Nellie Pineault, Camp Director
Nellie Pineault is in her sixth season as the head coach of the women’s soccer program with a career mark of 53-29-14. Since arriving at Babson in 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 a fantastic 11-5-2 campaign in 2011 as well as a nine-win season and a trip to the conference semifinals in 2012. Pineault also led the Green and White to 14 victories in 2015, its most since 2001 and a trip to the NCAA tournament.
