Sarasota wrestling coach passes away

SARASOTA (WWSB) - A Sarasota High School wrestling coach passed away over the weekend.

Coach Tracy Lee will be remembered by students, athletes, staff members and people from the community.

Lee worked with the school’s wrestling team for the past year but was recently promoted to head coach.

“It was such a big shock. He was very well loved. Even thought he was only coaching there for a short time, all the feedback we’ve gotten from kids is that they absolutely loved him. He was very passionate and exciting,” said James Slaton who is the District Athletic Director for Sarasota County Schools

Grief counselors will be available for people at the school on Wednesday, June 5th, from 12-4 p.m.

Lee’s funeral is set for Sunday at 2 p.m. at Shore Church in Sarasota.
