Alison Koning ’14, a former Mount Ida College multi-sport athlete, has served as Assistant to the Athletic Director since the 2015-16 school year. She assists the athletic department with contest management, day to day operations, and purchasing, among other assigned tasks.

Koning began her tenure as the recipient of a two-year NCAA Ethnic Minority and Women Internship Grant, joining the Mustang staff on July 27, 2015. After the expiration of her grant, Koning was brought aboard as a full-time staff member in the same role beginning in 2017.

A double Mustang, Koning received her Master’s Degree in Sports Leadership in 2014 after graduating Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s Degree a year before. While at school, she was a student assistant with the athletic department, and she returned to the Mustangs after graduating to assist with game-day contest management and serve as an assistant women’s lacrosse coach. Koning was active in the Student Athletic Advisory Committee (SAAC) as a student-athlete and received the Jacqueline Palmer Award for Leadership.

A native of Carlisle, Mass., Koning was a three year member of the Mount Ida women’s lacrosse program and a two-year women’s soccer player for the Mustangs.

In 47 games played on the women’s lacrosse team, she picked up 108 ground balls, good for 5th in the Mustang record books, while her 46 caused turnovers is 6th all-time. Her 1157 minutes played in 2013 is the most for a Mustang in a single season, and in 2014 she scored career highs with seven goals and ten points. Koning scored six goals in two seasons on the women’s soccer team, including five goals and three assists in 16 games in 2012.
