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.
