Greenhill Academy made home advantage count as they emerged overall best team at the one day Uganda Swimming Federation (USF) National Secondary Schools Championships held on Saturday in Kibuli.

Ampaire Namanya of Greenhill Academy was the best boy in the 14-15 category with 132 points

Greenhill, which collected 1,892 points, beat competition from Seeta Green Campus which had 1,639 point and Seeta High School Main Campus which was third with 1,537.

Seeta Green will have consolation in the fact that they topped the girls’ category with 928 points while the Main Campus topped the boys with 816 points.

However, the overall trophy went to Greenhill because they balanced it out better coming second in both categories. Seeta Main Campus finished third among the girls (591) while Green was fifth (531) in the boys.

Thirteen year old Daudi Ochieng was Green Hill’s best performer with 160 points and eight gold medals.
