Pett-based athlete Grace Baker has received her third international call-up.

The Rye College student, who has had a fine winter season so far, has been selected to represent England at the ISF World Schools Cross-Country Championships in Malta on Tuesday March 27.

This follows on from the England vest she gained at the end of last season’s cross-country and her Great Britain under-20 debut in January of this year at the Bupa Great International Cross-Country Challenge.

Baker, who recently turned 16, led first claim club Aldershot to first place in the team event by finishing fourth individually in the National Cross-Country Championships at Parliament Hill, London, last weekend.
