Seton Hill women's basketball adds grad transfer
Seton Hill women’s basketball coach Mark Katarski got a call recently asking if he needed a graduate assistant to join the coaching staff.
A former local basketball standout had enrolled at the university after graduating from Drexel.
Megan Marecic, a 2014 Bethel Park graduate, is pursuing a master’s degree at Seton Hill.
After talking with Marecic, Katarski learned she still had a year of eligibility to play.
So instead of getting a coach, Seton Hill gained an experienced player.
“She found us,” Katarski said. “She was already enrolled, and we had a spot available on the roster.”
She is the second grad transfer to join Katarski’s squad. Chelsea Apke finished her career at Seton Hill after transferring from Washington & Jefferson in 2014-15.
Marecic, who spent four seasons at Drexel, sat out with a red-shirt in 2015-16, and played three seasons. She was a spot starter in 2017-18, averaged 6.5 points and more than 17 minutes per game.
“Megan brings experience, and she was on a team that made four consecutive WNIT appearances,” Katarski said. “We’re excited to have her.”
Marecic scored more than 1,000 points at Bethel Park.
The 5-foot-11 left-hander will play wing at Seton Hill.
