DiPhilippo Named Assistant Women's Soccer Coach at Babson

BABSON PARK, Mass.—Babson College head women's soccer coach Nellie Pineault announced that Jessica DiPhilippo '15 has been hired as the program's new full-time assistant coach. DiPhilippo replaces Meredith Carey, who left in May after seven seasons to become the new head coach at Wentworth Institute of Technology.

DiPhilippo, who served as a part-time assistant coach last fall, was a four-year standout for the Beavers from 2011-14. A four-time All-New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) selection and two-time National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) All-New England honoree, DiPhilippo scored 22 goals and recorded 24 assists in 74 career matches. She ranks second in program history in assists, eighth in points (68) and is tied for 10th all-time in goals.

The Green and White won 10 or more matches three times during DiPhilippo's career, which includes a 12-4-3 mark in 2014 when she served as team captain. The Beavers also reached the conference tournament semifinals in each of her final three seasons.

"I'm ecstatic about hiring Jess as our program's new full-time assistant coach," said Pineault. "She embodies a wealth of qualities, including work ethic, drive, intensity and teamwork that made her a great player and will no doubt help make her a successful coach. I'm excited to have Jess be a big part of our program, and know that her passion and energy will be great for our team."

DiPhilippo, who graduated with a degree in business management, comes to Babson after working as a relationship manager and a recruiter for The Bowdoin Group in Waltham since June 2015. Additionally, she held a sports marketing internship with EPS Communications during her final semester as an undergraduate student.

"I could not be more excited to be back with the women's soccer program," said DiPhilippo. "I feel a tremendous amount of pride and loyalty for both Babson and coach Pineault, and learned so much as a part-time assistant last season. I'm excited to be back in athletics full time and cannot wait to start working with the team."

In addition to her coaching duties, DiPhilippo will also serve as an assistant athletics communications director.
