Curran was a four-year standout for the NU women’s soccer team, ranking third on the career all-time points list with 137. She made an immediate impact for the Cadets as a freshman during the 1995 season by scoring a still-standing school record for most goals (24) and points (55) in a single season.

She earned GNAC First Team All-Conference honors for her efforts during her rookie year. Curran was a two-time All-New England selection in 1995 and 1998. She concluded her career with 53 goals and a school-record 31 assists for 137 career points. Her point total ranks third on the all-time list behind her older sister Maureen ’94, and Brittany Casey ’13.  

Meghan joins her sister Maureen, who was inducted into the Norwich Hall of Fame in 2004.  

“I’ve always tried to follow in Maureen’s footsteps so it feels great to be able to be in the Hall of Fame with her now,” Curran said. “I’m extremely proud and honored to be inducted, I’ll always cherish it.”

Curran also recalled some of her favorite memories while on campus being the preseason training camps every summer. “Getting to come onto campus during preseason before everyone else was always something I looked forward to,” Curran said. “It gave us an opportunity to bond and come together as a team before classes started up.”

Curran works as a middle school physical education teacher in Stratham, N.H. at the cooperative middle school. She also has been the Exeter varsity girls’ soccer coach for the last 14 years, winning six out of the last eight league championships.

She currently lives in Epping, N.H. with her husband Jim and they’ve been married for three years.
