Ostrander receives Elite 90 award, will attempt distance double

Boise State redshirt junior Allie Ostrander was announced as the women’s Elite 90 award winner Thursday for Division I Indoor Track and Field.

The honor is given to the top male and female student-athlete with the highest GPA at each NCAA championship site. Ostrander, a 2015 Kenai Central grad, earned it with a 4.0 GPA majoring in kinesiology.

Ostrander will be racing this weekend at the 2019 Indoor Track and Field Championships in Birmingham, Alabama. Ostrander is entered in the women’s 3,000 and 5,000-meter races, a distance double that she is attempting for the second time in her collegiate career.

A win in either event would make Ostrander the first Boise State athlete ever to win three individual national championships. Ostrander currently holds two national titles in the women’s outdoor 3,000-meter steeplechase.

Ostrander holds a season best of 8 minutes, 55.26 seconds, in the 3K and a season best (and personal best) of 15:16.38 in the 5K. Both times rank fourth-fastest in the nation this season.

The finals can be streamed live on ESPN3.com. The 5K will be raced at 5:07 p.m. (AKST) Friday, and the 3K will race 3:10 p.m. Saturday.
