HALESOWEN swimmers had to settle for fifth place when they took part in the second round of the West Midlands National League at Worcester.
Boldmere dominated from the outset as Halesowen found wins hard to come by.
However, Chloe Finch managed to prove successful in the butterfly and freestyle, while Richard Spoor romped home first in both the individual medlay and breaststroke.
Halesowen’s open mens relay team were unbeatable in the medlay through Josh Bradley, Jacob Darby and Michael Edmonds, who were joined by Zach Collins and Mark Laing for the final freestyle relay, where they were just touched out by 0.3 seconds.
Boldmere were clear winners with 251 points, while a ding-dong battle developed for second spot, Abingdon Vale coming out on top with 181 ahead of Long Eaton 167, Worcester 167, Halesowen 158 and Leicester Sharks 119.
