Former GSA standout inducted into Bowdoin’s Athletic Hall of Honor



ELLSWORTH — Lora Trenkle Cooperman, daughter of Doug and Claire Trenkle of Surry, was inducted Oct. 8 into the Bowdoin College Athletic Hall of Honor.

A member of the Class of 2004 at Bowdoin, Cooperman was, according to the induction program, “one of the greatest players in the history of Bowdoin’s storied women’s basketball program.”

Cooperman, who now resides with her husband in New York City, where she is a banker with J.P. Morgan, had an outstanding career as team captain. She holds a place in the top 10, all-time records for career and single-season points, assists, free throws, three-pointers and career field goals, among other statistics cited.

Cooperman, who also had an outstanding basketball career at George Stevens Academy, was twice named New England Small College Athletic Conference, Maine and New England Player of the Year. Last year, Cooperman was inducted into the New England Basketball Hall of Fame.

“You have been recognized nationally as one of the great players in Division III history,” the program noted.
