Meaghan Neylon is beginning her third season at Georgetown in 2017.

Neylon helped mentor goalkeeper Rachel Skonecki who ranked sixth nationally in save percentage while posting eight wins in 2015, including four shutouts, the most by a Hoya since the 1994 season in 2015. She works with all of the keepers and has coached current starter Chloe Verwiel.

Prior to Georgetown, Neylon spent two seasons as an assistant coach at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia. While there, she was responsible for goalkeeper and midfield development, academic progress, recruiting, team travel, budget and film analysis. In her second season, she mentored goalkeeper Lauren Bernard who set career highs in games, minutes, goals against average, saves percentage, wins and shutouts en route to earning 2014 All-Mid-American Conference First Team honors, the first Lancer keeper to do so.

A native of Fredericksburg, Virginia, Neylon graduated with a bachelor's degree in psychology from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2013 where she was a four-year letterwinner for the Rams as a midfielder and back from 2009-12. As a senior, Neylon was part of the third-best turnaround in NCAA Division I under current Georgetown Head Coach Shannon Soares. The Rams won 13 games that year, the second-most in school history.

While at VCU, Neylon appeared in 62 games totaling 14 points with six goals and two assists, including a career-best four goals and nine points in 2012.

Neylon began her coaching career with the High Voltage Field Hockey Club in Fredericksburg, which is part of the USA Futures program.
