  • Great Fun and One Last Record at Individual All Stars

    Sat, 8-5-2017 | Paul Parry

    Sully Station hosted a fabulous end-of-the-season meet today, with great weather, amazing vendors, and entertaining live interviews on a Jumbo-Tron.  The meet was capped with an NVSL-record swim by Donaldson Run's Charlie Greenwood, whose 37.28 set a new mark in the 9-10 Boys 50m Breaststroke, breaking Johnny Bradshaw's 37.36 from 2014.
    Congrats to Charlie and the rest of the league's swimmers, parents and coaches, and we can't wait till next year!

  • Suntans Fade but Memories Last Forever

    Tue, 8-1-2017 | Kelly Parry - NVSL President

    Isn’t this League great?!  I hope it was a summer to remember. 

    Congratulations to all swimmers who achieved their goal this summer: team record, personal best, first A-Meet, legal time in the breaststroke, swam a 50 butterfly, showed good sportsmanship, made some new friends, and more.  Huge thanks to the parents, coaches, team reps, officials, meteorologists, and Division Coordinators for making it all work.

    Notes:
    - If any of you discovered missing awards – stop by Sully Station Pool on Friday from 8 am to noon.
    - Team Reps – complete and turn in the Seeding Survey so that next year can be even better.  Also the Meets Worked Spreadsheet.

    Good luck to the All Stars athletes participating at the meet at Sully Station on August 5th.  (Keep up with scratches, move-ups and the latest psych sheets here.)
