The Purcellville Town Council last week applauded student athletes from Loudoun Valley High School for their achievements.
Recognized were: Loudoun Valley High School senior and state wrestling champion Cade Kiely; LVHS freshman and record-setting state 500 freestyle champion Sean Conway, and members of Valley’s national champions boys distance medley relay—Colton Bogucki, Nathaniel Thompson, Will Smagh and Drew Hunter. Additionally, the council announced Drew Hunter Day, and Look Up Day in honor of Blue Ridge Middle School 8th graders Ayesha Paracha and Katie Rahn.
The high point of the evening was the announcement of Dave Becker Day, a crossing guard at Emerick Elementary and Blue Ridge middle schools. A beloved figure at both schools, Becker received standing applause, emotional tributes, flowers and presents in his honor.
