Susan Stuart

Colorado College’s first and only varsity head coach, Susan Stuart-Elliott has established CC as a perennial contender for an NCAA Division III playoff bid and a contender for a national championship.


She has guided the Tigers to an overall record of 224-110-1 (.670) during her 22 seasons and her teams have made eight NCAA Tournament appearances, including six consecutive from 2002 through 2007.


Colorado College earned a trip to the national semifinals in 2005 by coming from behind to defeat Cortland State, 10-9, in overtime of the regional championship game at Stewart Field. The Tigers also posted the biggest comeback in the tournament's history when they overcame a 9-0 deficit to defeat No. 18 Nazareth College, 12-11, in triple overtime in 2007.


Stuart-Elliott was named West Region Coach of the Year by the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association in 2001, 2004, 2005 and 2014, as well as the 2011 and 2012 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Coach of the Year. CC's 15-3 overall mark in 2012 set a school record for wins in a single season.


She came to Colorado College in 1995 after spending the previous three years as a graduate assistant coach at James Madison University in Virginia. Earlier coaching experience included stints as an assistant at Roanoke College and Penn State University.


Stuart is a 1989 graduate of Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva, N.Y., where she earned her bachelor’s degree in English and Religious Studies and was an All-American goaltender in lacrosse.


A native of Great Fall, Mont., she went on to attend graduate school at James Madison University, receiving her master’s degree in kinesiology in 1994.


In 2008, she was inducted into her alma mater's Hall of Fame and also was enshrined in the Colorado Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 2005.


Stuart was Team Canada’s starting goalkeeper for two World Cup competitions, in Edogawa, Japan (1997) and High Wycombe, England (2001). She also was a member of the United States women's national team from 1989 through 1995, a period that saw her compete on tour against Canada in 1990, England in 1991 and Wales in 1995.


Stuart served as an assistant coach with Team Canada for the second time during the 2013 World Cup in Oshawa, Ontario.

Soccer in College gave me a good point of reference for perspective coaches, somewhere I could direct them to see all of my data, in a well-organized, efficient manner. It was a good tool for my recruiting efforts.
