SOME OF Horsham Blue Star Harriers’ more experienced athletes were back on show as the club claimed third place in the latest Southern Women’s League fixture.

Up against hosts and defending champions Guildford, 2010 runners up Windsor, as well as the Radley club, beyond all expectations the Blue Stars finished just two and a half points off the lead - which swung between three clubs all day.

Guildford won with 151½ points, with Windsor in second on 150 and the Blue Star team scoring 149, Radley were a distant fourth.

Among the event winners on the day were Lauren Milnthorpe, Kate Kay, Holly Webb, Emilie Blackwell, Jade Brewster and Emily Cox.
