PROVIDENCE, RI - Former Brown women's lacrosse and soccer standout, Suzanne Bailey '91, has been selected for induction into the U.S. Lacrosse Potomac Chapter Lacrosse Hall of Fame. The Class of 2010, which also includes Ryan Curtis, Michael DelGrande, Kim Hutcherson, Bud Mayo, and Mary Pat Veihmeyer, will be recognized at the 2010 Induction Ceremony and Dinner, scheduled for Saturday, February 6, 2010 at the University Club of Washington, DC.

A 1997 inductee of the Brown Athletics Hall of Fame, 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 setting a new school record for most goals in a season (60) and a career (141). An Honorable Mention All-American in 1990, Bailey earned First Team All-America honors in 1991. By being named a 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.

Bailey received the Marjorie Brown Smith award as Brown's outstanding female athlete in 1991. She was also named a Second Team Academic All-American in 1991.
