BOZEMAN – Camila Noe in undoubtedly one of the best runners to place her feet on the Montana track. Just 13 days ago she ran the 3,200-meter run in 10 minutes, 21.76 seconds in Billings, topping Billings Senior’s Christina Aragon’s 10:22.10. It’s the fastest time on Montana soil for a female prep athlete.
“It’s kind of unbelievable that I did that,” said Camila Noe.
When asked how she feels about being one of the best runners in Montana’s history, Noe was humble in her answer, attributing here success to those who came before her.
“It’s a cool feeling to know that I’m up there with Christina Aragon and Zoey Nelson and all of the Aragon sisters,” said Noe. “It’s pretty cool to think that you’re part of that great group of individuals that have done amazing things at college.”
Noe calls Aragon her inspiration in running. The Bozeman native may have topped the Bronc, but it’s not a 3,200 meter state record, which Aragon still owns in her 10:23.31 performance at Missoula in 2013. However, next week at state, Noe wants to officially claim the record. She believes she can run faster than the fastest time she set just two weeks ago.
“I think with Annie (Hill) there and a few other people,” said Noe. “I think it’s definitely worth a shot to run under that again.”
