Sue Ghosh was one of the most consistent players for the Amherst College women’s tennis team during her four years in the Pioneer Valley, helping the Purple & White to three straight NESCAC Championship title matches from 2013-15, a conference title in 2014, a pair of NCAA Division III Championship consolation finals (2013 and 2015), and a national runner-up finish in 2014.
A Gaithersburg, Md. native, Ghosh earned back-to-back Second Team All-NESCAC honors in singles action in 2014 and 2015, and also earned First Team All-NESCAC recognition in doubles play as a junior in 2015. She also picked up ITA All-America status in singles and doubles as a junior, finishing 18th overall in singles action, and fourth in doubles following the 2014-15 campaign.
As a senior, Ghosh posted a 9-13 overall record, and a 5-12 mark from the #1 singles position. In doubles, Ghosh notched a combined record of 18-14 from the #1 doubles slot.
Off the court, Ghosh, who graduated with a degree in environmental studies, led a committee called “Green Athletics” at Amherst which was geared towards increasing environmental sustainability to reduce athletics waste and energy consumption. Through her efforts in laying a solid foundation for the initiative, Ghosh’s long-term plan for Green Athletics is for the program to become an integral part of the Department of Athletics at Amherst.
