BOLTON School continued its remarkable national dominance in water polo when the under-15s boys won the English Schools title.

It was the 12th straight national championship won by the school's boys division over the three age groups it is competed at.

The u15s beat Dulwich College 7-3 in the English Schools’ Swimming Association (ESSA) final in Northampton to secure the latest in the school's amazing sequence of national triumphs.

Six teams competed in the final, and the local boys powered through all their four games to lift the title.

Despite being a player down for four minutes in their opening game, they resoundingly beat Whitgift 8-2 before ensuring they finished top of their group with an 8-4 victory over Haberdashers’ Aske’s Boys’ School.

Trinity were no match for them in the semi-final either as the Bolton team won 6-2, and they finished the job in style against Dulwich College in the final.

During their outstanding run of recent success on the national stage the school last May became the first in the country ever to win national titles in all three age groups for three years running.

And their stunning domination of the English schools' game shows no sign of letting up as they have this year made it a quadruple triple of ESSA National Championship titles at u18s, u15s and u13s.
