Farewell Coach Loughran, we will miss you!
We will truly miss Coach Sharon Loughran. Not only was she our girl’s varsity head coach but she was Walton’s head Swim and Dive coach and a respected teacher in Cobb County for 30 years. She coached for Walton Soccer for 26 years.
Although Coach Loughran is officially retiring from the Cobb County School District and leaving behind her teaching position and her head varsity soccer coach position, she will be embarking on the next chapter in her career. Westminster School has offered her a position as the swim coach and the boys JV soccer coach. This was an offer she couldn’t refuse. Walton Soccer is saddened to see her go but we are also excited to see her move on to a new challenge.
Coach Loughran was part of two state championships in both soccer and swimming. Her last title in soccer came in 1993 and just recently in swimming in her last season in 2017. Coach Loughran has taken her varsity girl’s soccer teams to the state playoffs every year since she took over as head coach for Bruce Wade in 2012.
