Black and white photograph of Rice Owls track and field athlete Tanya McIntosh Justice running on the stadium track, accompanied by text headlining his achievement and entry into the Rice Athletic Hall of Fame. Caption reads: No women’s sport at Rice has distinguished itself quite like that of track and field. One of the individuals directly responsible for that standing is TANYA McINTOSH JUSTICE (class of 1989). An eight-time all-America for the Owls, Justice holds Rice records indoors in the 400 meters, 300 yard and 400 yard distances as well as outdoors in the 400 meters, 4x100 meter-relay and sprint-medley relay. Her efforts on the track at Rice earned her six Southwest Conference Championships. Within the Rice ranks, Justice was honored as the recipient of the Eva Jean Lee Award (1986) and the Stancliff Award (1989). An outstanding student, she was selected to the SWC’s Academic Honor Team in 1989 and was recognized with the SWC Female Scholar-Athlete Award. A semifinalist at the 1988 US Olympic Trials in the 400 meters, Justice has competed both nationally and internationally for the United States. At the World University Games in Kobe, Japan in 1985, Justice took home the bronze medal in the 4x400 relay. Upon graduation from Rice, she worked in the oil and gas industry for three years. In 1992, she joined Methodist Health Care System, where she was employed at the time of her induction, as manager in the Strategic Planning and System Development Division. The native of New York married Rice all-America Byron Justice (class of 1988). The couple has one son, Jamison, who is two years old. At the time of her induction, she was pursuing a masters of business administration degree at Houston Baptist University.
