Deidre Koonts, a four-year starter as a guard for the LadyKat basketball team in 1992 through 1995 and head coach at Madisonville High School the past two seasons, is returning to her alma mater as assistant women's basketball coach at Sam Houston State. The past two seasons, Koonts has directed the Madisonville Mustang girls' squad to a 50-15 overall record and consecutive District 21-AAA championships. She was named district "Coach of the Year" both seasons.
