Kuhlman, Holthaus Join the Lacrosse Coaching Staff at Findlay

The University of Findlay women's lacrosse team has added two new staff members as Sara Kuhlman and Andrea Holthaus will join the program as assistant coaches for the 2015 campaign.

Kuhlman has served as the co-head coach for the Velocity Lacrosse Club since 2012. The team is a competitive travel unit formed with high schools girls from southern Ohio.

The Cincinnati, Ohio native played lacrosse at High Point University in High Point, N.C. where she was a three-time first team all-league pick. She ended her career as the all-time leader in draw controls and was a three-time scholar athlete while earning her bachelor's degree in health and physical education.

Kuhlman was also a standout during her prep years at Mt. Notre Dame High School in Cincinnati, Ohio. She ended her career as the programs all-time scoring leader and earned all-Ohio honors in the process.

Holthaus was a four-year letter winner for the Oilers volleyball team and is ranked 11th all-time at UF with 285 total blocks. She appeared in 310 sets during her tenure with the program and also racked up 243 kills.

HIGH POINT, N.C. – Former High Point University lacrosse midfielder Sara Kuhlman has been named an assistant coach at the University of Findlay for the 2015 campaign.

A member of High Point's first class, Kuhlman helped lead the Panthers to two NCAA Tournament appearances (2013, 2014) and four conference titles during her HPU career.

The Cincinnati product now returns to her native Ohio to begin her collegiate coaching career with the Oilers.

“There's no better way to continue moving into the lacrosse world than to carry on what my coaches have taught me here at High Point,” Kuhlman said. “The lessons that I learned during my time as a student-athlete are invaluable. HPU prepared me well for a career in coaching and I'm excited to bring what I've learned to Findlay.”

A four-time all-conference selection, Kuhlman is HPU's all-time leader in draw controls. She finished her career with 157 points on 114 goals and 43 assists, including a career-best 49 points (18g, 49a) as a senior.

One of the most decorated Panthers on and off the field in program history, Kuhlman earned Millis Scholar-Athlete honors on three occasions during her HPU career and was named to the Big South Presidential Honor Roll as a junior. She graduated in May with a degree in health and physical education.

“My High Point experience means everything to me,” Kulhman said. “If I could do it all over again, I would do it exactly the same way. Being part of the first class in program history and winning a championship every year is something I'll value forever.”
