    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!
