Coach Mark DeAugustino

Coach DeAugustino has just recently been inducted into The National Wrestling Hall of fame in Stillwater, Oklahoma. This was on August 17th with the Florida Chapter. There was a nice article in the Dade City News on August 22nd providing more information. DeAugustino is the fourth DeAugustino to receive this Honor. Only one other family in the country has four family members. He is the second Coach in Pasco County history to get this award. What a great honor to have one of our own in the Hall of Fame!

- 9th graders will not have a grade requirement to attend homecoming since they do not have an official GPA

PHS admin reserves the right to determine student ineligibility based on events from the 9/27 cut-off date and the event. For example, if a student misses several unexcused periods or has received referrals from 9/27 to 10/12, they may become ineligible.
