Pending school board approval, which should come at the July meeting, Cocalico is expected to promote from within to fill its vacant boys basketball head coaching position.

According to Cocalico Athletic Director Whitney Seltzer, Seth Sigman, the former head Jr. High boys coach, will be recommended to succeed Travis Wealand as head varsity coach.

Wealand was a coach in the Cocalico basketball program for the last 15 seasons, including the past 10 as head coach. Under his leadership, Cocalico went 130-108, won three section titles (‘08-’09, ‘09-’10, and ‘10-’11) and appeared in one L-L League championship game (‘08-’09).

This past season Cocalico went 18-7 and finished second in a highly-competitive Section Three race. The Eagles qualified for both the L-L League and District Three playoffs this year, and played a post-season game at the Giant Center in Hershey, a first for the program.

Sigman, a fourth-grade teacher at Denver Elementary, is a 2002 graduate of Cocalico and has been an assistant under Wealand the last several seasons.

We’ll have more on this pending hiring in next week’s edition of The Ephrata Review.
