Former Temple goalkeeper Megan McLouth makes the move to the collegiate coaching ranks after two seasons as a head coach at the high school level in Cincinnati. McLouth has responsibilities throughout the program, including goalkeeper training.
A two-year starter at Temple, McLouth firmly etched her name in the program's record books. She ended her career seventh in Owls history with 374 career saves and also finished seventh with her .501 career save percentage.
A member of four consecutive Atlantic 10 regular season championship teams and three NCAA Tournament appearances at Temple, in 2004, McLouth registered a league-high 183 saves and was named the all-Atlantic 10 Tournament goalie. A starter in every game as a senior, McLouth concluded her final campaign with all-Atlantic 10 first team recognition. She posted a 12-2 mark in league matches over her final two seasons.
A knowledgeable ambassador of the game, she immediately moved to the role of coach and camp clinician. McLouth accepted the head coaching position at Ursuline Academy in 2006 and directed the squad to a third-place league showing. She spent 2007 making an immediate impact at St. Ursula Academy, where her team finished second in the Girls Greater Cincinnati League.
A native of Centreville, Va., McLouth played two years at Centreville High School where she keyed the Wildcats' march to the 2001 state title. She spent two years in Brentwood, Tenn., where with the support of her family, she helped organized several girl's lacrosse programs, while playing goalie for the Brentwood Academy Bruins varsity boy's team.
McLouth earned her bachelors degree in Fine Arts from Temple in 2005.
