As the year comes to an end our fellow 8th graders are leaving us for high school, and with that they start their journeys into the real world. High school comes with many new things, including new sports options. If you are going to Venice Highschool, you are very lucky to be surrounded by one of the top sports schools in the state. Venice Highschool has won many state championships, some include the volleyball team being 5-time state champions, and their football team being 3-time state champions.
