Stephanie is one of two sophomores representing the Lady Scots this season. As a setter this season, she has already been awarded GSAC Player of the Week for her contribution to the Lady Scots success on the court. Before coming to Covenant, Stephanie played volleyball for Westminster Christian Academy where she was voted All-Area MVP (So., Jr., Sr.) and named to the All-Region team (Fr., So., Jr., Sr.). She was also a member on several club teams throughout high school: North Alabama Strikers Association (NASA), Alabama Elite, and Rocket City Volleyball Club (RCVC).
Her parents are Steve and Brenda Kirkpatrick. She has two sisters, Katie and Kelley. Outside of volleyball, Stephanie enjoys playing ping pong, going to Starbucks with friends, and reading. One of her favorite Bible verses is 2 Corinthians 12:9 which says, "But he said to me, 'My grace if sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.' Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weakness, so that Christ's power may rest on me."
Stephanie is a Mathematics major with a minor in Education. She plans to receive her Masters of Arts in Teaching at Covenant College and become a high school math teacher.
