Rafael Monasterio has been hired as the new head boys soccer coach at South Sioux City High School.
The South Sioux City athletic department has hired its new head boys soccer coach, Rafael Monasterio. Rafael will also join South Sioux City High School as an ESL/English teacher. He takes over after the controversial dismissal of long-time coach Marla Grier.
Born and raised in Guanajuato, Mexico, Rafael received a Masters in Education with an ESL endorsement from Morningside College in Sioux City, IA. Rafael has taught and coached at Sioux City West High School and Middle School.
Rafael played at the collegiate level for three years under coach Tom Maxon at Morningside College. Upon graduation he continued his soccer career as an assistant coach with the program for two years. Rafael served as an academic and life mentor to the athletes. He also assisted with all coaching duties related to practice preparation and implementation. Coach Monasterio will be helping at off-season strength and conditioning, Card Power, and is excited to work with athletes the rest of the summer.
The Cardinals won a state title in 2013 and played in the state tournament this past season.
