Knowsley swimmers make huge splash at gala

Primary school swimmers from Huyton and Prescot took part in a memorable gala today at Knowsley Leisure and Culture Park as schools continue to try and qualify for the Knowsley finals in April.

13 schools took part in the event which was for pupils in Years 3-6. The top two pupils in each race then went on to compete for a slot in the prestigious Sainsbury Games which will be held later on this year.

Aimee White from St Margaret Mary’s was one of the day’s top performers as she showed the form which has seen her selected for the City of Liverpool Swimming Club, although there were many other excellent individual and team displays to enjoy.

Organiser Kerstine Hogg from the Knowsley School Sports Partnership, says: “It has been a really brilliant gala – we’ve witnessed some wonderful performances. You can see some of the schools link into swimming clubs like Everton and Prescot.

“The standard of swimming at the Sainsbury Games in July is going to be extremely high!”
