Garden Spot Wrestling Mat Club
Garden Spot Wrestling's first year was 1961. The Mat Club was formed in the early 1970's to support the Eastern Lancaster County School District (ELANCO) wrestling programs including Garden Spot High Schoool, Middle School and Elementary programs.
MEETINGS - There is a change for the 2015-2016 season. Meetings for the Garden Spot Mat Club are held the second Tuesday of each month from September through May. Meetings start at 7:00 pm and are held in room #803, Coach Adam Bunting's room in Garden Spot High School. Enter the High School at the tennis court gym entrance.
