Crawley fourth at Manchester

A depleted Crawley Women’s team put up a good fight in the final UKWALg match at Leigh, Manchester on Sunday to finish fourth.

Kim Baptiste and team manager Jo Rowland emerged as the only winners on the day with Baptiste, after being squeezed into third place in the 100m in 12.13s steamed to a fine 200m win in 24.12s.

Rowland, who not only manages the team but also competes in several events at each match finished fourth in the long jump with 5.59m, and third in the high jump clearing 1.60m came out on top in the shot putt with a fine effort of 13.46.

Double Gold for Baptiste at Manchester

Crawley’s Kim Baptiste achieved a double gold medal in the English Championships, which incorporated the Inter-county Championships, at a wet and windy Manchester over the weekend.

The Crawley sprinter is certainly enjoying a purple patch at the moment and were it not for excessive winds she would have again improved the Sussex 100m record.

Baptiste eased through her 100 and 200 metres heats before cruising to impressive wins clocking a windy 11.35s for the 100 metres title and 23.40s for the 200 metre crown.
