Chalupny Helps US National Team Win FIFA Women’s World Cup
Chalupny, who has served as a Saints assistant coach for the past two seasons, played at Nerinx Hall High School in Webster Groves, Mo., and collegiately at the University of North Carolina where she was a three-time All-American. She is playing professionally in the National Women’s Soccer League for the Chicago Red Stars.
The World Cup Championship is the latest honor in Chalupny’s standout playing career.
