Padua rule the pool at primary schools’ championships

St Antony of Padua took home double honours from today’s primary schools’ swimming championships at Wavertree Aquatics Centre, finishing first in both the girls and boys’ competition for small schools.

Booker Avenue’s boys took home the trophy for large schools with King David finishing in the gold medal position in the girls’ section.

Swimmers battled it out against each other in individual races before the relays  gave the gala a typically exciting finale.

There were only a few points separating the top teams after a thrilling morning of  action with Belvedere Preparatory School extremely unlucky to finish second in both the boys and girls’ competitions for small schools.

The winning schools will now go on to represent Liverpool at the Sainsbury Games in July where they will do battle with other teams in the region for the right to be crowned champions of Merseyside.
