When she was in the 11th grade, Coleman traded basketball for soccer and made an immediate impact by leading the Rams to the state 5A playoffs for the first time in the school's history, a feat she helped them repeat in her senior season. The team also recorded its first two winning seasons.

Coleman proved to be highly versatile, playing sweeper, goalkeeper, and even leading the team in goals scored with 13 in her senior season.

Academically, Coleman is ranked 14 out of 225 in her senior class with a 3.4 GPA.
