Delaware Technical Community College freshman Jacob Copio was named a National Junior College Athletic Association Second Team All-American athlete for the 2018 men’s lacrosse season.
Copio, of Dover, a graduate of Caesar Rodney High School, led the nation in goals with 57 and was fifth in the nation in points and 15th in assists. He is the first All-American men’s lacrosse player for Delaware Tech in the program’s 10-year history, and the first for the xollege in any sport since 2012.
Copio previously was named First Team All-Region and Region XIX Offensive Player of the Year.
He credited the team’s chemistry and the level of coaching he received for being able to achieve his offensive production this year.
Copio will look to improve on his game next year when he transfers to Barton College in North Carolina to play for his final three years of eligibility. He will be joined on that team by fellow Delaware Tech freshman Jacob Soroko and sophomore Bodin Nichols. Barton College’s lacrosse program will be in its first season.
The Delaware Tech team finished the regular season with a 10-6 record, the second time in the program’s history that the team has recorded 10 wins in a season. Delaware Tech finished second in the Region XIX tournament, Head Coach Anthony Edwards was named Region XIX Coach of the Year, and four players earned All-Region honors.
