Pentangular Swimming Gala Success
Monday, 01 January 2007
Bolton School Boys' Division has won the Pentangular Swimming Gala and retained the shield that they have now won in nine of the last ten years.
Begun in 1987, the Pentangular Swimming Gala between Bolton School, Bury Grammar School, Hulme Oldham, QEGS Blackburn and Merchant Taylor's Crosby, is now in its twentieth year. The standard is always very high as each school selects their top swimmer or relay team from Under 10, 11, 12 and 13 years of age categories. The swimmers compete in individual, medley and freestyle relays as well as in the backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly and freestyle races. Merchant Taylor's were unable to take part this year.
