ATLANTA – Georgia Tech rookie runner Renee Metivier (Highland Village, Texas) has earned a berth to compete in the women’s 3000-meter steeplechase at the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships, the NCAA announced today. The four-day event will be held at Hayward Field on the campus of the University of Oregon in Eugene, Ore.
