Liberty Tennis Alum Segur to Serve as Volunteer Assistant Coach
Liberty Men's Tennis Head Coach Derek Schwandt has announced the addition of alumnus Dillon Segur as a volunteer assistant coach for the upcoming 2021-22 season.
"It's an honor to have Dillon join our staff. He absolutely loves Liberty Tennis and will be a valuable mentor for our coaching staff and student-athletes," Schwandt said. "He is also a strong player who will challenge our team in training. I'm most excited about Dillon's character and integrity."
Segur competed for the Flames from 2011-15. He earned Big South All-Conference Doubles and VaSID All-State Doubles second team honors with partner Egon Samaai in 2014. Segur and Samaai won 17 doubles matches that season, which is tied for the fourth most of any Flames doubles pairing in program history.
Segur was a part of the winningest senior class in program history, as the Flames won 52 dual matches and 17 Big South contests. Segur and Liberty also earned the program's first-ever victory over a ranked opponent, a 4-3 win over No. 64 Oklahoma State on Feb. 28, 2012.
Segur ranks sixth in school history with 65 career doubles victories and is tied for eighth in career singles triumphs with 63.
"I am honored and excited for the opportunity to serve the men's tennis team in this capacity," Segur stated. "Since graduating, I've wanted to serve the current players and cheer them on to bring the program further than it has ever been. When Coach Derek (Schwandt) approached me about serving with them, I knew this was a way I could continue to do that."
Segur graduated from Liberty in 2015 with a bachelor's degree in Youth Ministries. He also obtained his master's degree in Christian Ministries from Liberty in 2019.
Segur currently serves as the Associate Director for Events for LU Stages, a position he has held since Dec. 2018. LU Stages exists to develop champions for Christ through campus-wide events and ministry experiences.
Segur and his wife Ashlyn currently reside in Lynchburg with their dog, Roger Federer Segur.
