WASHINGTON - Georgetown track & field alum Rachel Schneider fell just shy in the women’s 1,500-meter semifinals on Friday at the 2016 U.S. Olympic Team Trials, failing to advance to Sunday’s final. The 10-day trials are being held at historic Hayward Field on the campus of the University of Oregon in Eugene.

Broadcast Information
A live broadcast of the trials will be available on NBC and its family of networks in addition to their digital properties. The 10-day meet can be streamed in its entirety on the NBC Sports Live Extra app.

Recap
Schneider and fellow alum Treniere (Clement) Moser were slated for the second of a two-heat semifinal with the field of 24 getting trimmed to 12 for Sunday’s final. Moser scratched the semifinal, creating an 11-athlete field in heat two.

The heat went out slower than the first and as Schneider stayed on the rail early, she got boxed in and was forced to drop back to make a move on the outside. Though she had a good kick over the final 200 meters, she fell just shy as she clocked 4:13.43 to finish sixth in her heat, one spot shy of the automatic qualifying spots. The two time qualifiers came from the first heat and Schneider failed to advance to the finals.
