Coupeville High School grad Chelsea Prescott was featured prominently Wednesday when Medaille College celebrated National Girls and Women in Sports Day.

Prescott, a Female Athlete of the Year honoree at CHS, was a three-sport sensation for the Wolves, leading volleyball, basketball, and softball teams.
