Lauren Schwarzmann, a former standout at Johns Hopkins, begins her third season at the University of Cincinnati.
Schwarzmann was selected to represent the U.S. as a member of the senior women's national lacrosse team in August, 2010. The 36-player squad was chosen after a three-day tryout at the University of Maryland. Schwarzmann earned a spot as a midfielder on the team and will train for the 2013 Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) World Cup.
A four-year starter and four-time all-conference selection for the Blue Jays, Schwarzmann was on the Tewaaraton Trophy (the top individual award in women's lacrosse) watch list in 2008. An all-region selection in 2007 as a midfielder, she was selected to play in the North/South College Senior All-Star game. Schwarzmann finished her Johns Hopkins career with 79 goals, 39 assists, and 118 points, ranking in the Top 10 in school history in all three categories. Schwarzmann is also a member of the US Women's National Team and has been a part of the program since her '07-'08 senior season.
Schwarzmann has played for and coached with UC head coach Lellie Swords when the two were at Hopkins. Swords was an associate head coach with the Blue Jays and the Director of the Jays Lacrosse club team, a middle school girls squad. Schwarzmann was recruited by Swords to JHU and was an assistant coach for the Jays club team.
Schwarzmann graduated in the spring of 2008 with a degree in public health studies. Schwarzmann plays an integral part in the growth of lacrosse in the Greater Cincinnati area, running camps and leagues through the 513 Lacrosse organization and the Natilax Elite club team. She will handle the offensive coordinator duties at UC, and recruiting. She aids in fundraising, team academics and video exchange.
