Boise State junior Allie Ostrander was named Wednesday to the 2018 Women’s Mid-Outdoor Watch List for the Bowerman award, college track and field’s highest honor.

The 2015 Kenai Central graduate is one of 10 female athletes currently on the list of potential winners. The other nine include two other distance runners. The Bowerman is awarded to track and field’s top student-athlete, and is an illustrious honor on any track and field resume.

Ostrander is the first Boise State honoree in program history to be included on the Bowerman Watch List.

Ostrander is a redshirt sophomore that has once again dazzled on the track in 2018. Ostrander most recently ran the fastest women’s outdoor time in the world in the 3,000-meter steeplechase with a March 31 victory at the Stanford Invitational, a time that ranked 14th in NCAA history in the event.

Prior to that, Ostrander enjoyed a successful indoor season that included a second-place finish in the women’s 3,000 meters championship and a school record in the Broncos distance medley relay team. Ostrander’s efforts helped Boise State finish 17th in the team race, the best finish ever at the indoor championships in program history.
