North Port High School STRIVE Award Recipients

Dominic Joyce | In fifth grade, Dominic Joyce came home one day with a flyer for youth wrestling. His dad, John, had wrestled as a young man and was happy that the flyer piqued his son’s interest.

Dominic, now a senior at North Port High School and a STRIVE Award recipient, signed up and immediately fell in love with wrestling. His dad would drive him to practice and was there for all his matches and tournaments. The two bonded over their shared passion.

Dominic’s dedication to his sport grew so strong that while in middle school he would cross the street to North Port High and participate in wrestling practices. While he couldn’t compete at this level, he would wrestle older kids, facing stronger competition. Dominic relished the challenge.
