PUPILS from Ribblesdale took victory in the swimming to seal their place at this year’s new-look SPAR Lancashire School Games county finals.

The team from the secondary school competed against five schools from the Ribble Valley and Hyndburn to finish in first place, and will progress to the Winter Games on March 19th in Blackpool where the pupils will compete against others from across the county.

To get to the Winter Games, Ribblesdale competed internally at Level 1, before taking part in Level 2 events in district inter-school competitions.

Richard Varey, chair of the Lancashire School Games organising committee, said: “A big well done to all the pupils who have taken part in this year’s Level 1 and 2 competitions, and congratulations to Ribblesdale for getting through to the finals.”
