The latest guest on New England Soccer Journal’s “The Goal” podcast is Loomis Chaffee girls soccer coach Linda Hathorn.
Hathorn is in her fifth season at Loomis, and so far the 2022 season has been a great one for the program. The Pelicans own a record of 8-0-2 with six regular season games remaining before the NEPSAC Class A playoffs. Last week, the team earned a big 1-1 draw against fellow Founders League power Miss Porter’s.
Hathorn also has more than 10 years of college soccer and club coaching experience. She has worked at Northern Arizona University, Regis University, Valparaiso University, the University of Maine and Iona College.
As a player, she was a four-year letterwinner and All-Conference selection at the University of Maine, while also earning the America East Defensive Player of the Year award in 2002 and 2005. In 2003, she competed with the Canadian Women’s National team at the Pan American Games and the World Cup, winning a silver medal at the Pan American Games.
