Colonials Look to Build on 2012 Success

Stacey Schramm enters her fourth season as head coach of the George Washington University softball team in the fall of 2013.

During her first season at the helm of the Colonials program, Schramm made an immediate impact, as her squad finished the 2011 season with 10 more wins than 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.

In 2013, the Colonials again broke the program record for victories and posted the first winning season in team history at 27-23. GW challenged for the top seed in the A-10 Championship, and a school-record six Colonials were named to A-10 All-Conference teams, including pitcher Courtney Martin, who became GW's first member of the All-Conference First Team since 2007, while outfielder Autumn Taylor became the first Colonial to earn All-Region honors from the NFCA since that same year.

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.

Prior to Queens University, Schramm spent three seasons at Division II Wheeling Jesuit University (WV). She coached the WJU team to a combined 60-70-2 record over three seasons and a third-place finish in the 2008 West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference tournament.

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.

She was also an assistant coach at Drexel University (2004-05) and at Bucknell University (2002-04).

Schramm, a 2001 graduate of Monmouth University, was a four-year starter at shortstop for the Hawks. As team captain her junior and senior seasons, she helped the Hawks to three Northeast Conference titles in her four seasons. She still ranks among the top five in MU's career records with 55 stolen bases and 65 walks, with 20 base-on-balls in 2000.

The GW Hatchet highlighted Schramm in the March 24, 2011 issue; read more here.
