Pollock Named to Scranton Women's Staff

from press release

-- Becky Davis, head women's lacrosse coach at The University of Scranton, has announced the appointment of former Monmouth University standout Alison Pollock as full-time assistant coach. Pollock joins the Royal coaching staff after spending the past season as an assistant coach at Oneonta State University.

"We are extremely excited to have Alison join our coaching staff," says Davis, "She brings tremendous playing and coaching experience to the program."

A native of Watervliet, New York, Pollock graduated from Monmouth with a Bachelor of Science degree in health studies in 2010. In four seasons as a member of the Hawks' women's lacrosse team, she started 69 of 71 games and finished her career seventh in assists (60) and ninth in total points (160) in Monmouth history. She also earned second-team all-Northeast Conference honors three times in her career (2008, 2009, 2010).

In her first season, in 2007, Pollock started 19 of 20 games and finished with 23 goals and four assists for 27 total points as the Hawks posted a 15-5 record and captured the Northeast Conference title. She served as team captain of the 2010 team and led the Hawks in goals (35), assists (13) and total points (48). In 2009, Pollock set a Monmouth single-game record with an 8-assist performance against Central Connecticut State University and tied another school mark in that game by finishing with 11 total points.

In four seasons, Pollock was a key member of Hawk team that posted an overall record of 44-30 (.595), including a 26-7 mark against Northeast Conference (NEC) opponents, and advanced to the NEC postseason tournament four times.

This past season, Scranton finished with a 10-6 record and advanced to the Landmark Conference postseason tournament for the second time in the league's four-year history. The Royals' 10 wins were the most for the program since 2006 and the seventh time in the program's 12-year history that Scranton won at least 10 games in a season.
