Allison Named Becker Head Field Hockey Coach

LEICESTER, Mass. - Becker College Director of Athletics Frank Millerick has announced the appointment of Meighan Allison as the head field hockey coach at Becker College.

"My family and I are extremely excited about joining the Hawk family," said Allison. "I want to thank Frank Millerick for the opportunity that we have been provided and I look forward to taking the field hockey program to that next level of success."

Allison was a three-year letter winner for the University of Rhode Island field hockey team, earning Rhode Island's Team Senior Award in 1995. She graduated from the school with a bachelor's degree in arts and sciences (with a concentration in journalism) in 1999.

Allison was the head field hockey coach at Franklin Pierce University for nine seasons. During her time in Rindge, the team recorded at least nine wins in three straight seasons (2009-11), narrowly missing the program record (11) each time and giving Allison three of the five nine-win seasons in the program's 17-year history. She also previously spent six seasons as the head coach of the school's women's lacrosse team.

Before taking over at Franklin Pierce, Allison served multiple roles at Worcester State as a coach with both the field hockey and lacrosse programs. She served as head coach of the Lancers field hockey program from 2001-05, posting a record of 56-43 (.566) in five seasons, leading the team to three ECAC Division III Tournament appearances (2001, 2002, 2004). Allison was Worcester State's assistant coach for two seasons prior to taking over as head coach.

"I am confident that Meighan Allison will be a great leader for our field hockey program at Becker," said Frank Millerick. "She is a proven coach at the collegiate level and brings a wealth of experience to this position. I am very excited that she will be joining our team and look forward to her taking the field hockey program to the next level."
