Jennifer Bialosky came to Cal in the fall of 1995 as one of current head coach Cari DuBois' first recruits. Since that time, she has had a fruitful career as both an athlete and coach at the University of California.
After competing for three years and working one year as a student assistant, Bialosky begins her fourth year as an assistant coach in 2003. Her ability to relate to the athletes and give peer corrections has been a key factor in the growth and success of many Golden Bear gymnasts. In only her fourth season as an assistant coach, Bialosky has already been recognized for her contribution to the Cal gymnastics program. After helping the Golden Bears to a 17-19 overall record and a fifth place finish at the NCAA Regionals in 2001, she was named the NCAA Region I Assistant Coach of the Year. In 2002, upon the resignation of head coach Trina Tinti in mid February, Bialosky took over the head coaching duties as the interim head coach.
As an elite competitor and five-time state uneven bars champion in club gymnastics, Bialosky made an immediate impact on the 1996 Bears. She started nine meets for Cal, helping her team to a 16-6 overall record and a seventh-place regional finish.
In 1997, Bialosky was just beginning to emerge as one of the Bears best all-arounders when she suffered a season-ending knee injury at the UCLA Invitational that left her with two torn ligaments while ending her season.
As a junior, Bialosky recovered from her injury enough to be a solid performer on vault, balance beam and uneven bars for the Bears and went on to score a career-high 9.775 on the floor versus Arizona.
An American studies 2000 graduate with an emphasis in health and medicine, Bialosky has plans to attend medical school in pursuit of her career goal of becoming an orthopedic surgeon.
