Liberty University Club Sports has announced five new head coaches: Drew Sherwood, beach volleyball (a new program for 2012-13); Ryan Hurley, crew; Rachel Steele, gymnastics; Sara Niemi, women's Division II hockey; and Jesse Wilson, taekwondo.

"We are excited for our new coaches to come in and be a part of our Club Sports program," said Kirk Handy, senior director of Campus Recreation. "We believe the new coaches will take our programs to the next level."

Sherwood is the general manager of the Liberty Mountain Snowflex Centre. He played two seasons with the Flames men's volleyball team, competed in a number of tournaments across the U.S., and has assisted at Liberty's volleyball camps.

Hurley recently served as the coach of the women's varsity crew team at Virginia Tech.

Steele, a 2012 alumna, was the co-founder and captain of the Flames gymnastics team where she competed in three meets and won an individual title in the balance beam event at the 2010 national championships in Texas.

Niemi, a 2009 alumna, has served as an assistant coach for the Flames women's hockey teams since 2009. She has played competitive hockey since age 5, including three seasons with the Flames Division I women's hockey team.

Wilson has been practicing taekwondo for 29 years and is a certified black belt through the Kim School of taekwondo in Danville, Va.
