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.
