Semenyna added as assistant coach

May 8, 2012  |  Lynchburg, VA 

 

Former Liberty University men's hockey great David Semenyna was introduced as the new assistant coach for the Flames Division I hockey team on May 8. Semenyna served as an assistant for the school's Division II team the past two seasons where they logged a 40-13-1 record and made two regional appearances.

"David wants to see our hockey program grow here at Liberty," said head coach Kirk Handy. "He is a fantastic recruiter of student athletes and he will be a great addition for us in that area."

Semenyna played four years for Liberty and finished as the all-time leader in goals (102), assists (160), and total points (262). He was also the school's first four-time All-American, being named to the first team all four years. For two year, he was named a finalist for the American Collegiate Hockey Association's National Player of the Year.

"Getting to be a part of coaching now, as part of the team that I played on, its an honor and Im really excited about it," Semenyna said. "I always had interest in coaching after I was done playing, and now with the Division I, I'm most looking forward to working with the players as I know a lot of the guys that are coming back and some of the new guys, so we get some new faces and also a chance to work with some of the guys who have been here a few years."
