One of Babson's most well-liked and respected individuals, Nellie Pineault enters her third season as the head coach of the women's soccer program. Since coming to the College as an administrative assistant in the summer of 1999, Pineault has served in a variety of roles, including Coordinator of Student and Community Services and Coordinator of Compliance and Special Events. Foremost among her duties has been the role of assistant soccer coach, which she held from 2004 to 2009. During that span, the team posted a stellar record of 60-38-19.
In her first season at the helm of the soccer program, Pineault guided the Beavers to an 11-7-2 record, a second-place finish in the NEWMAC Regular Season standings, and their first trip to the conference tournament championship game since 2007. It was Babson’s best regular season finish since 1997 and only the second appearance in the title game since 1998. Pineault then led the team to another fantastic campaign in 2011, as the Beavers went 11-5-2 to improve the coach's career mark to 22-12-4 after two seasons.
A 1999 graduate of St. Michael's University, Pineault earned her MBA from Babson in 2003. Her twin sister Christine attended Babson as an undergraduate, playing both basketball and soccer.
