Kesteven and Grantham Girls’ School under-16s travelled to Manchester last Wednesday to compete in the northern finals of the English Schools Swimming Association Girls’ Water Polo Championships.
KGGS won their first two matches to qualify them for the ESSA Under-16 National Finals at Oundle next month. They beat Manchester High School 5-2 and Leigh St Mary’s 4-3.
The team’s deserved Nationals qualification came as a result of tremendous teamwork, under the efforts of their coach Conor Coyle.
KGGS train with Grantham Water Polo Club at The Meres leisure centre twice a week.
