DES MOINES, Iowa - Juliet Bottorff became Duke's first ever women's outdoor track & field champion, taking top honors in the 10,000-meter run Wednesday at the 2011 NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships in Des Moines, Iowa. She raced to a time of 34:25.86 to best the field of 24. The sophomore from Newark, Del., was in third with 600 meters to go before moving to the outside and taking over first. Bottorff is the third ACC student-athlete to win the women's 10K and first since NC State's Kristin Price in 2002. Additionally, she is Duke's first track & field national champion since Shannon Rowbury finished first in the mile at the 2006 indoor meet.
Virginia Tech junior Matthias Treff became the program's first ever All-American in the men's javelin after posting a second-place finish. He registered a mark of 255-6 (77.88m).
