Sue Enquist has been head coach of the UCLA softball team for four seasons after serving as co-coach for eight years. She quickly put the Bruins on top, leading 1999's team to the College World Series championship with an astounding record of 63-6, and the 2000 squad to a second place national Series finish.
UCLA is the country's winningest team, and in Enquist's 12 seasons as head coach or co-head coach the Bruins are an amazing 561-88. That's dominance!
Enquist is in her 25th season as either a player or coach with the Bruins. She became the first softball player to be inducted into the UCLA Athletic Hall of Fame.
Also recognized as an exceptional teacher, Enquist was named the 1992 NCAA National Coach of the Year and was the Regional Coach of the Year in 1991 and '92.
As one of the eight softball coaches in the nation chosen to work with the U.S. National Team, Enquist was part of the coaching staff on the 1996 gold medal winning U.S. Olympic Team for the Summer Games in Atlanta, Ga. -- the inaugural games for softball as a medal sport.
Sue was an All-American center fielder who sparked UCLA to its first national championship (AIAW) in 1978 as the tournament's leading hitter. She established the UCLA career record with a .401 batting average, a mark that still stands today.
