Sue Everden has guided Amherst College to an impressive 713-283 overall record, 22 NESCAC postseason appearances, three NESCAC titles, seven NCAA Division III Championship berths, and has twice been named the NESCAC and New England Region Coach of the Year. Everden currently ranks sixth in Division III in victories (all active coaches), and her winning percentage of .716 is currently ranked 30th all-time amongst Division III coaches.
Everden's squads have reached the NESCAC semifinals for the last five seasons, including in 2015, when Everden led the Purple & White to a 23-5 mark, and an 8-2 record in league play, earning an at-large bid to appear in the NCAA Championship for the first time since 2010. Amherst's 23 wins marked the 23rd time the team has posted 20 or more wins in a season under Everden's watch, and the ninth time since 2006.
The Purple & White's 28-5 record in 2006 marked the highest winning percentage (84.8%) of Everden’s tenure at Amherst, but the 2007 squad broke that mark by going 30-5 (.857) and earning a trip to the NCAA Quarterfinals for the first time in program history. Everden's 2010 squad was even more impressive, finishing with a 25-4 record (.862) highlighted by a 16-match win streak that spanned more than a month. The 2007 season was the second time Amherst notched 30 wins in a campaign having previously established a record of 30-11 in 1995.
After graduating from Slippery Rock University, Everden completed her master's degree at Springfield College and has amassed a bevy of experience coaching a variety of sports at several colleges, including Clarkson University, the United States Coast Guard Academy and her ongoing tenure at Amherst.
