Stacey Schramm enters her third season as head coach of the George Washington University softball team in the fall of 2012.
During her first season at the helm of the Colonials program, Schramm made an immediate impact. Her squad finished the 2011 season with a 16-27-1 record, a 10-win improvement from the 2010 season.
But the GW softball team achieved new heights under Schramm in 2012, reaching the Atlantic 10 Championship title game for the first time in program history. The colonials manufactured a nine-win improvement from the previous year for a school-record 25 victories, while also smashing program marks for doubles (63), home runs (41), stolen bases (86) and ERA (2.88).
In addition, two Colonials - outfielder Lauren Wilson and pitcher Kara Clauss - were named to the Atlantic 10 All-Conference Second Team, the first GW players to earn all-conference honors since 2008.
Schramm took over the Colonials' program after two seasons as head coach at Queens University of Charlotte (NC) where she guided the Royals to a 53-49 (.520) record, back-to-back Conference Carolinas Tournament Championships and two NCAA Division II Tournament berths.
During her tenure at WJU, Schramm increased the team's win-loss percentage three years in a row, almost doubling the squad's wins from nine to 17 during her first year at the helm. Under her leadership, the team achieved the most regular season wins since the softball program's inception in 2002.
