EUGENE, Ore. -- Christina Aragon is now a seven-time All-American.

The former Billings Senior standout in her senior year at Stanford added another first-team All-American finish in the women's 1,500-meter run at the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships on Saturday.

Aragon placed eighth with a time of 4 minutes, 12.63 seconds to secure the final first-team All-American position. Anna Camp of BYU won in a time of 4:08.53. Sage Hurta of Colorado was second with a time of 4:09.42, and Aragon's Stanford teammate Ella Donaghu was third in 4:09.66.

Meanwhile, Lucy Corbett, another Bozeman native at Montana State, earned second-team All-American honors in the women's high jump on Saturday.

Corbett cleared 5 feet, 11.25 inches to finish tied for 11th. She cleared both the 5-8 and 5-10 heights in two jumps, then cleared 5-11.25 on her third attempt. She missed all three attempts at 6-00.50.

"I was very, very happy that I made that jump," Corbett said of her eventual All-America leap at 5-11.25. "I was hoping for 6-00.50, but I'm happy with that jump. It's close enough to my PR where I'm glad that I got to take attempts at a higher bar.

"It's been awesome to be here. It was just fun to watch those girls make those super high heights. It's just really fun to be able to compete at this level."

Aragon and Corbett are the third and fourth Treasure State natives to earn All-American status at this year's NCAA Championships at Hayward Field. Benji Phillips, a Glasgow native now at North Dakota State, and Duncan Hamilton, a Bozeman native running at Montana State, garnered All-American accolades earlier in the week.
