Ostrander owns NCAA’s best indoor times in 3,000 and 5,000
The fabulous freshman at Boise State University accomplished both feats on the Dempsey Indoor track in Seattle, Washington.
Ostrander clocked a winning time of 8:54.27 in the 3,000 at the Husky Classic to give her another Mountain West record. Her time was the 10th fastest in indoor collegiate history.
A fortnight earlier at the same track, Ostrander’s 5,000 winning time of 15:21.85 at the UW Invitational was the third-fastest on an oversize track in collegiate indoor history.
How money is this kid?
She has the fastest 3,000 and 5,000 times this season and is a virtual lock to earn a spot in both events for the NCAA indoor national championships.
Ostrander, of Kenai High fame, was an All-American in cross country after she finished second at the D1 national championships.
Away from running, she is a 4.0 student as a kinesiology major and was named to the Academic All-Mountain West Team.
