Lori Shulman begins her fifth season as the head coach of Trinity College's men's and women's tennis teams in 2019-20, after serving as an assistant coach for both programs during the 2014-15 season. Over her first four seasons, no less than 47 Bantams have been named as Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) All-Academic Award recipients, including four men and two women in the spring of 2019. Shulman's teams have also both earned the ITA All-Academic Team awards in all her first three campaigns. She mentored a pair of All-NESCAC performers in 2016, as Ford Traff and Rex Glickman earned the accolade as a men's doubles tandem, and Vanja Babunski was an NCAA Singles Championships alternate in 2017. Shulman has led the Trinity men's squad to a 22-34 record in dual matches including a 3-11 mark last season. She has guided the Bantam women's team to a 17-38 record over that same span, including a 4-10 record in 2018-19.
Shulman joined the Bantam staff after four highly-successful years as an assistant coach working with both the men’s and women’s teams at Denison University where she mentored several NCAA All-Americans. Prior to Denison, Shulman served as the head coach of the women’s tennis team at the College of Wooster for six years. Her first post-graduate coaching experience came at Hamilton, where she was an assistant tennis and squash coach for two seasons.
Shulman graduated with a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Denison in 1999 where she was a three-sport athlete. In June of 2002, Shulman earned a master’s degree in coaching education from Ohio University after working as a graduate assistant within the athletic department. She was accepted in the NCAA Women's Coaches' Academy in the summer of 2016, and is an assistant professor in the Trinity athletic department.
