FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Duke senior Molly Lehman finished seventh Saturday in the finals of the 1500m at the 2009 NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships, posting a two-second lifetime best to earn the first All-America honors of her career during the final day of competition at the University of Arkansas.

Lehman clocked 4:15.19 to finish in seventh and score two points. Her time was less than a second off the standing outdoor school record of 4:14.81 held by Olympian Shannon Rowbury. The mark also qualified Lehman for the senior race at the USATF National meet June 25-28 in Eugene, Ore. Today marked the second personal best broken by the senior this weekend, as she had already set a new PR of 4:17.20 during prelims on Thursday night.

On Friday night, Duke senior Patricia Loughlin clocked 10:15.56 in the finals of the 3000m steeplechase to take 10th overall, after entering the meet seeded 12th.

Loughlin missed All-America honors by just one spot but is also qualified for the senior race in Eugene in two weeks.
