Boise State redshirt sophomore Allie Ostrander was named the Mountain West Outdoor Women’s Track Athlete of the Week on Tuesday after posting a world-leading time over the weekend in the women’s 3,000-meter steeplechase.

Ostrander cruised to a decisive victory in the steeplechase Friday in the Stanford Invitational, held at Cobb Track and Angell Field in California. The 2015 Kenai Central grad’s meet record time of 9 minutes, 38.57 seconds, was the 14th-fastest time in NCAA history and the current fastest in the world this year, as well as the third-fastest in Mountain West history.

As the reigning Division I women’s steeplechase champion, Ostrander has won all but one race in her collegiate career in the event, with her lone loss being a preliminary race.

Ostrander received the weekly honor alongside Broncos teammate Yusuke Uchikoshi, who earned the men’s weekly award for winning the men’s steeplechase.

The Boise State track and field program will be racing this weekend at the Sun Angel Invitational in Tempe, Arizona, on the campus of Arizona State.
