Lori Shulman begins her fourth season as the head coach of Trinity College's men's and women's tennis teams in 2018-19, after serving as an assistant coach for both programs during the 2014-15 season. Shulman led the Trinity men's squad to a 19-23 record in dual matches including a 6-7 mark last season. She has guided the Bantam women's team to a 13-28 record over that same span, including a 4-9 record and a No. 40 national ranking in the final Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Division III Poll.
Over her first three seasons, no less than 41 Bantams have been named as Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) All-Academic Award recipients, including seven men and seven women in the spring of 2017. 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 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.
