Head Coach

Stacey Schramm enters her third season as the Head Softball Coach of the Cardinals.  Schramm led the team to an 11-9 conference record, and an 18-21-1 overall record during the 2007 season.  The squad finished fifth in the WVIAC conference tournament, getting knocked out in a nail biter by top seeded, University of Charleston, 2-1.  Schramm’s first recruited student athlete, Ashley McSweeney earned “Freshman of the Year” honors for the conference.  More importantly, the team finished even stronger in the classroom.  Earning a team grade point average of 3.4 for the 2006-07 year, the squad placed second in the athletic department behind the women’s golf team. 

Schramm came to Wheeling after coaching at Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA (2004-05.)  At Drexel, she helped lead the team to a third place finish and a first time appearance in post season play.  During the course of the season, the team was ranked nationally in defense and in pitching ERA.  Schramm coached three First Team All-Conference players, one of whom was an NFCA All-Region Selection, and another named Rookie of the Year.  Prior to assisting at Drexel, Schramm also coached at Bucknell University (2002-04), where she was primarily responsible for developing the outfielders.  Schramm was present for their first time reaching post season play in five years, as well.  Immediately after graduating from college, Schramm taught 8th grade special education at Northern Burlington Middle School, where she also served as an assistant softball coach to the high school team.

A 2001 graduate from Monmouth University (West Long Branch, New Jersey,) Schramm was the four year starting shortstop and was named captain during her junior and senior seasons.  She helped lead the squad to consecutive first place finishes in 2000 and 2001.  In 2000, she was named to the First Team All-Conference Team in, and was second in the conference in stolen bases.  As a senior, Schramm was honored as a scholar-athlete, and nominated for Woman of the Year.  Prior to collegiate ball, Schramm was the starting shortstop for the highly competitive Jersey Devils, under Hall of Fame ASA Coach Jimmy Hollands.  The team was 74-11 (second most wins, and fewest losses in program history ) and placed 7th at the ASA National Tournament (1997.)  Most recently (2004), she and her twin sister (who was the 2nd baseman at Monmouth University) were named to the All-Decade Team in Gloucester County, NJ.

Assistant Coach

Elizabeth Fuller (Manassas, Va) returns for her third season as the graduate assistant co-pitching coach.  Fuller was a 2005 Drexel University graduate, where Coach Schramm served as the Assistant Softball Coach.  The former Dragon finished her Drexel career with 369 career strikeouts.  Fuller led the team in starts, innings pitched, complete games, and strikeouts during three of four seasons.  When she was not pitching, Liza started in left field for the squad.  During her senior year, she was named to the All-Colonial Athletic Association Second Team as an outfielder.  An outstanding hitter, she led the Dragons in batting average, triples and RBIs in 2005.  After leading her team to the conference tournament for the first time, Fuller started both games and found a spot on the CAA All-Tournament Team.  Immediately following her collegiate career, Fuller traveled to Germany to play for the Hamburg Knights.  The team consisted of players from Berlin, Stausberg, Paderborn, Cologne, Dortmund, and Brauweiler.  They also traveled to Italy to compete in the European Cup Tournament. 

Fuller will be responsible for developing a pitching staff of three freshmen and one sophomore.  She will also assist in coaching the outfielders and hitters, as well as other overall team management duties.  In addition to her coaching duties, Liza is also pursuing her MBA in Business Management.
