wrestlers are among the highest of all high school wrestling athletes in Florida with the varsity team
ranking 2ND by GPA in our district the last 3 years. All of our coaches demand good sportsmanship and
help athletes develop a positive winning attitude and work ethic. Nearly all of our coaches rose from
the ranks of the Venice Youth Program themselves to wrestle for Venice High School.
