Carmen Jackman is in her second season as the volunteer assistant coach of the Navy women's tennis program.
In 2012-13, Jackson helped lead the program to a 25-5 record, setting a school record for wins. After starting the year with a 2-3 record, the Midshipmen ran off a school-record 17 straight wins and would finish the year by winning 23 of its last 25 matches. The Midshipmen reached the Patriot League Tournament finals for the third straight year and finished the year ranked 10th in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association's (ITA) Atlantic region rankings.
Jackman joined the staff after concluding a standout career at UMBC in 2012. Jackman was recruited by current Navy head coach Keith Puryear and assistant coach Ale Pedergnana to attend UMBC.
During her career at UMBC, Jackman played anywhere from Nos. 1-4 singles and most of her career at No. 1 doubles. She was named to a first-team All-America East selection in doubles play as a senior after being named second-team All-America East following her sophomore year. She totaled 106 career victories, including a 22-10 record in doubles play as a senior with 14 singles victories. A strong student, Jackman was recognized on the America East Commissioner's Honor Roll as a sophomore.
During her freshman year in 2009, she was named the team's most improved player and went 8-4 in singles play and 15-4 in doubles action.
Jackman received her bachelor's degree in history with a minor in sociology from UMBC in 2012. She is a Silver Spring, Md., native and graduated from Blake High School in 2008. She also currently works at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C.
