Head Coach, Jenna Frazer

Hello! I’m Bellevue’s newest head water polo coach. I’m really looking forward to the upcoming season working with each athlete. Before I get to know you and your families, here is some information about me! 

I began playing water polo at 12 or 13 during Midlakes, and since then I haven’t stopped. I played at a highly competitive level of club water polo for six years for multiple different programs including: (RCWP, NWPC, Narrows Water Polo, and UW Women’s water polo club). I competed in Junior Olympics six times. I tried out and was selected for the PNW Olympic Development team three times. Concurrent with club polo, I played for Bellevue High for all four years.  In high school I was named team defensive MVP twice; WA state defensive MVP, and was a captain my senior year. Last year, I had the privilege of spending a summer playing Master’s Water Polo in Honolulu on a club team. Now, as a 2023 graduate from Marist College, I continue to play Water Polo on Master’s Polo clubs in the Seattle area.

Matthew Mulfinger – Assistant Coach Bellevue Boys and Girls 2021

Matthew started playing water polo at Bellevue as a high school junior.  Starting to play late worked out for Matthew as his athleticism was evident as soon as he was in the pool.  Graduating from Bellevue in 2019, and with only two years of experience playing waterpolo, Matthew went on to play at Saddleback College in Mission Viejo.  Matthew carved out his niche as a left handed defensive specialist as well as the guy calling plays for the Mission Viejo offense.  in 2021 Matthew was admitted to University of Washington where he still plays club Water Polo and majors in Economics.  Look for former coach Matthew cheering from the sidelines at games this Fall season 2022.
