Stonehill Basketball Court To Be Named in Honor of Paula Sullivan

August 27, 2014


After 43 years of outstanding service to the College, Assistant Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics and Recreation Paula Sullivan retired earlier this summer. 

Over the course of her Stonehill career, Sullivan distinguished herself as a leader and a mentor, someone who cared deeply for our student-athletes. An excellent basketball coach, she leaves behind an impressive record of success, which includes 25 consecutive winning seasons with the women’s basketball team, a 479-159 overall record, six Northeast-10 Conference championships,  10 NCAA Division II Tournament berths, and two trips to the NCAA Division II Elite Eight. Factor in the College winning its first Northeast-10 Conference President’s Cup for overall academic excellence under her leadership, and you understand the impact she has had on our community.

Given all that Sulivan has accomplished at Stonehill, she will be honored on Saturday, November 15th when the College’s basketball court will be officially named the Paula Sullivan Court. The formal dedication will take place prior to the 1:30pm tipoff of the women’s basketball game that day. Following the game, there will be a reception in Sullivan’s honor in the Pettit Atrium of the Shields Science Center.
