Yeshiva University’s De­partment of Athletics has announced the hiring of Er­ica Lemm as Assistant Di­rector of Athletics. Lemm, whose appointment com­menced on August 11, will be responsible for the com­pliance and day-to-day op­erations of YU’s seven wom­en’s varsity sports and will oversee the recreation and intramural opportunities for the university’s female stu­dent base.

“I am both excited and honored to join the Yeshiva athletics family,” said Lemm. “This is a tremendous opportunity to be a part of a well-known institution and I look forward to being a part of the continued success of Ye­shiva Athletics.”

Prior to her appointment with Yeshi­va, Lemm served as sports coordinator for Washtenaw Community College, a two-year institution in Ann Arbor, Michigan where she was responsible for the overall operation of the athletics department. She spearhead­ed efforts that increased the number of participants at the college from 165 to nearly 700 in just three years.

A graduate of Cen­tral Michigan University, where she earned a Mas­ter of Arts in Sport Admin­istration, Lemm’s previous experience also includes a Group Events/Sales Intern­ship with the Detroit Pistons in 2010, a student ambassa­dor with NASCAR Kinetics, as well as a sports intern and game day volunteer with the Special Olym­pics Michigan in 2009.

“Erica is a wonderful administrator with a proven track record in collegiate athletics of increasing athletic opportunities for both in­tramural participants and varsity student-ath­letes,” said Yeshiva University Director of Ath­letics, Joe Bednarsh. “I have no doubt she will bring energy, excellence, and a spirit of friend­ly professionalism and will help improve what is already a growing program.”
