She helped recruit the largest class in program history and finished the 2016 as the interim head coach. She led the team to a 22-14 record in 2016, marking the program's first winning season since 2011 and best win total since 2005. Binetti graduated from LaGrange with a master's in education.   Binetti spent 2017-18 as the full-time assistant coach at Illinois College. She helped the program post a nine-win improvement from her first campaign to her last, culminating in a 22-9 record in 2018. She served as the junior varsity coach and assisted the head coach in all aspects of the program from recruiting to practice planning to scouting. Binetti also designed a curriculum and taught the Illinois College Athletic Leadership Academy.   Since 2012, Binetti has served as a coach on six different club teams for girls 13-18 in five different states.
