Bolton School Boys’ Division is currently national ESSA Water Polo Champions at U18, U15 and U13 level, having successfully defended all age group titles in the 2015-16 season.
Monday evening saw them set off in their own pool in an unprecedented attempt to hold all national titles at all age groups for a third consecutive year! Their pursuit of another year of national dominance began strongly with the U18 team progressing through to the national final in Watford on 3 March without hiccup, scoring 43 goals and conceding just 5. Averaging more than 10 goals per game in what is only an 8 minute each way tie, the U18s beat St Ambrose 15-1, King Edward School Birmingham 7-4, Bradford Grammar School 12-0 and Manchester Grammar School 9-0.
The following evening the U15s team also won through to the national final, overcoming St Bede’s and St Joseph’s Catholic College 5-0, Ripley 8-0, Grantham 3-0 and Manchester Grammar School 5-1. They ended the tournament, held in Manchester, with maximum points and a goal difference of +20.
The U13s' final will take place in the coming weeks with the national final in this age group set for May.
Bolton School remains the only School to have held all three national ESSA titles simultaneously.
