WORTHINGTON, OH (WCMH)–One week after a deadly crash involving the Worthington Kilbourne girls’ water polo team, players were back in the water.

A moment of silence was held before the match to remember 19-year-old Courtney Fisher. The Worthington grad was killed in last Friday’s accident, and several other people were injured.

School leaders say neighbors have come together during a tough time.

“This has been a tragic event, but it’s been incredible to watch the support of Upper Arlington, of people across the state of Ohio,” said Trent Bowers, Worthington Schools superintendent. “Our community has really rallied together and it’s neat to see other communities support us.”

Before getting in the pool, team members wrote the letters “CF” on their arms in honor of Courtney Fisher.
