LAKE CHARLES, La. -- Brooks Donald-Williams was named the new head coach of the McNeese State women's basketball team.

The school announced Donald-Williams' appointment Thursday, stressing her success as a recruiter as a member of the staff at Southern Mississippi.

A native of Jennings, she succeeds Carol Sensley who relinquished her role as head coach at midseason, citing health reasons.

At Southern Mississippi, Donald-Williams served as recruiting coordinator and assistant coach, the same position she held in the 2003-2004 season at the University of Memphis. She also served as head coach at St. Thomas More High in Lafayette and was the interim head coach at the University of Arkansas-Little Rock for a brief period and was an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator there from 2000 to 2003.
