Softball coach resigns after six seasons

Softball head coach Stacey Schramm announced her resignation from the program Wednesday, according to a release from GW Athletics.

The search for a new coach will begin immediately, according to the release.

During her six seasons at the helm, Schramm recorded a 134-162-2 record and led the Colonials to the postseason three times, including earning the No. 6 seed in the 2016 A-10 tournament.

During this year’s double-elimination playoffs, Schramm and the Colonials dropped both of their first two games at the hands of Massachusetts (9–0) and Saint Louis (4–3), becoming the first victim of the tournament.

Even with the departure of Schramm, GW returns a strong roster for its 2016-2017 season. The Colonials only graduated two starters, senior infielders Carlee Gray and Morgan Matetic, while returning key contributors including sophomore pitcher Sarah Costlow and junior center fielder Monica Macchiarulo.
