DeLorenzo enters her 13th season as the head coach of the Panther field hockey program. She came to Middlebury after serving as the head field hockey and lacrosse coach at Skidmore for the previous six seasons.

DeLorenzo has led the Panthers to tremendous success over the past 12 years, including an impressive 177-46 record. In that time, the Panthers advanced to the NCAA Championship game on four occasions. She earned New England Coach of the Year honors in '03 and '04, while being deemed the NCAA Division III National Coach of the Year in '03. The team also captured the '03 and '12 NESCAC titles.

DeLorenzo graduated from Goucher College in 1990, where she was an All-American field hockey and lacrosse player, as well as a swimmer. She was inducted into the school's Hall of Fame in the spring of '13.

Following graduation, she attended Indiana State University where she earned her master's degree in athletic administration in '92. While at Indiana State, she began her coaching career with a two-year stint as an assistant field hockey coach for Depauw University in Greencastle, Indiana, where the team advanced to the NCAA Tournament in '91. After receiving her master's, DeLorenzo took a position at Oberlin College in Ohio as the head field hockey and lacrosse coach in the fall of '92, becoming an assistant athletic director during her third and final year.

DeLorenzo began working at Skidmore College in the fall of '95 as the head field hockey and lacrosse coach. She led the field hockey team to NCAA Tournament appearances in '98 and '99 and was named the UCAA (Upstate Collegiate Athletic Association) Coach of the Year in both of those seasons. She earned a six-year record of 69-37 at Skidmore, including a school-record 18 wins in '99 when she was named the NFCAA Regional Coach of the Year. That season, her team also captured the UCAA Championship.

She is an active member of several field hockey national committees, including stints with several rules committees, such as the IWLCA (Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association) National Rules Committee, on which she currently serves. DeLorenzo directs clinics on Middlebury's campus throughout the year. She is also the director of two Nike field hockey camps as well as being involved with the USFHA (United States Field Hockey Association) Futures Program.
