Allegheny Names Monnier Head Coach

MEADVILLE, Pa. - Allegheny College director of athletics Portia Hoeg has announced the elevation of Pam Monnier to the position of head women's soccer coach.
 
Monnier joined the soccer staff as an assistant in July 2015, before serving the 2016 campaign as the women's soccer interim head coach.
 
"I want to thank Portia, the search committee, and the Allegheny administration for giving me this unbelievable opportunity to lead the women's soccer program and  remain a part of the Allegheny Athletics family," said Monnier.  "I would also like to thank former head coach Mike Webber for his mentorship, and for giving me the opportunity to work as his assistant coach.  I am thrilled to take over a program built upon a championship culture, and I look forward to the opportunity to continue the program on the path of success."

"Women's soccer has been a marquee program for Allegheny College for several years," said Hoeg.  "Pam has demonstrated an understanding of who we are as an institution, and how we can continue to pursue excellence on and off the playing field.  I am excited to see where she leads Gator soccer as she has had the opportunity to learn from several great coaches.  She is a strong, young coach with a wonderful work ethic, and is ready to manage a championship-level program."

During Monnier's interim season, the Gators finished 6-10-1 overall and 3-5-1 in the North Coast Athletic Conference, a two-game improvement from the prior season, and were in contention for a berth in the league's four-team championship tournament until the final day of the season.  
 
Three Gators earned All-NCAC honors, including First Team selection Jessie Thiessen, Second Team pick Colleen Fleming, and Honorable Mention selection Sam Brooks.  A forward, Thiessen ranked among the conference's leading scorers throughout the season, ending with 24 points on nine goals and six assists.  In her first season at the goalkeeping position, Fleming turned in a sparkling season.  The converted midfielder earned two of the three legs of the NCAC's goalkeeping 'triple crown', as she led the conference in both saves (127) and save percentage (.852), while she placed third in the league with a 1.32 goals against average.  Brooks led the Allegheny backline, as the defender started every game and led the team in minutes played, playing every minute of 16 of 17 games, while pacing a Gator defense that posted four shutouts, and allowed fewer than two goals in nine different matches.
 
In her first season as an assistant at Allegheny, six different Gators received All-NCAC honors, while the team's defense posted a goals-against average of 1.51, and recorded five shutouts. Under Monnier's guidance, then-sophomore keeper Christina Gallagher finished in the top-five in the NCAC in both goals-against (0.94) and save percentage (.842).   
 
A native of East Northport, New York, Monnier came to Allegheny after spending two seasons on the women's soccer coaching staff at Vassar College.  During her tenure, the Brewers went a combined 17-14-4, including a berth in the Liberty League playoffs in 2013, their first postseason trip since 2010.  Over Monnier's two years, Vassar players earned a total of five All-Liberty League accolades, including 2014 All-ECAC and NSCAA All-Region honoree Chloe Wheeler.
 
Prior to working at Vassar, Monnier worked at her alma mater, SUNY-Cortland, in multiple roles during 2012-13.  As a coach, she assisted with various duties on the women's soccer staff, including arranging travel, recruiting, and mentoring the Red Dragon goalkeepers, as the squad went 12-5-6 and advanced to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Division III playoffs.  She also held positions on the Cortland athletic leadership retreat staff and athletic events staff, while serving as assistant director for summer sports camps.   
 
As an undergraduate, Monnier was a four-time First Team All-Conference honoree at Cortland, starting 79 of a possible 81 games in goal for the Red Dragons.  Named both the State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) and Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Player of the Year in 2011, Monnier finished with a career record of 43-23-14, totaling 31 career shutouts (including a SUNYAC-leading 11 in 2011), while allowing just 64 goals and making 314 career saves, a Cortland team record. Team captain as both a junior and senior, Monnier helped the Red Dragons reach the Elite Eight of the NCAA Division-III National Playoffs in 2011.  She graduated from Cortland with honors with a degree in physical education.
 
"I am honored to be a part of a department with such a high level of dedication to its student-athletes and to compete within the North Coast Athletic Conference," Monnier said.  "The future of the Allegheny women's soccer program is bright, and I'm excited for what we can accomplish on the field, in the classroom, and beyond."

Monnier is the fifth head coach in the 31-year history of the Allegheny women's soccer program, following John Wilcher (1985-97), Jeff Groff (1998-2001), Paul Bonus (2002-2004), and Mike Webber (2005-15).
