Sue Kelly assumed the head women's volleyball coach post at Gordon College in the spring of 2014.
The volleyball team saw great results in Kelly's first season in charge of the program, making the Commonwealth Coast Conference t tournament for the first time since the 2010 season. The Fighting Scots gave eventual CCC runner-up Salve Regina a run for their money, before falling in four sets. Gordon finished 14-14 in her inaugural season and saw several players see career highs in season averages.
In 2015, Kelly took a team projected to sneak into the CCC playoffs all the way to the conference title game. The Fighting Scots finished with a 6-2 record in the league, their best in a decade and swept rival Endicott for the first time in the same span. Gordon played its best volleyball down the stretch, culminating with an unbelievable five-set thriller in the CCC semifinals. The Scots ended the year at 21-10 overall and placed a program-high four players on the All-CCC awards list.
