8/5/2015 - A coaching change that on the surface sounds worthy of ESPN coverage (if it had any actual controversy), Ryan Bunting has stepped down as head coach to make room for his older brother Adam.
Adam Bunting, a Garden Spot graduate and former GS wrestler, has been hired as the new Art teacher for Garden Spot High School. Adam returns to us from Palmyra High School where he was the Art teacher for the past 9 years and Palmyra's head wrestling coach for the past 6 years.
Adam stated he is "...passionate about the sport and the program here. Being at several open mats over the past few years, I know it's a great group of kids, elementary through high school. As a former Garden Spot wrestler, it feels like I should be here. Its always cool to come back to where you came from. I'm excited to get to know the kids more, get to some open mats and get some things rolling. I'm excited to be coaching with my brother too."
Ryan Bunting's reign as head coach for 8 weeks can be viewed as highly successful. Ryan never lost a dual meet as head coach and steps down as the only undefeated head wrestling coach in Garden Spot history.
