Ostrander named Boise State Female Track Athlete of Year

Recently turned pro runner Allie Ostrander picked up one more award from her illustrious career at Boise State University, picking up the Boise State 2018-19 Female Athlete of the Year honor Friday.

Ostrander put an end to her collegiate career June 30, running her final steeplechase event in Bronco colors with a 13th-place result among a loaded field at the Prefontaine Classic at Stanford. Just two days later, Ostrander announced she would turn pro, and subsequently joined Brooks Running to become a member of the Brooks Beasts Track Club.

On July 28, Ostrander finished fourth in her first pro race in the steeplechase at the USA Track and Field Outdoor Championships, earning a spot on Team USA for the World Championships in Doha, Qatar, in late September.

The 2015 Kenai Central grad crafted a record-breaking career for the Boise State Broncos. Ostrander is the only three-time Division I national champion in school history, winning three straight 3,000-meter steeplechase crowns, and was a regular contender for victories in the cross-country season.

In her senior season, Ostrander earned first-team All-America honors in cross-country and indoor track (in the 3,000 and 5,000 meters) and was named West Region Women’s Athlete of the Year in cross country and the West Region Track Athlete of the Year.

Ostrander was also named a semifinalist for The Bowerman award, college track and field’s highest honor.
