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. In 1991, the Tigers advanced to the NCAA Tournament. After receiving her master's degree, DeLorenzo took a position at Oberlin College in Ohio as the head field hockey and lacrosse coach in the fall of 1992, becoming an assistant athletic director during her third and final year.

DeLorenzo began working at Skidmore College in the fall of 1995 as the head field hockey and lacrosse coach.

She earned a six-year record of 69-37 at Skidmore, including a school-record 18 wins in 1999 when she was named the NFCAA Regional Coach of the Year. That season, her team also captured the UCAA Championship.

Field Hockey Camps - Field Hockey Review Tamara Cameron. -Camper

It was soooo much fun! The coaches really pushed me but it was definitely worth it to make me grow as a player. I am now one of the better girls on my team. The other girls I met were all really nice and it was a fun experience to stay in a college dorm.
