Ben Smith, Owen Hastings, Adam Page and David Comer came first in the 15+ boys free relay and Charlotte Graham, Emily Kelly, Claire Haines and Jo McGurk won the 15+ girls free and medley relay.
Solihull competed in every race with some of the younger swimmers competing for the first time in a gala.
