Stephanie Allen

Stephanie Allen will begin her ninth season at the helm in 2021. A Columbus, Ohio native, she took over the head coaching reigns in January 2013 and promptly produced BU’s first-ever first team all-conference player and two more all-rookie selections.

Allen guided the Bearcats to three wins over the course of the shortened 2020 season. Binghamton won its last two contests before COVID-19 ended spring sports, and Allen produced two America East All-Academic team members in Sam Fama and Paige Volkmann.

Prior, Allen and the Bearcats went a three-year stretch with 20 victories, the winningest stretch in program history. In 2018, Binghamton won eight games, also the most in program history. That season the Bearcats had a balanced offense, with five members scoring 20 or more goals. Allen guided Jacqueline Kennedy to an America East All-Conference First Team selection. Also under Allen, Rebecca Golderman (2017) and Allie Rodgers (2016) received the same accolade over the three-year stretch. The 2016 season also saw the program's first-ever America East Rookie of the Year in Golderman. The conference awarded Binghamton one first team, one second team, two All-Rookie, and two All-Academic selections to wrap up the team’s decorated season.

In 2014, Allen lead the team to seven wins and her team produced a first team all-conference selection and two all-rookie players. Her passionate, mentoring leadership model served to quickly unite the Bearcats, who made significant strides on and off the field. Allen also coached the program’s first-ever Under Armour/IWLCA North-South All-Star, Katherine Hunsberger.

As an assistant coach, Allen recruited an ESPN top-50 recruit and played a key role in the development of Binghamton’s first two-time America East all-conference selection, defender Siobhan Menz in 2009 and 2010. As the program’s academic liaison, Allen steered the 2011 squad to the top GPA in the America East for women’s lacrosse.

Prior coming to Binghamton in 2007, Allen was the inaugural head coach at Presbyterian College (S.C.), where she built an NCAA Division I program from the ground level in four years at the helm.

She graduated from Limestone College in 2003, earning a bachelor’s degree in graphic design and studio art. Allen then earned her master’s degree in sports management from SUNY Cortland in 2010.

At Limestone, Allen was a captain and four-year starting midfielder.

Allen has been very active throughout campus and in the community. She served as the Director of the Broome County Girls Lacrosse Club and Youth League from 2007-2012 and currently sits on the Section IV Board of Women’s Lacrosse Officials, helping grow the sport throughout the Binghamton area. She is a member of the Women In Sports and Events (WISE) organization and was featured on their website this past September in the Member Spotlight segment. Allen also recently served on the University’s Presidential Yield Task Force Committee and has shared her expertise as a member of the Celebrating Women’s Athletics Committee.

Head Coach Stephanie Allen on Hartshorn: "We are thrilled to welcome Kali to the Bearcat family. We are very eager for the new things she can bring to our program through her experiences at Maryland and the competitive environment in which she played. Kali has a coaching approach that will work well with our team as she is young, innovative and will push our players in terms of attitude and mindset just as much as on-field play. Her expertise in the draw area, as well as, the offensive end will help bring fresh ideas and strategies to these units."
