BIRMINGHAM, England- Former Rice women's track athlete Lennie Waite finished third at the British Championships in the 3000 m steeplechase, running a 10:04.97. She, and two of her fellow Scots, gave Scotland a 1-2-3 finish in the event.
Waite was winning the event at the 1000 m and 2000 m mark, before slipping to a bronze medal finish.
