Suzanne Bailey accomplished many feats on the lacrosse and soccer fields, but most team members will tell you that she is remembered as a very unselfish player who always thought of the team first.
A center in lacrosse, she was selected All-Ivy Second Team in 1988 and 1989. During 1990 and again in 1991 she was chosen First Team All-Ivy and capped off her four-year lacrosse career by being named Ivy Player of the Year, and set a new school record for most goals in a season (60) and a career (141).
By being named First Team All-American, she received an invitation to the U.S. Squad Trials, and went on to play with the U.S. squad for four years (1991-1994).
Suzanne also played soccer for Coach Phil Pincince. As a freshman, she was named Ivy League Rookie of the Year, and in addition to All-Ivy soccer honors she was also an All-American soccer selection, as well as All-New England. In soccer she was the first player to be named First Team All-Ivy four consecutive years. As co-captain she led Brown to its ninth consecutive Ivy Title.
Suzanne received the Marjorie B. Smith award as Brown’s outstanding female athlete, as well as the MVP as a senior in soccer. On the academic side, she was selected an Academic All-American.
Currently, Suzanne is teaching English in Providence Country Day while coaching soccer and lacrosse. Her high school- Holton-Arms in Maryland- created the “Suzanne Bailey Award” for the school’s outstanding athlete.
Suzanne lives on the East Side near Brown and can be seen from time to time cheering at soccer and lacrosse games.
