Seremula hired as girls hoop head coach

Wednesday, May 23, 2018 by JEFF MOELLER in Sports

Mark Seremula again happened to be at the right place at the right time.

Three years ago, Seremula left his girls’ basketball assistant’s job at Wilson and met then Catty head girls’ basketball coach Ed Seidick at the Roughies’ annual athletic department golf tournament. Ironically, Seremula is a Catasauqua resident.

It proved to be a productive connection in many ways as Seremula joined Seidick’s staff.

Perennial Colonial League and District 11 contenders for a number of years, the loss of key veterans and a handful of budding players pointed to a rebuilding year that eventually resulted in a 2-17 season.

This year, the Roughies found themselves in a similar situation with four seniors and a number of inexperienced players on the varsity level for the first time. The final results again were...
