Mission accomplished. The football team's historic run to its third state title kicked o a stellar 2021-22 school year for the Venice sports programs. The inaugural beach vol- leyball team's surprise run to Tallahassee in that sport's first, sanctioned season proved a superb way to close out the year. In between was a plethora of bravura performances across many programs as seniors took their final bows and underclassmen positioned themselves for success in seasons to come. When it came to construct- ing the various Sun Preps All- Area teams this season, often one had to look no further than Venice to develop a nucleus. For example, a whopping 17 Indians landed on the All-Area football first team with seven more finding spots on the second team. The Indians also dominated the swim scene, with seven boys and seven girls on those All-Area squads. Also, several athletes gained honors on more than one team, including Ireland Ferguson (volleyball, beach volleyball), Jayshon Platt (football, bas- ketball, track), Myles Weston (football, basketball, track), Elliot Washington II (Football, track), Austin Bray (football, basketball), Keyon Sears (foot- ball, track), Brian Williams (cross country, track), George Philip (football, weightlifting). In all, 60 boys and 47 girls were named to their respective Sun Preps All-Area first and second teams. Breaking down the honorees by classes reveals a balanced girls contingent and a senior-laden boys squad. The girls are spread almost evenly across the grades, with 16 seniors, 10 juniors, 11 sophomores and 10 freshmen. The boys are repped by a 36 seniors, 19 juniors and 5 sophomores. The Venice junior class is particularly strong and should provide the Indians sports teams with a wealth of senior leadership next year. Of that group, a national spotlight will shine on football stars Damon Wilson II and Elliot Washington II. Eight coaches – John Peacock (football), Lamont Andrews (boys golf ), Charlie Powell (boys track), John Richards (beach volleyball), Wayne Robertson (girls tennis), Brenda Clark (girls cross coun- try), Cary Willgren (girls golf ) and Jana Minorini (swimming) – have been named coaches of the year in their sports.
