After 12 years with the Littlestown wrestling program, Kerry Ferguson has officially stepped down as the Bolts head coach, according to a tweet from Littlestown Athletics' official account.
Ferguson could not be reached for comment.
Ferguson, who has more than 20 years of coaching experience, spent eight of his 12 seasons at Littlestown as head coach. The Bolts went just 2-18 in dual meets this season as they struggled with depth and often forfeited at least half its lineup. The team's last winning season was 2015, when it went 12-8.
While the past few seasons have been tough for Littlestown from a team standpoint, the program reached an important milestone this season when sophomore 170-pounder Carl Harris earned an eighth place medal at the PIAA Class 2A wrestling championships. Harris was the team's first state medalist since 2008, and the only one Ferguson coached during his eight years at the helm.
Still, Ferguson coached multiple medalists as an assistant, including 2007 state champion Cory Beaver.
