Women’s Soccer Announces Burnett as Volunteer Assistant

Burnett played for the Boston Breakers in 2015 (Northeastern Athletics).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Chris Hamblin, the Branca Family Head Coach for Harvard Women's Soccer, has announced the addition of Paige Burnett as the program's volunteer assistant coach. Burnett's primary responsibility will be to work with the goalkeepers.

Burnett was a four-year starter in front of the net at Northeastern University, where she was a two-time Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) champion and 2014 first team All-CAA selection. After setting the Northeastern single-season records for shutouts (16) and goals-against average (0.377) in 2014, Burnett was also recognized on the All-Mid Atlantic and NSCAA Scholar All-East Region first teams.

"We are excited to welcome Paige to the program," said Hamblin. "Paige was an outstanding collegiate goalkeeper who is passionate about the coaching profession."

A native of Placentia, California, Burnett played professionally for the Boston Breakers of the National Women's Soccer League in 2015, spending time with both the full and reserve teams. This past fall she served at the goalkeeper coach for Simmons College, where she helped the Sharks to a nine-win season, including an 8-3 mark in the Greater Northeast Athletic Conference.

Burnett rounds out the coaching staff for the season, as Harvard also added Kerry Baldwin as an assistant coach on April 7.
