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.
Bolton School remains the only School to have held all three national ESSA titles simultaneously.
