Hello! I am Celeste Walton. I have been a part of the Cobb Atlanta family for 4 seasons. 

      My love for volleyball began at a young age; I have played all positions from libero, setter, MH, & RS. I have also played club volleyball for multiple clubs in AL and here in GA. I was recruited and signed to play for Tennessee Temple University in Chattanooga, TN, in my senior year. While there, the Lady Crusaders made their first USCAA National Championship appearance in school history. I finished the season at TTU with 97 blocks (8th in USCAA Conference) and a career-high of 15 blocks in a four-set match against Point University. When TTU discontinued the program, I transferred to Huntingdon College and played another 3 seasons (NCAA) before relocating to Georgia. I have 7 years of experience coaching in TN, AL, and most recently for the Varsity Lady Hornets at Hiram High School. I enjoy teaching the game for every age and level. I work to make sure my teams learn core leadership skills, build confidence and nurture their love for the game. 

During my time here at Cobb Atlanta I have assisted with our 14-3 travel team, and our 16-1 Elite teams. In 2021, I led my own team 16-2 Travel through my first season as a Head Coach. Along with coaching a club team in 2021 I was named the SELECT League Coordinator and this will be my 2nd year leading that program! During the season I assit with Fitnesss sessions, Clinics and any camps that we are offering. One of the things I love about Cobb Atlanta is how I am able to continuously interact with players of all ages and all levels. I am so excited for the 2021 - 2022 season!
