Jeff Vautrin is in his first season as head women's volleyball coach at Lasell in 2020-21. A 2017 Lasell graduate and former standout for the Laser men’s volleyball team, Vautrin is also in his second year as head coach of the Lasell men's program.
Vautrin led the men's team to a 10-12 overall record in 2020 before the season ended prematurely due to the coronavirus. He coached three Lasers who earned All-GNAC honors, including a pair of Second Team All-Stars in Scott Sterenberg and Jesus Garcia and Third Team honoree Cobi Moore. Vautrin previously served as an assistant for two years with the Lasell men’s team and one year with the women’s program.
In addition, Vautrin has served as an assistant coach for the Acton-Boxborough boys’ and girls’ volleyball programs, helping the teams win conference championships both seasons. He has been involved in coaching club volleyball teams in New England as well.
Vautrin played three and a half seasons for the Lasers from 2014-17, missing the second half of the 2016 season with an injury that granted him an extra year due to a medical hardship. He became just the second player in program history to record 1,000 kills, and finished with 1,064 career kills. Vautrin was a three-time selection to the All-Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) Team, including twice on the First Team. He was named to the GNAC All-Tournament Team in 2014, and was a key player on the 2015 Laser squad that captured the GNAC championship and advanced to the NCAA Tournament.
A native of Chicopee, Mass., Vautrin was also the New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) Rookie of the Year and Tournament MVP his freshman year while playing at Elms College before transferring to Lasell.
