Kenai’s Ostrander makes The Bowerman preseason watchlist

Allie Ostrander, a 2015 graduate of Kenai Central High School, is on the watchlist for collegiate track and field’s top honor for the third time.

This week, Ostrander, a redshirt junior at Boise State, opened the season on The Bowerman watchlist, as chosen by the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.

Ostrander has won the last two NCAA championships in the 3,000-meter steeplechase, but this is the first time she opens the season on The Bowerman watchlist. During the 2018 season, she worked her way onto the watchlist twice during the season.

Ostrander opened her indoor season on Dec. 1, 2018, by running her first indoor 5,000 meters in almost three years. At the Sharon Colyear-Danville BU Season Opener, she reset her school record by placing fourth in 15 minutes, 16.83 seconds. The time ranks her seventh in NCAA event history.
