JACKSONVILLE — Jacksonville College announced Tuesday that Leasa Ailshie has been selected as its new head women’s basketball coach.
Ailshie, 25, worked as associate head women’s basketball coach this past season.
She replaces Lynn Nabi, who was named as the school’s academic dean earlier this month. She is a native of Claremore, Okla.
After leading Claremore High to a Class 5A state-tournament appearance, she played two seasons at Conners State (Okla.) College before moving on to complete her playing days at Sam Houston State.
Ailshie worked as a graduate assistant coach at Sam Houston while earning a master’s degree.
This will be Ailshie’s first time to serve as a head coach.
