Becky Megesi is on her way to the Georgia Tech Athletics Hall of Fame, where she belongs

One of the top middle distance runners in Tech history, Becky Megesi enters her 15th year as an assistant for the Yellow Jackets cross country and track & field teams.

She primarily works with the distance runners, as well as the cross country teams for both the men and women programs. Additionally, she handles many administrative functions as well as being in charge of recruiting the women's distance events.

In 2012, Megesi was inducted into the Georgia Tech Athletics Hall of Fame.

As a student-athlete at Tech, Megesi garnered all-America honors in the 1500 meters, finishing eighth at the 1999 NCAA Outdoor Championships in Boise, Idaho. She again earned all-America honors in 2000, anchoring Tech's Distance Medley Relay unit to a seventh-place finish at the NCAA Indoor Championships in Fayetteville, Ark.

Megesi also qualified for the Outdoor NCAA Championship meets in both 1999 and 2000 in the 800.

In 1998, she became the third Tech individual qualifier for the NCAA Cross Country Championship in Lawrence, Kan.

She would go on to qualify for the U.S. Olympic Trials in the 800 meters in 2000.

Megesi won ACC Championships in the 1500 in both 1998 and 1999, and earned all-ACC honors six times during her career. She currently holds the school records in the outdoor 800 (2:04.63), the indoor DMR (11:21.48), and the outdoor 4x800m relay (8:56.94).

She earned a bachelor's degree in management from Georgia Tech in 2001.
