McMullen guided the Chiefs to the Region IV title last season

Jennifer McMullen, Head Coach

Jennifer McMullen is in her eighth year leading Waubonsee’s women’s tennis. The Chiefs’ program has thrived under her leadership as a direct result of her focus on commitment, hard work and developing a well-rounded game. Last season she helped guide the Chiefs to the Illinois Skyway Collegiate Conference (ISCC) title and the Region IV crown. McMullen’s crew went on to finish 24th nationally at the NJCAA Division I National Tournament in Arizona. McMullen was subsequently named the ISCC and Region IV Coach of the Year. In addition, she has helped four other Chiefs’ players to NJCAA National Tournament berths during her tenure. 

Coach McMullen brings an extensive tennis resume to Waubonsee’s sideline. She has been the tennis pro at the Vaughan Athletic Center in Aurora since 2003, specializing in Women’s Travel Teams, Junior Recreational, Developmental and Advance Courses. Prior to that, she supervised and taught tennis for three years for the City of Albuquerque (NM) Parks and Recreation Department.

As a collegiate player at Ferris State (MI.) College, McMullen helped the Bulldogs win the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference championship in 1983-84.  She later graduated with an Associate’s Degree in Engineering and a Bachelor’s Degree in Statistics from the University of New Mexico. She worked for 13 years in research and development for Alcan Aluminum. McMullen continues to play tennis competitively on USTA and NITTL tennis teams. She resides in Elburn with her husband Lee and their two children, Maddy and Erin.
