Melanie qualifies for another NCAA championship!!
My daughter qualified for the NCAA Division 1 Outdoor Championships, in the 3K Steeplechase, for the second year in a row — yay Melanie! She won her heat, in spite of a fall in the first water pit — sure wish they’d gotten that on film, but I will have to make do with the reporter’s account of how she popped right back up again as if nothing happened. AND — her 2 teammates who run the steeple also qualified in the next heat! GO DUCKS!!
