"A win is a win is a win." Kim Sutton's staked her claim long enough to know she'll take them any way she can. All 200 hundred of them and she's got some hardware to prove it!
The quote is on a plaque that the Chico State women's soccer team presented to their head coach after she secured her 200th career NCAA Division II victory thanks to the Wildcats 1-0 triumph over Dominican Saturday at University Soccer Stadium.
Sutton is the 20th active NCAA Division II women's soccer head coach and 34th all-time to reach 200 victories. She's guided the Wildcats for 15 seasons.
Shelby Lanksbury scored the game's lone goal on an assist from Lindsey Dias in the 19th minute. Dias squeezed a pass through to Lanksbury in front of the box and she blasted the shot i to the upper right corner of the net.
Caitlin Duval had nine saves in the shutout for Chico State (4-1-1).
The Wildcats open California Collegiate Athletic Association action on the road at Humboldt State Friday at 12:30.
