“Determination. Makes you run, never stop. Got to win, got to run until you drop. Keep the pace, hold the race. Your mind is getting clearer. You’re over half way there. But the miles they never seem to end.”
— From the song “The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner,” by Iron Maiden

Cope, who recently earned two more medals at the Class AAAA state track meet in Albany, draws multitudes of praise from her coaches and those who see her compete first-hand.
