In the midst of a busy spring season, Liberty men's and women's head tennis coach Chris Johnson had a chance to talk with LibertyFlames.com's Nick Pierce to review the season's progress.

On the women's side, Pierce and Johnson talk about the balance of senior leadership and the freshmen's performance, program-first wins early in the season as well as the latest win for the team, a 4-3 victory over Coastal Carolina to grab a share of the first place in the Big South Conference with Coastal Carolina and Winthrop.

Regarding the men, topics include the youth of the team, learning from close matches, Giancarlo Lemmi's leadership as the team captain, and thoughts as the season winds down and moves toward the Big South Championships.

To wrap up the inverview, Johnson speaks about the program's new home on Campus North at the Hershey-Esbenshade Tennis Courts.
