Allie Ostrander, a 2015 graduate of Kenai Central, turned in a dominant victory Friday at the NCAA West Region championship in Sacramento, California.
Ostrander, a redshirt junior at Boise State, ran the six kilometers in 19 minutes, 9 seconds, for her second West Region crown.
She also helped Boise State to second place at the meet. The Broncos finished four points behind Oregon to qualify for the Division I Cross Country Championship on Nov. 17 in Madison, Wisconsin.
Ostrander has won two NCAA outdoor national titles in the 3,000-meter steeplechase, but has not won a cross-country national crown. As a true freshman in 2015, she finished second. That was the year she pocketed her other West Region crown.
Ostrander missed 2016 with an injury, then finished second in the West Region and fourth in the national meet in 2017.
