Stephanie Williams joins the Blue Demon coaching staff as a graduate assistant after an illustrious career on the track for DePaul. Over her four years as a student-athlete, Williams set five sprint and relay school-records while tallying numerous BIG EAST Conference qualification marks.
Williams earned her undergraduate degree in Communication from DePaul in the spring of 2009. After being named a G.A., she re-enrolled into the DePaul's College of Communication; this time to advance her bachelors degree to masters status. She plans to place her concentration on journalism, and aspires to work in healthcare public relations. She currently volunteers at Children's Memorial Hospital.
Williams led the sprinters all four years of her career, routinely topping the Blue Demon performance lists in all sprint categories. During her senior year, she was named the outdoor squad's Most Outstanding Performer after placing fourth at the 2009 BIG EAST Outdoor Championship in the 200m.
During the 2009 indoor season, Williams tied Kim Smith's 60m record to earn a spot in the history books. The prior season, she set the indoor 200m DePaul record after clocking a time of 22.49 to replace Sherri Bean's 21 year old mark.
Although she will specialize in working with the sprinters, Williams will work as a graduate assistant coach with both the cross country and track and field teams.
