The Farmington Hills Mercy swim and dive team captured the 2019 Division 1 state championship last weekend, fighting off Ann Arbor Pioneer by just half a point to secure the trophy.

It's the third consecutive year that Mercy has been crowned champions. 

Pioneer and Mercy finished far ahead of the rest of the field, with Mercy performing especially well in diving. 

Northville freshman Emily Roden was the state champion in the 100 fly.
