Women’s basketball hires coach

Bonnie Henrickson, head women’s basketball coach at Virginia Tech for the past seven years, has been named the fifth head women’s basketball coach at KU.
She succeeds coach Marian E. Washington, who announced her retirement in February after serving 31 years as head coach of the Jayhawks.

Henrickson has taken the Hokies to a record of 158-62 and seven postseason appearances in seven years. Under her guidance, Virginia Tech reached the NCAA tournament five times and the WNIT twice, and won at least 20 games every season.
This past season Henrickson led the Hokies to a 23-8 overall record, including a 10-6 mark in the Big East, which placed eight teams in the NCAA tournament. Virginia Tech advanced to the second round of the NCAA tournament for the second straight year before bowing out to No. 5 Penn State.

Henrickson, a Willmar, Minn., native, graduated from St. Cloud State University in 1986. As a player, she helped SCSU win three Northern Sun Conference championships and advance to three NCAA Division II quarterfinals.
