Liberty Head Tennis Coach Chris Johnson announced the hiring of Meghan Wolfgram as an assistant coach with the program.

Liberty Tennis Coach Chris Johnson has announced the hiring of Meghan Wolfgram as the program's first assistant coach. Wolfgram began her duties this week.

"We are very fortunate to have Meghan join our staff," commented Johnson.  "She brings a very successful tennis background and a passion for coaching and mentoring.  She will be a great fit for our program and Liberty University."

A native of Granite Bay, Calif., Wolfgram, comes to Liberty after leading the Granite Bay High School Boy's team to a successful campaign in her first season as its head coach.  Granite Bay went undefeated in league play and earned a sectional berth in 2009. 

Wolfgram is no stranger to the Commonwealth of Virginia, as the former Sacramento High School Player of the Year attended Richmond and was a member of the Spiders tennis team from 2003-06.  During her collegiate tennis career, she was selected to the Atlantic 10 All-Conference team three times.

In 2006, Wolfgram equaled the team high for singles wins by posting a 17-6 mark, while teaming with Lindsay Cox to record a 19-2 record in No. 1 doubles.  The doubles pair ranked as high as No. 40 in the country by the ITA during the year, running off 16-straight match victories before falling in the NCAA Championships.

"I fell in love with Virginia when I went to college in this beautiful state, and God has blessed me with the opportunity to return and pursue my career at this wonderful Christian University," state Wolfgram. "With this opportunity, I not only hope to improve student-athletes' tennis games, but also guide and mentor them in their relationship with the Lord.

"I've learned that with Him all things are possible and I just hope to be able to instill that in others, as well."

Wolfgram graduated from Richmond in 2007 with a degree in rhetoric and communication studies.  In 2009, she received her secondary teaching credential in health sciences from Cal State Sacramento.
