2012-13: Senior
One of the most productive players in Nebraska tennis history, Stefanie Weinstein closed her career by helping the Huskers to the best season in school history. The consummate team player, Weinstein closed her final season as the school record holder with 97 career doubles victories. Her 186 combined career singles and doubles wins also ranked No. 2 in school history, trailing only All-American teammate Mary Weatherholt on that list.

As a senior, Weinstein teamed with fellow German Janine Weinreich for a school-record-tying 28 doubles victories to help the Huskers to their first NCAA Sweet 16. She added 23 singles wins, including a 7-2 Big Ten mark to help NU to a regular-season conference championship. She went 17-6 during the spring.

The native of Much, Germany captured second-team All-Big Ten honors, while producing 51 combined wins as a senior, which tied for fourth on Nebraska's season combined wins list.

Weinstein held a 28-6 doubles record in 2012-13, including 27-2 overall and 11-0 in conference play in the spring. She and Weinreich primarily played from the No. 2 doubles position, but added two victories at the No. 1 spot. The spring sweep included two triumphs over ranked opponents against then-No. 41 Caitlyn Williams and Joanna Henderson of Tennessee and No. 45 Ronit Yurovsky and Sarah Lee of Michigan.

An outstanding performer in the classroom, Weinstein graduated with better than a 3.9 GPA from Nebraska in May of 2013 after majoring in business administration. She was a Big Ten Distinguished Scholar and earned academic All-Big Ten honors in 2012 and 2013, while helping the team earn the Herman Award for highest team GPA among all NU women’s sports both seasons. 

2011-12: Junior
Weinstein paired with senior Madeleine Geibert to produce one of the best doubles teams in Nebraska history. The duo finished the 2011-12 season at No. 38 in the final ITA doubles rankings after finishing the year with a 26-8 record. Weinstein and Geibert went 20-5 during the spring, including 8-3 in Big Ten play.

Overall, Weinstein finished with a 29-8 doubles record as a junior to set the Nebraska record for individual doubles wins in a season. Weinstein's 26 doubles wins with Geibert made them the winningest tandem in school history with 65 career wins together over the past three seasons.

While Weinstein's accomplishments with Geibert on the doubles court take center stage, her singles success is somewhat unsung. The native of Much, Germany produced an impressive 25-7 overall singles mark in 2012, including a 22-3 record on the spring. She raced to a 7-2 regular-season Big Ten mark, going 6-1 at the No. 4 spot in Big Ten play and 1-1 at No. 3 with a win over Northwestern's Belinda Niu.

Weinstein's 54 combined victories as a junior trailed only teammate Mary Weatherholt's school-record 56 for the best overall year in NU history.

A standout in the classroom as well, Weinstein was one of seven Huskers to capture academic All-Big Ten honors in 2012 while helping the women's tennis team claim Nebraska's Herman Award.

2010-11: Sophomore
Weinstein showed marked improvement in her second season at Nebraska, posting stronger records in both singles and doubles play during the spring. Weinstein was a mainstay in Nebraska's lineup at the No. 3 position, where she finished with an impressive 17-5 record and an overall mark of 19-6 in the fall and spring combined. She finished the year on a five-match winning streak that included victories over opponents from Tulsa, Texas and Texas Tech. 

Weinstein appeared alongside Geibert in doubles throughout the season. The duo went 16-7 during the spring and spent much of the latter half of the season in the ITA Women's Doubles Rankings, peaking at No. 71 overall. They also defeated three ranked opponents, including an upset of Iowa's No. 33 Sonja Molnar and Jessica Young, 8-4.

Weinstein claimed first-team academic All-Big 12 honors and earned selections to the Big 12 Commissioner's Honor Roll in both the fall and spring semesters. She also helped the tennis program captured the Herman Award, presented to the Nebraska women's team with the highest grade-point average during the academic year. Weinstein was awarded ITA Scholar-Athlete honors following the spring semester.

2009-10: Freshman
Weinstein was one of Nebraska’s top competitors in 2009-10, as she compiled an overall record of 18-14 that included 13 wins during the spring season. Weinstein played almost exclusively at the No. 4 position, where she accumulated six conference wins for the Huskers.

Weinstein was also one of NU’s strongest doubles players on the season. She competed alongside Geibert all season at the No. 1 position, and the duo gathered a team-high 14 victories. Weinstein captured a spot on the All-Big 12 Doubles Team at the conclusion of 2010.

Weinstein also excelled academically in 2009-10, earning a spot on the Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll in the fall and spring semesters with a perfect 4.0 grade-point average.

Before Nebraska
Weinstein played for the German club team Bayer-Leverkusen, while she attended Wuembrecht High School in Tespe, Germany. She was ranked as high as No. 41 in the German national rankings.
