Softball earns academic awards

The Colonials saw eight student-athletes earn 2011 National Fastpitch Coaches Association All-America Scholar Athlete honors, and reported a combined 3.26 cumulative grade-point average to earn NFCA All-Academic Team accolades.

Katie Terrazas and Ali Waterman, 2011 graduates, seniors Jillian Stanley, Lauren Wilson and Amanda Zakeri, juniors Sandi Moynihan, also a Hatchet reporter, and Kristi Saporito and sophomore Chelsea Lenhart, were all named NFCA All-America Scholar Athletes. The award honors players who have posted a 3.50 grade-point average or higher during the 2010 to 2011 academic year.

“Any student who excels at the George Washington University has clearly accomplished something great,” head coach Stacey Schramm said. “To be able to manage the time needed to excel in both softball and the classroom is truly outstanding.”

The Colonials were just one of four Atlantic 10 programs to earn the recognition, joined by Rhode Island, Saint Joseph’s and Saint Louis.

Last season, under the leadership of then first-year coach Schramm, GW earned a 16-27-1 overall record, a 10-win improvement from the previous year. The Colonials will welcome seven rookies to the spring 2012 lineup, joining 16 letterwinners from last season.
