There was going to be no denying the Catasauqua girls soccer team on this day.

The entire high school was dismissed at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 22, to attend the funeral services of beloved teacher Mr. Edward Whitehead, who passed away at the all-too-early age of 44.

The start of the girls soccer game against Northern Lehigh that day was pushed back from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. to give everyone on the Catty side time to mentally prepare after what was a very difficult morning.

Dave Troxell returns as girls basketball coach

Thursday, May 16, 2013 by SCOTT PAGEL in Sports

There may have been some surprised high schools in the area who thought they missed the boat when it was announced that Dave Troxell was back to coach the Catasauqua girls basketball team.

But they can rest assured that they didn't really miss out at all...

"I really only ever thought about coaching at Catty," said Troxell. "I am a die-hard Catasauqua Rough Rider, brown and white are my favorite colors. I have grown up, went to school, work, and live in Catasauqua all in the past 42 years, so it never crossed my mind to coach anywhere else."
