HERTS Phoenix Senior women continue to struggle in the UK Women's National League Division Three.

After two matches of three, the team are placed at the foot of the league with everything to do in their final match at Wigan in August if they are to avoid relegation.

Prospects were good at the end of last season but poor availability for matches has meant that the team have not realised their true potential.

Just nine athletes were available to travel up to Wakefield and the team were unable to fill the team sheet.

In the javelin, St Albans Girls School pupil Peta Lundgren was sixth in the A string with 37.21m and Natalie Farman was second in the B string with a throw of 28.88m.

Emma Kavanagh returned to her early season form to take second in the 400 hurdles with a time of 67.6 and in the 100m sprint hurdles, Natalie Farman was second in the A string race with a time of 16.4 and Emma Kavanagh secured more points for the team by winning the B string race.
