Make that "Stephanie Makes FOUR"

Stephanie Schappert's (Boca Raton, FL) recent signing with Villanova was dubbed in this blog "Stephanie Makes Three" -- referring to her All-American sister Nicole and her All-American father Ken who preceded her on the track at Villanova. The truth is that Stephanie will make the fourth in the family to compete at a high level for Villanova athletics. Her mother Jane (nee Ackerman), shown above at Stephanie's letter-of-intent signing ceremony earlier in February, competed for Villanova in the late 1970s and was the first Villanova women to earn All-American honors. As a high school All-American swimmer at Cardinal Newman High School in West Palm Beach, Florida, Jane Ackerman was named to the 1973 Girls High School All American team for her prowess in the 100 yard breaststroke; in that year she had the second fastest time in the United States. She won three straight Florida state championships in the 100 breaststroke in 1971, 1972, and 1973.
