Allie Ostrander kicked off the 2019 Mountain West Indoor Track and Field Championships in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Thursday with a medley distance relay victory for Boise State.
The redshirt junior helped the Broncos to a fourth straight Mountain West Indoor win in the women’s distance medley relay by running the 1,600-meter anchor leg, breaking the tape with a team time of 11 minutes, 10.43 seconds. Ostrander was joined by Boise State teammates Alexis Fuller, Kelly Moodry and Kristie Schoffield.
Ostrander, a 2015 Kenai Central grad, took the baton with about a 5-meter lead on the field, then stretched the advantage over New Mexico star distance runner Ednah Kurgat to cross the finish line almost 19 seconds ahead.
Ostrander is also scheduled to compete Friday in the women’s mile and Saturday in the 3,000-meter final.
