Most recently, Bottorff earned two All-America honors following a third-place finish in the women’s 10,000 meters and a fifth-place finish in the women’s 5,000 meters at the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships in Eugene, Ore. Bottorff clocked a 5,000 time of 15:55.94, which ranks second on Duke’s all-time list.
