Twelve years after graduating, in a sport where records fall like leaves in autumn, Stephanie to this day, holds the AB School Record in the Butterfly (56.58). Stephanie was a two-time United States All-American Swimmer, an award which is only presented if you are one of the top thirty swimmers in the country. To reach such lofty status at Acton-Boxboro, Stephanie was twice named a Boston Globe All-Scholastic and was 1983 Massachusetts State Swimmer of the Year. According to Coach Bob Asquith, "Stephanie was one of the classiest competitors that ever swam for Acton-Boxboro. She always went after the best." It was that competitive nature that won Stephanie a scholarship to Stanford University.
She could have been a big fish in a little pond in almost any other program in the country. However, her inner fire earned her college All-American honors in 1985. That same year at Stanford she won Stanford's meritorious Dolphin Award given annually to the team's most inspirational swimmer. Graduating with a B.S. degree in Math, Stephanie spent a semester in Florence, Italy. Upon returning, Stephanie entered Stanford's Masters Program from which she now holds a M.Ed. In keeping with her high standards of achievement, Stephanie has been named to the Who's Who of American Teachers. Stephanie was married to her husband Jose in 1989 and have a son Tres, and are expecting a second child. Stephanie is a High School Math Teacher at Liberty High School in Brentwood, California. Her most memorable moment at AB was winning the 1982 State Swimming Championship. "Our team had always been good, but that year we were great... the best part was the thrill of finally being the best team."
