Halesowen swimmers travelled to Worcester to compete in round 1 of the National Arena League. Last campaign Halesowen battled fiercely to avoid relegation from division 1. This first round gala was a cruel reminder of the standard Halesowen need to achieve to avoid relegation this time around. On the night Halesowen finished 6th and could only muster a couple of wins, both coming in the Men’s relays. The winning medley relay team consisted of Mark Laing, Josh Bradley, James Cuthbert and Ryan Larkin – these four were joined by Robert Jennings and club debutant Ryan Coley to win the freestyle relay.
