SAEGERTOWN, Pa. – Saegertown Jr/Sr High School Assistant Principal Kylene Koper issued a statement Friday evening, announcing the passing of longtime Saegertown girls basketball coach Steve Scott.
“It is with great sadness that I inform you of the passing of long-time coach, mentor, and friend Steve Scott,” the statement said.
“Coach Scott has served our community as a girls’ basketball coach for thirty-four years. Last year we recognized Coach Scott’s commitment to our community by naming our gymnasium in his honor. Many will remember Coach Scott for his success on the court, but those who played for him will remember his compassion and the lessons learned both on and off the court.
“Please help us in providing support for any student, staff member, or individual affected by our sudden loss. Counselors will be available at SHS on Monday and Tuesday for all students regardless of hybrid school day attendance. If you have concerns about your child, please contact the School Counselor or the School Office. Virtual counseling appointments are available at this link.
“On behalf of Saegertown Schools and the PENNCREST School District, we extended our sincere condolences to the Scott family.”
