Special to The Message

Reitz Memorial High School has named Lee Auker as the Girls’ Basketball Head Coach, effective immediately.

Auker has been a coach in the Girls’ Basketball program since 2012 and just completed the basketball season as the Interim Head Coach. The team finished 22-4 under his guidance, winning the conference and a sectional title. He currently holds the position of Maintenance Manager at Reitz Memorial.

“Lee is a great addition to our coaching staff here at Memorial, said Athletic Director Matt Weber. “He puts in a lot of time for the girls’ basketball program and helps many other programs during his off time. We are looking forward to the upcoming seasons with Lee leading the way.”

“I am excited about the opportunity and welcome the challenge that being a head coach brings,” said Auker. “Not just the basketball piece, but the teaching of life lessons to a group of student athletes. Teamwork, dedication, time management, discipline, trust, and so many other lessons can be learned from athletics, and I enjoy having the chance to help young people.”
