    NOTE: THE INDIVIDUAL ALL STAR PHOTOS ARE UP!!!   https://nvslallstars.smugmug.com. Password available from your Division Coordinator and Team Rep.

    The 2018 NVSL End of Year meeting will be held on Sunday, September 9th at the Mason District Government Center (6507 Columbia Pike, Annandale, VA 22003) beginning at 6:30 pm. 
    It is important for all Team Reps (or a designated representative of the team) to attend because a vote from each team is needed to elect a new Executive Board. 

         - There are two candidates for the position of VP of Swimming for 2019-2020 and the Team Reps will be asked to select the VP at the meeting. The two candidates vying for the single position are Stewart Gordon and Jen Sayasithsena.  Please read their candidate packages.
         - The unchallenged nominees are Nancy Jessen (President), Betsy Stevenson (Director), Judy Hansen (Director), Chris Campbell (Director), Kim Locey (Treasurer), Joe Mattis (Corresponding Secretary) and Jim Shlesinger (Recording Secretary).
         - Per the NVSL Bylaws, members of the Executive Board are elected for two-year terms. Nominations may be made from the floor and the election shall be by majority vote of the Team Representatives present and voting.

    Also at the meeting we will recap the 2018 season highlights and look forward to the next summer season.  The tentative agenda is below.  We also hope to get feedback and suggestions on any issues of interest to the League.

  • Stars Align for Three Virgos at Little Rocky Run

    Sun, 8-5-2018 | Paul Parry

    At a muggy and damp Little Rocky Run yesterday, amid the crowd and under the gaze of the immortal Bob York, three All Stars reached record holder status.

    In the 11-12 Freestyle, Michael Mullen of Old Keene Mill stunned the crowd in an upset over the current record-holder, Donovan Kovalsky, finishing with a blazing kick and touching in 26.18.  Donovan had just lowered the mark to 26.20 the week before.

    Then in the 13-14 Girls Back, Hunter Mill’s Alexandra Dicks tied 18-time All American Janet Hu’s 29.75.  Janet’s record was set in 2010 while she was at Mosby Woods.

    The last record was set in the Boys 9-10 Breast, when Brandon Lesser of Daventry lowered his own mark of 37.28, touching in 37.26.
