Our girl is 5'1" and is clearing barriers well over half her height - - 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo? You bet! :D

If national titles are the bar by which greatness is measured, Allie Ostrander is now the best athlete in Boise State history.

The redshirt junior won the women’s 3,000-meter steeplechase for the third year in a row at the NCAA Division I Outdoor Track and Field Championships on Saturday in Austin, Texas. She is the first Bronco to win three national titles, surpassing the two held by Gabe Wallin in the men’s javelin in 2004 and 2005.

Ostrander crossed the finish line in 9 minutes, 37.73 seconds, which is a Mike A. Myers Stadium record and personal best time despite running in 98-degree heat. She finished nearly 7 seconds ahead of second-place Charlotte Prouse of New Mexico to maintain her career unbeaten streak in the steeplechase.
