SHS Welcomes New Baseball Coach
Shorewood High School (SHS) and the Shorewood Athletic Department are excited to welcome Josh Lemke as the SHS head varsity baseball coach. Lemke is currently serving his second year as an assistant baseball coach for Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE). Prior to coaching at MSOE, Lemke was the pitching coach at Wisconsin Lutheran College.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to lead the baseball program in Shorewood,” Lemke said. “I’m excited to start practice and meet all of the student-athletes, while coaching the game I love.”
Before coaching, Lemke played at Manitowoc Lutheran High School, where he was awarded all-conference honors as a shortstop his junior year. In 2009, he graduated from Wisconsin Lutheran College with a Bachelor’s Degree in psychology. He also earned the Presidential Scholarship for Academics, and was a member of Residence Life, Judicial Board and the Concert Choir, in addition to playing on the baseball team and being involved in several intramural sports.
Besides coaching, Lemke also currently plays on the Brookfield Bulldogs, Land-O-Lakes Grand Champions in 2011 and 2012. He also has played on the Milwaukee Braves, where he was the Milwaukee Baseball League ERA Champ in 2011, and now plays for the Mud Hens, a part of the Rock League.
“Josh brings an unique mix of playing and coaching experience to Shorewood. His past work should transition well to teaching our student-athletes different aspects of the game,” Shorewood Athletic Director LeVar Ridgeway said.
