A legendary member of the Babson coaching staff, Judy Blinstrub is entering her 33rd season at the helm of the women's basketball program in 2015-16. Blinstrub, who also serves as Babson's Associate Director of Athletics and Senior Women's Administrator, coached both the basketball and soccer programs to regional prominence before stepping down from soccer prior to the 2005 season. Having collected her 500th victory in basketball in 2011-12, she is currently the only coach in the history of Division III women's sports with 500 wins in hoops and 200 wins in soccer.

On the hardwood, Blinstrub has posted a magnificent 581-288 (.669) record over 32 seasons. During her tenure, Babson has made nine appearances in the NCAA Tournament, including trips to the Sweet 16 in 1993 and 1994, regional trips in 1999, 2009, and 2012, and back-to-back appearances in the Elite 8 in 2010 and 2011. In addition, Babson won the 1986 MAIAW State Championship and captured conference titles in 1991, 1993, 1999, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013. The Beavers have also appeared in the ECAC Tournament eight times, including a trip in 2005.

Blinstrub was named conference Coach of the Year in 1990, 1993, 2005, 2009, 2010, and 2011, and she won District I and New England Coach of the Year honors following both the 1993 and 2011 seasons. She also was inducted into the Babson Athletics Hall of Fame in 2011 after guiding the Beavers to a magnificent 30-1 record - including 30 straight wins - before finally suffering their only defeat in the national quarterfinals.

A native of Newton, Mass., Blinstrub came to Babson in 1984 after serving as coach and athletics director at Mount Alvernia and Brimmer and May School in Newton. In addition to Babson's Hall of Fame, she is a also member of the Northeast Women's Hall of Fame and the Athletics Hall of Fame at her alma mater Bridgewater State.
