SWIMMING siblings have bagged more than 140 awards between them.
Isabel, Alice and Jack Scholes were all water babies, with their mum Carol taking them for a dip when they were just months old.
Now, aged 11, nine and seven, the Netherton youngsters have swum their way to success with more than 140 awards between them.
Proud parents Carol and John Scholes are delighted with their success.
Mrs Scholes said: “I am quite nervous in the water and I didn’t want them to be like me. So I took them all swimming when they were just a few months old.
“I never expected them to be so fantastic.
“They have all achieved so much and they love it too, which is as important.”
Isabel and Alice are now training for their synchronised swimming certificate.
Meanwhile Jack has already completed his swimming badges and hopes to move on to play water polo.
Mrs Scholes added: “Isabel got her first badge when she was just three and quickly got the rest of them.
“Alice and Jack were the same and by the age of seven they had all got all the swimming badges they could get.
“Their swimming teacher Susan Cornish really is amazing.
“She has taught all of them and she really encourages them to do the best they can.
“She shows them all they have the potential to work hard and achieve even more, which is great to see.”
The children all go to South Crosland Junior School and are members of the Colne Valley Swimming Club.
Last year they were named runners-up in the national Amateur Swimming Association Swimtastic Family competition for their combined achievements.
Isabel has just been included in the North-East of England development swimming squad.
The girls are both training to be rookie lifeguards while Jack is looking forward to starting a water polo course when he is old enough.
