All-American Joins as Assistant Swimming Coach
Stefl joined the Colonials after two years as assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at Youngstown State University, where the Penguins broke 13 program records under Stefl's guidance. While at YSU, Stefl also served as an instructor in the university's exercise science department and organized the Penguins' fall and spring clinics.
Prior to her stint at YSU, Stefl spent two years as a graduate assistant coach for Springfield College, where she helped train one Division III national champion, six All-Americans and three relay Honorable Mention All-Americans, and the women's squad placed 14th at the NCAA Division III Championships in 2012 and 2013. Stefl also coached as an assistant at Union College from 2010-11, helping the program earn 2010 Liberty League Coaching Staff of the Year while coaching a team of women's 200 free relay NCAA Honorable Mention All-Americans.
A 2009 graduate of Kalamazoo College, Stefl was a four-year standout student-athlete for the Hornets, earning the Senior Female Athlete and Knoechel Family Awards in 2009. The political science and religion major was a career All-MIAA Academic Team member, garnered Academic All-America honors three times (2007-09) and earned NCAA Division III All-America accolades in 2007 and NCAA Division III All-America Honorable Mention recognition in 2008 and 2009. A two-year team captain, Stefl graduated with four program records and two MIAA League records.
