Lauren Palmer begins her first season with the Colorado State softball program in 2014, serving as a volunteer assistant coach.

Palmer (formerly Lauren Schutzler) was a four-year starter in center field for the Arizona Wildcats, making three Women's College World Series appearances. Throughout her career, she earned multiple individual honors, including being named 2009 NFCA All-Pacific Region and to the 2008 All-Pac-10 Freshman team. Following college, Palmer competed with USA Softball during the summer of 2010, in addition to a season with Unione Fermana, a professional team in Montegranaro, Italy.

Away from the field, Palmer earned Academic All-Pac-10 team honors each year, in addition to earning Arizona's Life Skills Award and Community Service Award. She was also a member of SAAC with the Wildcats, as well.

Prior to college, she was named to the 2006 NFCA All-America first team, and helped her club team, the Worth Firecrackers, to the 2007 ASA 18-under gold national championship.

As a coach, she has spent a season with the Salinas Storm - an 18-under gold-level club team - and Notre Dame High School - her alma mater. With Notre Dame, she helped her team to a sectional championship.

Palmer, who was born in Monterey, Calif., graduated from the Arizona in 2011 with a major in history and minor in sociology. She comes from a very athletic family, as her sister, Lindsay Bell, was an All-America softball player at Tennessee, her father, Lyndon Schutzler, played baseball at UC Santa Barbara, her mother, Vicki Schutzler, ran track at Southwest Missouri State and is a member of the school's hall of fame, and her uncle played baseball at Arizona and Cal Lutheran.

Palmer was married to Ronnie Palmer Jr., in August 2013. Ronnie Palmer played football at Arizona, where the two met, and is currently a graduate assistant coach with the CSU football team.
