Barre Repeats as Academic All-America

(AUSTIN, Texas) – Graduate student Liz Barre of the Carnegie Mellon University women's track and field team has been selected to the 2024 Academic All-America® women's cross country and track and field team as selected by the College Sports Communicators for NCAA Division III. Barre landed a spot on first team as it marks her second straight season being named an Academic All-America after being named to the second team a season ago.

This prestigious award for Barre marks the 13th time a Carnegie Mellon women's cross country or track and field athlete has been recognized as an Academic All-American and she becomes the fourth Tartan to receive the honor multiple times.

Barre completed her master's degree in energy science, technology and policy, with a concentration in mechanical engineering in May with a 4.0 GPA. This past season, Barre earned four All-American accolades, two for each the indoor and outdoor seasons. At the 2024 indoor national championships, she placed third in the high jump and fourth in the pentathlon. She then placed third at the 2024 outdoor national championships in the high jump and heptathlon. When combining Barre's indoor and outdoor seasons of 2024, she set three school records and earned 10 all-region honors.

During her senior season in 2023, Barre earned the program's first individual national championship when she won the pentathlon at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships. At that same meet, Barre placed fourth in the high jump to become the first Tartan female to earn All-America recognition in two events at the indoor championships. Over the course of her career, she is a seven-time All-American, nine-time UAA Champion and a 29-time all-region honoree while holding seven school records.

Barre was a four-year member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC), a team captain, received Tartan Leader of Tomorrow recognition, and interned at Advion, Montauk Renewables and Michael Baker International. She received Tartan Leader of Tomorrow recognition as well as the Energy Science, Technology and Policy Academic Excellence Award, an award given to the person with the highest GPA in the graduating class.
