SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - Mitch Rubin has been named Shepherd College soccer coach, according to athletic director Monte Cater.

Rubin leaves Linganore High School, where he recorded a 50-21-9 record, to accept the position at the NCAA Division II school.

Rubin served as an assistant at Division I Winthrop University before moving to Linganore.

Rubin was a four-year starter at Longwood College, a nationally ranked Division II school, from 1987-90. He was the team's most valuable player in 1988 and earned Academic All-Conference honors in 1990.

Rubin is taking over a Shepherd program which was 6-11 last season, including a 3-4 record in the West Virginia Conference.


Rubin announced the signing of eight recruits, including Jeff Willingham of Jefferson, Darby Burdette of St. John's at Prospect Hall and Sasha Lupinacci of Linganore.

Willingham, a midfield/striker, was Jefferson's team captain and three-year starter for the regional finalists. He was selected All-Area in 1996 and is a member of the West Virginia Olympic Development Program. EPIC, his club team, is the three-time West Virginia state champions.

Burdette, a midfield/striker, was a four-year starter at Prospect Hall. He led the team in scoring and earned MVP honors.

Lupinacci, a back midfielder, was a Mid-Maryland and All-Conference selection in 1996 and 1997. Lupinacci was a three-year starter and a two-time member of the regional finalist team at Linganore.
