Putting the success into perspective, more than 30 teams contested each race and Boteler were the only Warrington school to finish in top-three places.

And among the highlights on the day, Eliza Fox's performance has earned her a place at the National Junior Indoor Rowing Championships at the Copper Box Arena in London on February 28.

Lewis Johnson (Year 8) meanwhile, narrowly missed out on an individual medal as he finished fourth overall while his boys' team placed second.

The Year 8 and 9 girls' teams both finished in third place.
