NEW YORK – For the upcoming 2014-15 campaign,the Columbia women’s lacrosse coaching staff has added a new assistant coach in Lauren Kahn, as announced by head coach Liz Kittleman Jackson.

"We're so excited to have Lauren join the Columbia Lacrosse family, ” said Kittleman Jackson. “Coming from a Big East program having had a very successful playing career, Lauren brings unique insight to both ends of the field and an innate positivity that will be contagious to all those around her."
