The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh head women’s soccer coach Erin Coppernoll registered her 200th coaching victory when the Titans defeated UW-Stevens Point 2-1 Wednesday at J. J. Keller Field at Titan Stadium.
Coppernoll, who played three seasons at UW-Stevens Point from 1994-96, owns a 200-169-36 record as the head coach of UW Oshkosh for 17 seasons (2004-present), North Park University for three (2001-03) and Ripon College for one (1999).
Coppernoll, the winningest soccer coach in UWO history, has guided the Titans to a 176-124-33 record, four NCAA Division III postseason appearances (2006, 2011, 2014 and 2015) and one conference championship (2015). This year’s team is off to a 9-2-1 record, including a 2-0 mark in Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC) play.
Earlier this season, Coppernoll became the third-winningest soccer coach in WIAC history. The 1993 Oshkosh West High School graduate moved into the position following her 174th UWO victory, a 2-0 triumph over Carroll University on Sept. 18. Coppernoll’s current UWO victory total ranks behind the 365 of retired UW-Stevens Point coach Sheila Miech and the 275 of current UW-Eau Claire coach Sean Yengo.
Coppernoll, who has tallied just three losing seasons during her tenure at UWO, has coached 29 players to 45 All-WIAC First Team citations and 11 players to 16 Division III All-Region accolades.
In the classroom, Coppernoll’s squads earned Team Academic awards from the United Soccer Coaches in 2008, 2012, 2013, 2016, 2018, 2019 and 2020.
Coppernoll played the 1993 campaign at Division I UW-Green Bay before transferring to UW-Stevens Point for the next three seasons. At UW-Stevens Point, she helped the Pointers to a 45-16-3 record (21-0-2 WIAC), two NCAA postseason appearances and a pair of WIAC championships. Coppernoll finished her UW-Stevens Point career with 28 goals and 22 assists. She was an All-WIAC First Team selection in 1996 and a Second Team award winner in 1995.
Coppernoll received a bachelor’s degree from UW-Stevens Point in 1998 and a master’s degree from North Park University in 2003.
