Grange School reaffirmed their supremacy as the undisputed kings of the pool by emerging champions of the Zenith Bank Inter-School Swimming Gala (Primary Category) at Ikoyi Club at the weekend.

Grange School reaffirmed their supremacy as the undisputed kings of the pool by emerging champions of the Zenith Bank Inter-School Swimming Gala (Primary Category) at Ikoyi Club at the weekend.

The win ensures Grange completed a double as its secondary school earlier triumphed in their class a few weeks ago. 

A heavy rain had forced the suspension of the programme on May 21 and by the time proceedings resumed on Saturday, there was no looking back for the Ikeja-based elite school, as its swimmers garner 10 gold, three silver and four bronze medals. 

St. Saviour’s and Children’s International Schools settled for second and third places with 7-8-9 and 5-9-4  medals respectively. 

The likes of Tobi Benson of CIS, Olumayowa Kuti and Teniola Akin-Olugbade  (both Grange) were among the top performers, but worth mentioning is the courageous display of seven-year-old Ogheneruno Jason Atebe of Priory Preparatory School, who won gold in the 33.3m butterfly and silver in 33.3m freestyle.
