STAFF DETAILS

Jill Dixon, most recently the associate head coach and recruiting coordinator at Wesley College in Dover, Del., enters year two as the head coach at The College of Wooster in 2019.

Dixon’s impact on the program was felt immediately, as Wooster won six more games than the season prior, and advanced to the championship game of the North Coast Athletic Conference Tournament for the first time since 2010. Three Scots were named to the National Field Hockey Coaches Association All-Great Lakes Region Team, while five garnered All-NCAC honors.

Dixon started at Wesley as an assistant coach in 2014, and was elevated to the program’s associate head coach and recruiting coordinator for the 2017 season. While with the Wolverines, Dixon’s student-athletes earned seven All-Capital Athletic Conference certificates, and competed in a league consistently in the upper echelon of Div. III field hockey conferences. CAC institutions have captured four national championships in the 2000s, and have had three teams ranked, or a combination of ranked and those receiving votes, in the year-end NFHCA poll in four of Dixon’s five years in Dover.

Among the highlights from Dixon’s tenure at Wesley was the play of senior back Emily Wagner, who tied for the national lead with 12 defensive saves in 2017.

Dixon is familiar with the NCAC, and in fact, squared off against Wooster four times during a two-year stint as the lead assistant at Oberlin College. While with the Yeowomen, Dixon tutored a quintet of All-NCAC honorees, including Claire Yeske, who went on to earn all-region honors from the NFHCA.

Dixon’s coaching career started at Smith College, where she spent two years. A trio of Pioneers earned All-New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference certificates during Dixon’s stint in Northampton, Mass.

Outside of the collegiate ranks, Dixon has coaching experience with USA Field Hockey’s Futures Program. Originally a selector, Dixon has climbed the ladder and most recently served as the head coach for the Delaware region. Dixon holds a USA Field Hockey Level II coaching certification.

As a student-athlete, Dixon was a two-sport standout at Randolph-Macon College. In field hockey, Dixon was a four-year starter and earned a trio of All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference certificates. She played both forward and midfielder, and led the Yellow Jackets in points as a junior with 18, and logged 30 career goals. Dixon was also a two-year starter on the women’s lacrosse team.

Dixon, a double-major as an undergraduate, earned her bachelor’s in biology and mathematics from Randolph-Macon in 2009, and a master’s in sport leadership from Wesley in 2017
