Lori McLaughlin

Varsity Head Coach

Coach McLaughlin came to Cedar Park fresh off the road to state where she ended her 2018 season as the 6A State Runner-Up. When her career in Houston was complete, she was a four-time Regional Quarter-finalist, three-time District Champion, a Regional Semi-Finalist and a State Finalist at Ridge Point High School.  In her time at Ridge Point, Lori was District Coach of the Year three times. In her final season in Houston, Coach McLaughlin was named AVCA Regional Coach of the Year and GHVCA Coach of the Year.  She has also been an All-Star coach for TGCA & GHVCA four years combined.

Prior to Ridge Point, she spent five years at Dawson High School where she went to the Regional Tournament twice, was a Regional Semi-Finalist and also had a District Championship. Prior to Dawson, she spent nine years in Katy ISD: her first three years at Katy Junior High before moving to Mayde Creek for six years where she started her head coaching career.  

This will be Coach McLaughlin's twenty-second year as a Head Coach, and she has led her teams to playoffs for the last fifteen consecutive years in a row.  She and her husband, Mike, have two sons, Chase and Cole.  Chase is a junior at Oklahoma State University, and Cole is a senior at CPHS.

Emma Howard

Varsity Assistant Coach

Coach Howard, born and raised in Texas, graduated from Cedar Ridge High School and has been a multiple sport athlete since she was 4 years old. "I tore my ACL in high school, and went through a whole new experience and new perspective on what it means to be an athlete, mentally, physically, and emotionally. It may not have been what I wanted at the time, but God led me to where I am today."


Coach Howard graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in Secondary Teaching and Mathematics. Emma began her college journey in kinesiology, striving for a path of physical therapy. By her junior year, she told her dad she wanted to be in athletics and teach. In a phone call home, he said, "No matter what you do, love God and love people". She has never looked back.


This is Emma's second year teaching and coaching, and first year at Cedar Park. "Teaching math and coaching is my passion, and I am beyond blessed to have my dream job right out of college." Athletics is so much more than a game, but a place to learn life long lessons, build character, learn to persevere, to trust, to create a mindset of mental toughness, and to grow together as a family. Coach White cannot wait to see where this new sport and journey takes the Timberwolves.
