Allison (Starr) Pohlman

Allison (Starr) Pohlman accepted the position as the head women's basketball coach at Drake. She credits her upbringing in Wellsburg with getting here there.

Allison (Starr) Pohlman hasn’t forgotten from where it is she comes from. She can’t. From the driveway battles with her brothers, to helping usher in the five-player era as an All-Stater at Wellsburg-Steamboat Rock, to a Hall of Fame career at the University of Northern Iowa, to now being named the head women’s basketball coach at Drake, Wellsburg is in her DNA.

“High school was a lot of fun,” Pohlman said. “I got to be on the All-Tournament Team after we got to State and were fortunate enough to win a game. I look back now and feel like that was such an accomplishment.”
