Shrieve hired by 'Eaters

Stephanie Shrieve has been named associate athletic director/senior

woman administrator at UC Irvine, UCI Athletic Director Bob

Chichester said Friday.

Shrieve joins the UCI staff after serving in a similar position at

Saint Mary's College in Moraga, Calif., the past four years. At UCI,

she will serve as member of the athletic department's senior

management team and also will be part of the chancellor's advisory

committee on intercollegiate athletics.

In conjunction with the director of athletics, she will provide

leadership and assistance for department staff's compliance with

department, campus, conference, NCAA, and government rules,

regulations, and policies. Shrieve will provide administrative

supervision to several of UCI's athletic programs and will serve as

the university's senior woman administrator to the NCAA and Big West


"We are very excited about Stephanie joining our staff here at

UCI," Chichester said. "Stephanie's experience, personality, and

professional vision will provide her with an opportunity to

successfully contribute to our athletic programs and to the UCI

community. Stephanie is highly thought of by the people with whom she

has worked. Our staff members are very much looking forward to a

chance to work with her and I know that students and others

associated with our programs will welcome the opportunity to interact

with her."

Prior to her service at Saint Mary's, Shrieve was the director of

athletic development, annual fund and fundraising for Olympic sports

at UC Berkeley from 1998-2000. She was an assistant women's

volleyball coach at Cal from 1997-98.

"I am truly privileged to join such an enthusiastic team of people

in the UCI Athletic Department," Shrieve said. "Southern California

is my home away from home, and I am looking forward to returning and

building relationships at UCI and in the Orange County community.

"As a Big West Conference alumna, I am excited to be a part of its

competitiveness, and supporting the student-athletes and coaches at

UCI to represent the conference at the highest level in Division I


Shrieve was a four-year competitor in volleyball at Cal State

Fullerton from 1988-91. She ranks second in the Titans' record book

for career assists (3,388) and service aces (108) and is also in

Fullerton's top 10 for career block assists and digs. She was the

Titans' team captain as a junior and senior and was a Big West

Scholar-Athlete each of those years.

Shrieve, who is expected to begin her new position in early

September, replaces Petrina Long, who accepted a similar position at

UCLA in May.
