Christina Hillman, a 2011 graduate of St. Thomas More Academy in Magnolia, will compete for Iowa State University in the NCAA track and field West Regionals May 29-31, trying to advance to the NCAA championships. Those are scheduled for June 11-14 in Eugene, Ore. Hillman will participate in the shot put.

Hillman is currently ranked fourth nationally in the NCAA in the shot put. She won the Big 12 Conference championship May 17 in Lubbock, Texas, with a throw of 57 feet, 8.5 inches, setting a record for Fuller Track Stadium. Her result was nearly four feet longer than the nearest competitor.

The winning throw improved her Iowa State record by 7.5 inches and ranks 16th in the world this outdoor season.

Hillman, a junior for the Cyclones, was an All-American as a sophomore for both the indoor and outdoor seasons and is a candidate again this season. She was named to the Academic All-Big 12 Conference first team last year.
