Sue Pitt swam butterfly and freestyle at Highland Park High School and then the University of Vermont. She competed at the 1964 Olympics in the medley relay, and made the 1968 Olympic team, although she did not get to compete. She won three AAU titles, the 100 fly outdoors in 1965-66 and the 200 yard fly indoors in 1965. In July 1963 Pitt set a world record for the 200 metre butterfly, recording 2:29.1.

After retiring from competition, Pitt married a swimmer and they spent two years together coaching swimming in Tunisia as Peace Corps volunteers. She then coached for 28 years, founding the Scarlet Aquatic Club in 1991, and serving as head coach of that club for the next decade. Pitt later became Director of Programs and Services at USA Swimming.
