Susie spent seven years with the Cal State Fullerton Titan coaching staff as a volunteer assistant coach working primarily with the pitching staff. A three-time All-American (1992-94) and national champion (1991, 93, 94) from Arizona, Parra was an assistant coach with the Titans for three seasons prior to starting her own pitching school. In 1994, Parra became Arizona’s first-ever National Player of the Year awardwinner and helped lead the Wildcats to the national championship. That season, she earned Pacific-10 Conference Player of the Year honors and was named to the All-College World Series Team after her one-hit, 13-strikeout performance against Cal State Northridge. During the 1994 College World Series, Parra posted a perfect 3-0 record, pitching 21 innings and allowing just two runs (neither of those earned), walking seven, and striking out 18 batters while hitting .300 in four games at the plate.  In her four years, Parra posted a 9-1 record in College World Series play with eight shutouts and a 0.00 ERA.
Parra also ranks among the Arizona greats in the record books: No. 4 on the single-season home runs list (14 in 1994), No. 3 in career home runs (20), No. 4 in career RBIs (108), No. 8 in walks while batting (25 in 1994), No. 7 in career walks (57), No. 10 in career at-bats (541), No. 8 career games played (213). While with the Wildcats, she also set numerous records (some which were later eclipsed), including: single-season pitching wins (33 in 1994), career pitching wins (101), earned run average (0.30 in 1992), single-season strikeout totals (256), career strikeouts (874), career innings pitched (780.0), and career no-hitters (8).
