LYNCHBURG, VA – Lynchburg College recently named Jason Page as its interim men's and women's tennis coach for the 2011 spring season. Page served as an assistant for the Hornet programs last season.
Page was born in Lynchburg and attended high school at Lynchburg Christian Academy where he played tennis for two years. He earned his undergraduate degree in sport management from Liberty University in 2001 and teaches business education in the technical education department at Heritage High School.
Page coached high school tennis for eight years. He passed his USPTA Certification Exam at the Professional 1 level - the highest level possible. He also participates in USTA League Tennis and local tennis ladders.

"I am excited about the challenges ahead and look forward to working with this group of players," said Page. "We have a lot of work to do to get better and reach our goals; hopefully we will embrace the challenge as a team and work as one unit to reach our individual and team goals."
