Horsham Blue Star Harriers’ female team took fourth place in the latest round of the Southern League, matching their results from the previous two rounds.

Kotryna Bajorinaite started the day off well for the Horsham with a convincing win in the under-17 300m hurdles in 47.7seconds and then went on to have an even easier victory in the 80m hurdles, running 12.5s.

Elsewhere wins were hard to come by though.

Holly Webb won the A string Javelin with a throw of 36.15metres and Jade Brewster dominated the Pole Vault clearing 3.40m to win before retiring to save herself for the National Championships the following day - the plan worked as Brewster collected gold in Bedford.

Rebecca Adams won the B string 3000m in 11m32.1s, just being beaten by club mate Rosie Inman, who took third place in the A string in 11m27.8s.

Frances Parkes ran well to take second place in the 400m, running 62.1s and India Parker-Smith took third place in the B event with 64.2s.

The versatile Rebecca Jennings and Kate Kaye covered several events, with Rebecca taking second place in the long jump with 5.06m, and then placed third in a competitive 100m hurdles in 15.2s as well as contesting the 100m and 200m. Kate took third place in the 1500m in 5m00.8s, before competing in the triple jump and javelin.

In the Junior events, Lucy Milnthorpe took second place in the 75m hurdles in 13.2s and then cleared 1.45m for another second placing in the high jump, where Sara Dedman was also second in the B string with 1.40m.

Megan Allerton ran well, but was narrowly beaten into second place in the 1500m running 5m13.9s, just outside her personal best.

Tabby Lee, having earlier taken second place in the B string hurdles in 14.4s then went on to win the B string discus with a throw of 16.76m, where Emma Garry threw a personal best 23.36m to take third place in the A event.

The result leaves the Blue Stars fourth overall in the table with just the one fixture, a long journey to Exeter, for their final match.
