Alumna Rachel Schneider '09 earns a spot on Team USA for the World Championships in Track and Field

Rachel will head to Doha, Qatar to compete in the World Championships


With her trademark ponytail, effervescent smile and chin held high, STA Alumna Rachel Schneider '09 is continuing to carry her baton of STA running success forward.

Despite suffering from a cold prior to and during the USA National Track & Field Championships, Rachel earned a spot on Team USA for the upcoming World Championships in Doha, Qatar.

“This past week has been a huge reminder of the importance of remaining calm in the chaos, focusing on what’s in our control, practicing perspective, maintaining belief and focus, and leaning into the power and positivity of my support system. It wasn’t a perfect situation, or a perfectly executed race on my end, but a lot of positives and some really valuable lessons to take from it.”

Congratulations, Rachel!  We are very proud of your dedication and commitment to your sport as well as your continued healthy perspective and insistence on life balance.

Saints Pride is headed to Qatar!
