Jenna Williamson is in her fourth season as an assistant coach with the UC San Diego women's water polo team in 2013.
Williamson wrapped up her third season as an assistant coach with the UCSD women's water polo program in 2012. Williamson joined the program in 2010 after coaching water polo and swimming at her alma mater, Newport Harbor High School, where she assisted the girls program to a CIF title in 2008.
In 2012, Williamson helped lead the Tritons to their most wins since 2003, as UCSD finished the season at 21-14 overall. The Tritons finished runner-up to Loyola Marymount in the Western Water Polo Association (WWPA) Championships, narrowly missing out on their second straight conference title.
During her second season as assistant coach in 2011, Williamson helped guide the Tritons to a WWPA title and the team's first-ever appearance at the NCAA National Championships. UCSD finished in seventh-place at the tournament and ended the year with a No. 14 national ranking.
In her four seasons as a UCLA student-athlete, Williamson helped capture three consecutive NCAA titles from 2005-07, including UCLA's historic 100th NCAA Championship title during her senior year.
During her freshman year, she led the team in assists, with 31, and had the second-most steals on the team, with 41. Williamson continued to compete for the remaining three seasons, finishing with 23 goals, 40 assists and 60 steals. Highlights from her senior year included four goals against Pacific and All-Academic Team accolades for outstanding efforts in the classroom.
Prior to Williamson's collegiate career, she was a standout high school water polo player for Bill Barnett at Newport Harbor. She was named to the National Youth Team in 2002 and 2003 and earned a trip to Australia to compete internationally.
Williamson graduated from UCLA with a degree in sociology.
