Oakton High School Girls Swim and Dive Team are honored in the House of Delegates Gallery in Richmond.

Last Wednesday, the Virginia House of Delegates unanimously adopted House Joint Resolution 527 commending the Oakton High School Girls Varsity Swim and Dive Team for winning the statewide AAA Virginia High School League Championship this year. Members of the winning Oakton Girls Swim Team -- as well as the Boys Swim Team who came in second place in the state contest this year -- were in the Gallery of the House of Delegates when Delegate Mark Keam (D-35) -- wearing a burgundy and gold tie – and Delegate Jim LeMunyon (R-67) spoke on the floor congratulating the Oakton Athletes.

Three days later, on Saturday, March 10, Delegate Keam again took to the House Floor to congratulate the Oakton Girls Basketball Team for winning the state championship the night before. As he spoke on Saturday, Delegate Keam held up an Oakton teeshirt that Oakton Seniors gave him.
