VESTAL, N.Y.—Binghamton women’s lacrosse coach Stephanie Allen has added Allison Daley as an assistant coach, the university announced on Wednesday.
Daley, a former Canadian National Team member, comes directly from Canisius College, where she served as an assistant for the last two years.
“I am extremely excited to have Allison join the staff and know that she is going to be a great fit,” Allen said. “She brings a great deal of knowledge with her on the defense end of the field and in the goal. Her passion for the game and dedication to the student-athletes will help her make an immediate impact with this program. I am thrilled that she has accepted the offer to be a part of this new era for Binghamton women’s lacrosse.”
The Peterborough, Ontario native played a key role as defense coach and recruiting coordinator at Canisius. She helped build a Griffs program that won back-to-back Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) titles and advanced to the NCAA tournament in each of her years. Canisius went 14-5 last spring, equaling the school record for wins and returning to the NCAAs for the third straight year. Daley recruited and coached the 2012 MAAC Defensive Player of the Year and in two seasons, coached seven all-conference players.
Daley was an elite goaltender and team captain who enjoyed a decorated playing career. She was a member of Canada’s U19 National Team before embarking on a successful four-year undergraduate career at Canisius. She was the MAAC Defensive Player of the Year in 2010 and earned MAAC Tournament MVP honors after leading the Griffs to their first-ever conference title in 2011. She was a three-time All-MAAC selection and became the program’s first-ever IWLCA all-region pick as a senior. Daley twice earned all-championship team honors and graduated holding school records for career saves (662) and goals against average (11.66).
She was Canisius’ Woman of the Year nominee and was a finalist for MAAC Female Student-Athlete of the Year in 2011.
Off the field, Daley served as president of SAAC and was an active member of both the school’s Intercollegiate Athletics Board and Student Senate.
She has co-directed lacrosse camps at Canisius and has served as an instructor at Syracuse University lacrosse camps as well as Buffalo-area high schools.
She received her bachelor’s degree in psychology from Canisius in 2011 and went on to receive her master’s degree in sport administration in 2013.
