Halesowen Swimmers travelled to Solihull on Saturday 30th April for round 1 of the Mercian league. The league attracts clubs from across the West Midlands so competition is often fierce and Saturday was no exception. Despite many strong performances Halesowen finished the evening fifth. Event winners were Greg Sheppard in the 12 and under 100m breaststroke and Emily Jay in the girls open age 100m individual medley (by just one hundredth of a second!).
