LeTourneau names new women's basketball coach

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -

LeTourneau Athletics Press Release:

LeTourneau University has named Leslie Reinecker as its new head women’s basketball coach, announced athletic director Terri Deike.

 “Leslie will be a great fit for LeTourneau, because she brings a solid basketball background and a passion for the game. She brings a commitment to our Christian mission, to the academic development and well-being of our student-athletes and to being one of the top women’s basketball programs in the American Southwest Conference. Her various experiences in basketball have prepared her for this challenge and we look forward to a bright future for YellowJacket women’s basketball.”

Reinecker comes to LeTourneau after the YellowJackets reached the American Southwest Conference basketball tournament for the first time in 2013-14. The YellowJackets return a solid nucleus of returnees along with veteran assistant coach Markeith Brown.

Prior to accepting the position at LeTourneau, Reinecker served as an assistant coach at NCAA Division I member, Sam Houston State in Huntsville, Texas. With the Bearkats, she was responsible for the development of team fundamental skills and guard play. Reinecker was also involved in the scouting of opponents and the oversight of the academic progress of the student-athletes. Reinecker also assisted with the on-court coaching in practice and games as well as the evaluation and recruitment of student-athletes, both on and off the court. The Bearkats won the Southland Conference in 2013 en route to the program’s second-consecutive post-season appearance and four-consecutive Southland Conference Tournament appearances.

Reinecker spent two years as the head girls’ basketball coach at Prosper High School and three years at East Bernard High School; in addition to serving as an assistant coach at Allegheny College for two years.

She earned her bachelor’s degree with cum laude honors from Southwestern University in Georgetown, where she played under current Centenary College Director of Athletics and Wellness, Ronda Seagraves.
