Ellett steps down as Hampshire girls basketball coach
Sue Ellett has resigned her position as girls basketball coach at Hampshire after a wildly successful seven-year run.
Ellett took over in 2004 and led the Whip-Purs to a 30-4 mark and a second-place finish in the IHSA Class A State Tournament. Her teams were 151-53 over those seven years and had only one losing season during that span.
This season, Hampshire finished 29-2, losing to Oswego in the Class 3A DeKalb Sectional championship game. The Whips were 53-7 over the past two season.
"This is not something that the administration wanted, but we respect Sue's reasons for resigning her position as the girls head coach," Hampshire principal Chuck Bumbales said.
"Sue has been the consummate professional in her tenure as our head coach. It has been a pleasure to watch her work with the young ladies of Hampshire High School. Our players are not only better basketball players but better citizens and people for being a part of this tremendously successful program."
Ellett will continue at Hampshire as a math teacher. Hampshire soon will start looking for Ellett's replacement.
"Sue is a tremendously hard worker," Whip-Purs athletic director Dave Hicks said.
Sue's team reflected her values; the were hard workers who never let up." - Sports - Girls Class A state quarterfinals 02/27/04 [cached]

Ellett is in charge at Hampshire
Sue Ellett, the new girls basketball coach at Hampshire, stands with her arms extended.
Last year, during Milt Awe's farewell coaching tour, the Whip-Purs went unbeaten in the Big Northern Conference West Division and rolled through the playoffs to a third-place finish in the IHSA Class A tournament.
Hampshire didn't just wear opponents down, "We bombarded them," Ellett said, with a relentless up-tempo style supported by an eight-player rotation fueled by substitutions about every 4 minutes.
"We ran them off the floor," said Ellett, who served as Awe's assistant for a second time last season.
Initially an assistant at Hampshire from 1995-98, budget cuts forced Ellett to search for another opportunity to continue her coaching career.She landed at Burlington Central, where she guided the seventh-grade boys team before rejoining Awe's staff last fall.
"I was tied to Hampshire," Ellett said."Even when I left, I did not get too far away."
Ellett has never been one to turn away from an athletic challenge.
As a three-sport standout at Dundee-Crown in the early 1980s, Ellett joined the boys golf team before it was fashionable for girls to attempt to cross over into boys athletics."Title IX got off to a nice start, but that was a time when there was not a lot of intermixing," she said."I was fortunate enough to have coaches who were open-minded.It was great experience for me to go through as a teenager."
Ellett said she became the first girl in the school district to qualify for the boys state golf meet, placing ninth as a senior and 11th as a junior.She also played a role in the D-C girls basketball team qualifying for the state tourney's Elite Eight and was a catcher on the softball team.
"I'm very competitive," said Ellett, who went on to play Division I golf at Northern Illinois.
