley was a three-time all-conference pick in high school, earning all-state honorable mention honors her first two seasons. She was a second-team all-state pick in 2009 and a first-team all-state pick her senior season in 2010.
