Allie Ostrander was named Women’s Outstanding Performer of the meet following last weekend’s Mountain West Indoor Track and Field Championships in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The redshirt junior scored 20.5 points for Boise State to help the Broncos finish fifth in the women’s team race with 62 total points.
Ostrander earned the award after winning the 3,000-meter title in a meet record time of 9 minutes, 11.61 seconds, finishing second in the women’s mile and anchoring the winning women’s distance medley relay, which captured its fourth straight MW title.
The NCAA also announced Tuesday night that Ostrander can compete in three different events at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field National Championships in Birmingham, Alabama, from March 8 to 9.
For the second time in her career, Ostrander will attempt a double at 3,000 and 5,000 meters. The redshirt junior also qualified for both events as a true freshman during the 2015-16 season. Ostrander is seeded fourth in both events at this year’s national championship.
Ostrander also will join Alexis Fuller, MaLeigha Menegatti and Kristie Schoffield in the distance medley relay. The quartet is seeded third at the national championships.
