Megan Leo

Megan Leo enters her third season at the helm of the NEC women's lacrosse team in the 2017-18 academic year.

In 2017, Leo led the Pilgrims to the North Atlantic Conference (NAC) championship game for the first time in five years on the strength of an 8-1 conference record. She also saw two players earn major conference awards--Allison Granata was tabbed the Player of the Year, while Mackenzie Meegan was named the Defensive Player of the Year. Granata, also standout in the classroom, became the program's first CoSIDA Academic All-American.

In her first season as head coach, Leo lead the Pilgrims to an 11-8 overall record, finishing 6-2 in the North Atlantic Conference. The Pilgrims’ season ended in the semifinals with a heartbreaking overtime loss to Colby-Sawyer. Leo coached three NAC first team all-conference selections, as well as two second team all-conference players, and the NAC Rookie of the Year.

Leo served as the interim head women’s lacrosse coach during the fall of 2015. Prior to her stint as interim head coach, Leo served as an assistant coach for the women’s lacrosse program at NEC for five seasons. Her responsibilities have included facilitation of practices, recruiting and working closely with the team with their fundraising and community service.

Leo graduated from New England College in December 2007 with her degree in Secondary Education with a concentration in English. Leo was a four-year starter on the women’s lacrosse team, playing in 63 games and accumulating eight goals, 57 ground balls and 27 caused turnovers over her career. She continued on to earn her Master's degree in Education from NEC in 2009.
