Prior to Wesley
After a stint as an assistant coach at Wesley under former head coach Debbie Windett, Lontz became the first women’s lacrosse head coach at Delaware State in 2011.

She led the team to a pair of conference victories in her final two seasons.
In her four-year career with the Wolverines, Lontz was a keystone player on the defensive end. At graduation, Lontz ranked fourth in program history in caused turnovers. A team captain, she was selected as the team's Most Valuable Player after her sophomore and junior campaigns.
