Junior Stefanie 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. In her three-year career, Weinstein has registered 135 combined victories, placing her sixth in Nebraska history and third among current Huskers. Geibert owns the NU record with 181 combined wins, while Weatherholt has notched 156.
A standout in the classroom as well, Weinstein owns nearly a 3.9 GPA as a business administration major. She was one of seven Huskers to capture academic All-Big Ten honors in 2012.
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 teammate Madeleine 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.

Weinstein was also one of NU’s strongest doubles players on the season. She competed alongside Madeleine 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.
