Soldotna’s Allie Ostrander won the women’s six-kilometer race Friday at the NCAA Division I West Region cross-country meet at Jefferson Golf Course in Seattle.
The Boise State freshman completed the course in 20 minutes, 10.9 seconds, to come in clear of runner-up Waverly Neer of Oregon by about 21 seconds.
Ostrander was in a lead pack four kilometers into the race, but by the five-kilometer mark she had put 10 seconds on the rest of the field.
The 2015 Kenai Central graduate became the second Boise State athlete to win an NCAA West Region title, joining Emma Bates in 2013.
Ostrander, the three-time Class 4A cross-country champ and 4A record holder in the 1,600 and 3,200 meters in Alaska, has now won five of her six races at the collegiate level. She also found time to slip over to North Wales in mid-September for a victory in the junior women’s race in the World Mountain Running Championships.
Her first cross-country season will culminate with NCAA Division I Nationals in Louisville, Kentucky, on Nov. 21.
