Meet Head Volleyball Coach Sue Everden

October 10, 2018

According to Head Volleyball Coach Sue Everden, “Volleyball is power, finesse and a lot of intelligence.” In this video, the enthusiastic and dedicated coach reflects on her storied career and what keeps her motivated.


Many individuals that I'm recruiting and their parents asked me, you know, wow,  you've got a pretty full career. What keeps you going? What drives you?

Volleyball is power, finesse and a lot of intelligence. Six individuals on a very small area have to really know what the other individual’s going to do without a lot of talking. It just kind of happens.

Volleyball is intense. It's exciting. Part of the reason that volleyball is my coaching sport is because it is such a high energy, fast, fast-moving sport. There's nothing like it.

I look at the recruiting aspect as a stepping stone for the rest of their lives, those individuals that want that special experience that is very much tied to their academic aspirations. Yes, I have four seniors walking out the door, but I have four first-years coming in the door, and so it forces me to stay in that moment.

To see people come in, grow, leave, go out and do just awesome things in life, but to be a part of that four years, what could be better than that? Nothing. Absolutely nothing.
