Inspirational performances

Swimmers from across the city turned in many memorable performances as the Liverpool City Schools’ Swimming Championships were held at the Wavertree Aquatics Centre. St Edward’s won the secondary schools girls’ trophy with St Margaret’s finishing first in the boys competition. Booker Avenue won the large primary schools competition for girls with King David triumphant in the boys section. They will now go on to represent the city in the Merseyside Schools’ Swimming Championship which will be held in July. Belvedere Preparatory School came out on top in the girls competition for smaller primary schools with Our Lady of Assumption’s boys also placed first. A disability gala was also held with swimmers from Aigburth High, Palmerston, Phoenix Primary and Sandfield Park thrilling the watching crowd with a number of memorable and inspirational performances. Event organiser, Nicola Horton, said she had been “blown away” by the quality of the swimming, adding it had been the best competition for “many, many years”.
