Tournament results, medal counts, and official statistics will never do justice in explaining what Jennie Jacobsen-Huse has meant to women's water polo, USA Water Polo, and the water polo community as a whole over the last 40 years plus. A pioneer in women's water polo as an athlete pushing to get water polo for females first at Pasadena High School and then at the University of California-Santa Barbara she was a National Champion with the Merced Water Polo club and remains active in masters water polo. In the interim Jacobsen-Huse pitched in wherever necessary taking on a variety of roles to help better the game and improve the experience for those involved. She helped establish the very first USA Water Polo National Office in Colorado Springs and served as the first team leader for both the Women's Senior and Junior National Teams. Jacobsen-Huse served on the first ever USA Water Polo Board of Directors, was a respected desk official, wrote articles for the then Scoreboard Magazine, and did just about everything else in between. Ms. Jacobsen-Huse remains a key part of the Commerce Aquatics program.
