College Hockey:
Olympian Chu Named Assistant Coach at Union

U.S. Olympian Julie Chu has been named an assistant coach at Union, the school announced Monday.

Chu, a member of three straight Olympic teams, joins coach Claudia Asano’s staff after previously serving as an assistant coach at Minnesota-Duluth.

“I know that speaking for myself and my staff we are very excited to have Julie join our staff,” Asano said in a statement. “Our team is also looking forward to her arrival on campus. Not only is she an outstanding player and coach but she is an excellent person. Union Hockey is very lucky to have Julie joining us on the bench.”

Chu was the 2007 Patty Kazmaier Award winner after completing her career at Harvard.
