Herndon Swim League Celebrates 40th Anniversary and Awards Scholarships

On Saturday July 22 the Herndon Swim League gathered for the 30th Annual All-League Meets. All swimmers in the league are eligible to swim in this two-tiered meet.

The league was founded in 1983 as a developmental league by six community swim teams. Currently the league consists of nine teams from Herndon, Fairfax and Centreville. Four of the six founding members were present or represented and recognized at the meet. They included Bonnie Bunting from Reflection, Mary Sides from Hunters Creek, Bill Liedtke who is from Meadows and is now the Commissioner, and Becca Kuhns and Rose Keelor, daughters of Jean Kuhns from Four Seasons. They represented their mother who passed away a month ago.

The Herndon Swim League awards scholarships to swimmers who graduate from high school each year. This year’s eleven recipients of scholarships were Annalise Williams, Jonathan Leon-Guerrero, Amelia Bollerer, Claire Babka, Zach Babka, Sam Kilkeary, Cecelia Meunier, Daniel Moon, Matthew Kim, Audrey Eng and Rachel Jansky.
