MORGANTOWN, W.Va.  – West Virginia University head ladies’s tennis coach Miha Lisac has introduced Calvin Song as the new assistant coach for the Mountaineers for the 2023-24 season.
“We are excited to add Calvin Song to our program,” Lisac mentioned. “Calvin comes from a fantastic main program and is very well-recommended by a number of the high coaches in the game. He is an impressive person and I’m looking ahead to having him work with the group on and off the tennis courts as we are building this system onto the nationwide stage.”
“My household and I are very grateful to be joining the Mountaineer household,” Song mentioned. “I would like to thank head coach Miha Lisac, Brittney O’Dell and West Virginia University Athletics for providing me with this phenomenal opportunity. I cannot wait to get to work with our gamers, staff and neighborhood and construct off West Virginia’s momentum.”
Song was just lately an assistant coach at Fresno State, becoming a member of the Bulldogs in February 2021. He was part of the group that completed 20-4 during the 2021-22 season, and a program that went a combined 21-9 in convention play in three seasons.
During his time at Fresno State, the Bulldogs received the 2022 Mountain West Conference regular-season championship for the first time in class history. The Bulldogs had three players named Mountain West Player of the Year whereas Song was on the teaching workers.
Fresno State also had a doubles staff that was ranked No. 45 in the country and earned a visit to the NCAA Tournament in 2023. Song assisted in assembling a mid-major recruiting class that was ranked No. 14 by Tennis Recruiting Network in 2022.
Prior to his place at Fresno State, Song had stops at Wake Forest as a men’s volunteer assistant coach and at Iowa as a ladies’s volunteer assistant coach.
During his time at Iowa, he helped the Hawkeyes upset then-No. 50 Kansas State and defeat Michigan State earlier than the season ended because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
