Sarah Lautenbach is in her fourth year with Fresno State as an assistant lacrosse coach.

The 2015 season was a special one for Lautenbach and the Bulldogs, as their four wins set a program record. Midfielder Caroline Dineen-Carlson was named to the All-MPSF Second Team after setting a program record with 30 goals on the season. 10 Bulldogs also earned MPSF All-Academic honors. 

While working with the defensive unit last season, Lautenbach's group recorded 207 groundballs, five shy of the season-best which it set during her first season in 2013. The 'Dogs also caused 86 turnovers, their second-highest total in the category since 2010.

In her first year, she helped lead the Bulldog defense to a season-high 212 groundballs. The team also recorded 90 caused turnovers, the highest in three seasons.

Under her tutelage, three individuals (Sophia Aragon, Lisa Barnaba and Holly Cisneros) have posted single-season groundball totals that are in the top of eight in the program's history. Holly Cisneros has recorded two of them, with 26 in 2013 and 22 in 2014, on her way to claiming the most groundballs in a career by a Bulldog in just three seasons.

Before joining the `Dogs in 2012, Lautenbach was a volunteer assistant lacrosse coach at Drexel University, where the team was 2012 CAA Tournament Qualifiers.

Prior to coaching at Drexel, Lautenbach was the head lacrosse coach at Holy Family University from 2009-2011. In her first year as head coach she improved the team's record from 0-12 to a 10-7 overall record; setting an NCAA record for the most improved record from a previous season. In 2011, she continued the team's success by making it to the CACC tournament for the second season in a row.

As a player at Old Dominion University, Lautenbach started as a midfielder under previous US National Team's Coach Sue Stahl.

A native of West Chester, PA, Lautenbach graduated with a bachelors degree in criminology and a minor in sociology from Old Dominion University in 2007. She also currently holds an NCCA accredited certification from the American Council on Exercise in Personal Training and is currently working towards her Nutrition Specialist certification.
