Bruno Buonsanto was named Wednesday the Gulf High girls basketball coach, athletic director Shari McFarlane announced.
Buonsanto replaces Claire Ennis, who coached Gulf the past two seasons. Ennis, who was named as the successor to Mike Quarto back in March 2012, compiled an overall record of 44-11 with two district titles during her tenure. Buonsanto was an assistant on Ennis’ staff last season and has been heavily involved with youth basketball in the New Port Richey area.
Buonsanto will be losing the program’s best player of the past three seasons in forward Kayla Kivinski, who will be playing college basketball at Missouri Southern this fall.
