CHICAGO — Bozeman distance runner Camila Noe was named the Montana Gatorade girls track and field athlete of the year on Thursday.
Noe, who was the state’s 2017-18 girls cross country runner of the year, won the Class AA 3,200-meter run title and finished second in the 1,600.
She finished second in the 2-mile at the Brooke PR Invitational with a time of 9:54.95, which was the nation’s fastest among high school girls. At the Arcadia Invitational, Noe finished fifth with a personal-best 10:18.99 in the 3,200, which ranked No. 24 this spring at the time.
“Camila Noe worked extremely hard to get to where she is,” Missoula Hellgate coach Anders Booker said in a press release. “We’ve never had a girl go under 10 minutes for the 2-mile. For her to do that, it’s an all-time Montana performance.”
Noe has maintained an unweighted 3.52 GPA in the classroom and has signed a national letter of intent to compete on an athletic scholarship at the University of Portland this fall. She has volunteered locally with the Special Olympics and she has donated her time on behalf of multiple community road races.
