May 27, 2009

BLACKSBURG – The Virginia Tech Athletics Department, along with head softball coach Scot Thomas announced Wednesday the addition of outfielder Stephanie Kujawa to the Hokies’ 2010 class as she joins five others who signed in the fall.

Kujawa, who is from Cooper City, Fla., did not play her senior season, electing to run track instead. But as a junior, she was named second-team all-county for the 6A-5A-4A division by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel and was named All-Broward County third-team for the 6A-5A level by The Miami Herald. As a sophomore, she was named second-team all-state and first-team all-county. She plays travel ball for Davie Power Black, the same club that produced former Hokie Charisse Mariconda, as well as current Tech players Kristen Froehlich and Kelsey Hensel.

“Stephanie is going to make an immediate impact,” Thomas said. “She has great speed and is a great athlete. She has played for a very good summer ball team and we believe she’s going to be able to compete for a spot right away in the outfield. She has really developed as an all-around athlete and softball player since her junior year as a late bloomer and we’re excited to have her join the program.”

Kujawa joins Kristina Cruz, Jasmin Harrell, Courtney Liddle, B.K. Smith and Hollee Warlitner, along with several invited walk-ons who did not sign with Tech and thus cannot be mentioned by name per NCAA rules.

The Hokies will play two fall tournaments, one at Penn State in early October and one in Blacksburg later that month.
