Rita Page died September 20. As a long-time official with Potomac Valley, she was a Starter Instructor and a member of the Officials Committee. She was the PVS Certification Officer for 10 years. Despite being treated for cancer, she was available to help her successor in that position learn the job. She was supportive or other officials, always happy and loved working swim meets, whether they were summer league meets, college meets, or PVS meets. She will be missed!
The PVS community mourns the loss of one of our athletes, Abby Shapiro, of All Star Aquatics. You can read more about her life in this Washington Post article.
The PVS community extends condolences to her family and friends.
