Wally was the varsity girls' head basketball coach and was selected as the District Coach of the Year Award for the 2022-2023 season.

Wally's life was a reflection of his relationship with Christ, and he impacted others with his acts of service, generosity, and love. He had a nickname for everyone, a big laugh, and an outgoing personality which everyone loved.
