Seals Swim Club swimmers dominated their own invitational championship as the annual event ended at Kampala Parents School pool on Sunday.

Like last year, the girls’ team collected more points than the boys and produced category winners in each age group to win the four-day, Centenary Bank sponsored gala by 1,666 points.

A sisters act came into play as siblings Ssinzi Nabatanzi (99pts), Daya Yalonda Mpeera (95pts) and Neema Kangi (79pts) topped the 15 and over, 13-14 and 11-12 years’ categories, relegating Anthea Mudanye and Nicole Lutalo, Alexis Kituuka and Mercedes Mwebeiha, and Silverfin’s Karla Mugisha and Isabel Angemi to second and third places in each of the above categories respectively.

The Seals also dominated the 10 and under girls category with Natalie Lutalo, Amelia Mudanye and Ayana Muhawe garnering 50, 48 ad 45 points respectively in the event that attracted swimmers from six clubs including Makerere University, Baseline, Blue Marines and Pippsa from Kenya.

Silverfin who came second overall had Yonah Lumonya and Jethro Mugisha coming second and third in the boys’ 10 and under behind Carlton Musenze who topped with 68 points. Samora Lumonya was also second in the 13-14 category where Christopher Musenze was the top perfomer, 20 and 21 points ahead of Lumonya and Jerome Nsiiro.
