The 2019 season will be the fourth for Terry A. (Prouty) McDonough as the head softball coach at Bentley University. She came to Bentley in 2015 as an assistant coach, was the interim head coach during the 2016 campaign and was named the head coach during the summer of 2016.

A 1988 graduate of Southern New Hampshire University and a member of its Athletic Hall of Fame, McDonough was a member of the SNHU staff from 1999-2014 with her duties including assistant director of athletics, senior women’s administrator, head women’s soccer coach and softball coach.

McDonough totaled 119 wins during her 15 seasons as the Penmen soccer coach, registering a record of 119-124-35 with two NCAA regional appearances (2003, 2012) and a Northeast-10 championship in 2012. She also coached softball for six years, posting a 76-140 mark with a 19-17 record in 2004 her best. Five of her softball teams improved on the previous year’s win total.

Before returning to her alma mater, McDonough spent two years at Keene State College as the assistant director of athletics and assistant women’s soccer coach.

McDonough, who is an NASM National Certified Personal Trainer and a former assistant coach for the Massachusetts Drifters Gold Team, began her collegiate coaching career at Daniel Webster College in 1994 as the SWA and women’s soccer coach. She also coached the Eagles’ softball team and was promoted to Director of Athletics before making the shift to Keene.

Before embarking on her college career as a two-sport standout at SNHU, McDonough earned All-Scholastic honors from the Boston Globe, Boston Herald and Brockton Enterprise in both girls’ soccer and softball at East Bridgewater High School.
