Stacey Schramm enters her sixth season as head coach of the George Washington University softball team in the fall of 2015.
During her first season at the helm of the Colonials program, Coach Schramm made an immediate impact, as her squad finished the 2011 season with 10 more wins than in 2010.
But the GW softball team achieved new heights under Coach 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.
In 2014, infielder Megan Linn became the first GW freshman to earn all-conference honors, with an All-Conference Second Team selection alongside shortstop Victoria Valos. Linn was also named to the All-Rookie squad, while Martin nabbed her second straight All-Academic nod.
In 2015, the Colonials (25-23) reached the 25-win plateau for just the third time in program history. On Feb. 6, Coach Schramm tallied the 200th career victory in her collegiate coaching career with an 8-6 triumph over Evansville. Freshman pitcher Sarah Costlow earned a spot on the A-10 All-Rookie Team while junior Carlee Gray landed on the Academic All-Conference Team.
Coach Schramm took over the Colonials' program after two seasons as head coach at Queens University of Charlotte (N.C.) 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, Coach Schramm increased the team's winning 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.
