Ostrander receives 2nd Athlete of Year award

Boise State’s Allie Ostrander received her second straight Mountain West Female Athlete of the Year award Wednesday in an announcement by the collegiate conference.

Ostrander, a 2015 Kenai Central High graduate, is only the second athlete to win the award in back to back years, joining fellow Boise State alum Emma Bates, who did it in 2014 and 2015. Ostrander’s honor is the fifth Athlete of the Year award for a Boise State athlete, the most of any school in the conference.

Ostrander capped her superlative season with a repeat title in the women’s 3,000-meter steeplechase at the Division I NCAA Track and Field Championships.

In the fall, Ostrander led the Broncos to their highest team finish of sixth at the NCAA Cross-Country Championships with a fourth-place individual finish. Ostrander was later named the NCAA Elite 90 Award winner for the athlete with the highest GPA at all 90 championship competitions.

Ostrander also earned two All-American honors in the indoor season in the women’s distance medley relay and the 3,000 meters.
