Ostrander posts top-10 historic time for 10K at Stanford

Boise State’s Allie Ostrander posted the 10th-fastest outdoor time in NCAA history for the women’s 10,000 meters with a scorching run Friday at the Stanford Invitational at Cobb Track and Angell Field in California.

Ostrander, a redshirt junior, finished third in a loaded field that included professional athletes with a time of 32 minutes, 6.71 seconds. The time also broke the Boise State school record, formerly held by Emma Bates, and the Mountain West Conference record by nearly seven seconds.

The 2015 Kenai Central grad was the top collegiate runner in the race, following pro runners Emily Sisson (first place at 30:49.57) and runner-up Molly Huddle (30:58.46). Fourth place went to Syracuse’s Paige Stoner in 32:07.36 and fifth went to UAA’s Caroline Kurgat in 32:08.09.
