Whieldon Named Coordinator of Operations for WSU Soccer
PULLMAN, Wash. - Washington State soccer head coach Todd Shulenberger announced Tuesday the newest addition to the soccer staff, coordinator of operations Shayna Whieldon. Whieldon played under Shulenberger at WSU from 2015-19. She replaces Jess Greer who transitioned out of the program to spend time with her young family.
"We're very happy to have Shayna in the Cougar family and joining our staff," said Shulenberger. "She brings experience and an understanding of our program. Shayna has worked her way up and is incredibly deserving of this opportunity."
Whieldon, a Norco, Calif., native, graduated from WSU in 2020 after five seasons on the Cougar soccer team. She appeared in 64 games for the Cougars and started 19 matches. In her career in Crimson, Whieldon notched two goals and five assists. Whieldon played in all 24 matches of the 2019 season, ending with an historic run to the NCAA College Cup semifinal.
"I want to thank Todd for giving me the opportunity to remain with Cougar soccer," Whieldon said. "I look forward to giving back to the program that has given me so much over the last seven years. Go Cougs!"
Whieldon served last season as the Cougars' video coordinator, assisting in the breakdown of game film and practice sessions. Whieldon's sister, Marin, is a junior on the Cougar soccer team, having played 33 matches in her two-year career. Shayna holds a degree in Zoology from Washington State.
"I also want to thank Jess for all the time and effort she put into our program, and we wish her the best," Shulenberger added. "We're looking forward to getting the season started. Go Cougs."
