Chin Named Assistant Women's Soccer Coach
NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- Sue-Moy Chin, assistant women's soccer coach
at Florida International the past three years, has been named assistant
coach at Notre Dame, announced head coach Chris Petrucelli. Sue-Moy Chin
replaces Margaret Jarc, who served as assistant since 1995 after starring
for Petrucelli on the Irish women's soccer team from 1989-92. Sue-Moy Chin
will join her sister, Carla, as one of Petrucelli's two assistant coaches.
She will begin her duties Aug. 5.
Sue-Moy Chin was an integral part of the Florida International women's
soccer program for the last seven years, four as one of best players in
school history and three as assistant coach. A four-year letterwinner for
the Golden Panthers, Chin holds school goalkeeper records for shutouts in a
single season (7) and career (20).
She was an honorable mention Soccer News All-American in 1993, a
two-time all-conference and three-time all-Florida selection at Florida
International. During her career, Chin started 58 consecutive games in the
net with a career 1.10 goals-against average before a finger injury forced
her out of the net and into the midfield. She continued to lead the team
as a midfielder by scoring two goals in seven games.
A native of Scarborough, Ontario, Chin was a member of the Canadian
national team prior to arriving at Florida International. She won letters
in soccer, volleyball, basketball, field hockey and track at Aurora High
School where she was two-time athlete of the year.
Notre Dame is coming a school-record 24-2-0 season in 1996 after
finishing the regular season as the top-ranked team in the country and made
its third straight appearance in the NCAA championship game. The Irish
will open their 1997 season against St. John's on Aug. 29, at Alumni Field.
