Lauryn Pehanich

Head Coach


Lauryn Pehanich enters her sixth season as La Verne’s head women’s soccer coach.


The Leopards showed immediate improvement under Pehanich’s guidance in her first season. The Leopards went 9-10-1 overall and was 6-7-1 in the SCIAC in 2013, a five-win improvement in both categories from 2012, and just missed out on the SCIAC Championship Tournament by one game.


In 2017, the Leopards posted their best record in four seasons, ending 9-10-1 overall and 6-7-1 in SCIAC play. The Leopards were led by All-West Region and First Team All-SCIAC selections Jessica Hernandez and Alina Cobian.


Pehanich has coached a total of 11 Leopards on to All-SCIAC Teams and two All-West Region selections. Pehanich comes to La Verne from Cal State Fullerton, where she enjoyed a successful five-year stint as an assistant coach at her alma mater.
