TEENAGE sprint star Annie Tagoe returned to help clinch promotion with a double success in Thames Valley Hariers' final match of the season at Coventry.

The 17-year-old, who will run at the World Youth Olympics in Singapore later this month, won both the 100m (12.0 seconds) and the 200m (24.8) as TVH secured a place in the UK Women's League Division One.

At one stage of Sunday's meeting, TVH led by just two points, but they eventually held off a strong challenge from City of Glasgow to finish on 206 points, 30 clear of their rivals.

TVH were also strengthened by the inclusion of two GB internationals - multi-eventer Phyllis Agbo and sprinter Angie Broadbelt, both of whom started out as juniors at Linford Christie Stadium.

Agbo won the long jump and shot, while Broadbelt triumphed in the 100m hurdles and B string 200m, and there was also a personal best of 1.60m for Esther Ajie in the high jump.

Heather Timmins underlined her recovery from illness and injury by winning the 3,000m in a sub-10 minute time, with Emma Grant recording a pb of the 2:10.8 in the 800m.

Lisa da Silva, who competed in the B string of both events, also won the 2,000m steeplechase, while 17-year-old pair Rebekah Wiltshire and Joanna Mobed achieved personal bests in the long jump (5.27m) and 1,500m (4:57.5) respectively.
