After a three-year stint at Norman, Nichole Copeland was named the Mount St. Mary girls basketball coach Wednesday.

“This is an exciting moment for the Mount St. Mary girls basketball program and we are proud to welcome Coach Copeland as part of our Rocket family,” principal Talita DeNegri said in a release from the school.

Copeland spent 11 seasons at Mustang, where she led the Broncos to the state championship in 2006 along with a runner-up finish in 2007. She was also an assistant at Westmoore from 1996-2000.

Mount St. Mary has made the Class 4A state tournament the past three seasons, the most successful tenure in school history. Copeland replaces Rory Hamilton, who resigned recently to take the same position at Norman North.
