PARKERSBURG (KWWL) -

Former Aplington-Parkersburg stand-out Chelsea Poppens returned home on Tuesday to receive a special honor.  Poppens became the first female athlete in school history to have her jersey retired.

Poppens scored 1,484 points to set a school record in her high school career which ended in 2009.  She moved on to Iowa State where she became just the second Cyclone to finish a career with 1,000 points and 1,000 rebounds, and spent the last season playing professionally in Australia.
