Suzanne L. Duprat
Sport: Assistant Athletic Director, Coach
Enshrined: Inducted October 14, 1995

Sue will forever be remembered as one of the most influential people in the history of SMC athletics. She was hired in 1976 as SMC's first full-time female athletic administrator -- just a few years after the College allowed its first female students. At the time of her induction, she holds the position of Assistant Athletic Director, and is in her 20th year of service to the College. Aside from her many administrative responsibilities, Sue has also been a very successful coach in several women's sports. Over two decades at SMC, she has served as head coach of the field hockey, volleyball, softball, lacrosse, and basketball teams. It is in basketball that she has achieved the most notoriety. In 1995, she became one of only three women's coaches in New England basketball history to surpass 250 NCAA II career wins. Sue has also represented the College on several prestigious committees, and was the first female president of the New England Collegiate Athletic Conference. A great three-sport athlete at the University of Vermont, she was named to UVM's Hall of Fame in 1991.
