Allen Elevated to Associate Head Lacrosse Coach at Bates

Athletic Director Kevin McHugh announced that Heidi Allen, previously the assistant lacrosse coach at Bates, has been elevated to the position of associate head coach.

For the past five years, Allen has been highly involved in virtually every aspect of the program. She has had a tremendously positive impact on Bates women's lacrosse, and the new title reflects the length and breadth of her service but equally important, the positive difference that Allen has made with countless players and with the program.

Allen came to Bates from Middlebury College, where she served as assistant field hockey and lacrosse coach from 2007-2009. Prior to coaching at Middlebury, Allen spent two seasons as the head coach of the girls' lacrosse team at her alma mater, Choate Rosemary Hall, while also assisting the field hockey team.

At Middlebury, Allen earned three national All-American honors in both field hockey and lacrosse and was a member of the school's first and only NCAA Championship field hockey team in 1998. Allen graduated as the school record holder for most goals and points in a career, earning NESCAC Player of the Year honors and being named the Division III Field Hockey Honda Award winner in 1998.

On the lacrosse field, Allen was a member of NCAA title teams in 1997 and 1999. She earned National Player of the Year honors in 1999, along with being named the NESCAC Player of the Year, ECAC Player of the Year and NCAA Tournament MVP.
