Stony Brook senior Lucy Van Dalen made a late charge but finished in second place in the 1500m at the 2011 NCAA Division I Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Des Moines, Iowa, on Saturday afternoon.

The result means that Van Dalen is a first team All-American in the 1500 m. She finished in a time of 4:15.33.

Early in the race, Van Dalen settled in on the outside, content with running in the middle of the pack. By the last lap, she had moved to the very front when Villanova's Sheila Reid burst past on the way to a runaway victory in 4:14:57.

It's the second consecutive year that Van Dalen has earned All-America honors at the NCAA championships, after finishing in eighth a year ago.

Van Dalen also finished in second in her heat on Friday. Another runner tripped her, but Van Dalen still managed to finish with a time of 4:18.5.
